AnswerThere is no standard set of "lines", and no standard distance between them.

A 'line' can be drawn at any latitude, or not.

One degree of latitude represents about 111.1 km or 69 statute miles,

regardless of how many lines are or are not drawn in it.

What distance do latitude lines marks?

Lines of latitude mark distance in degrees north and south of the Equator.


What is the distance between latitudes?

There really is no distance between lines of latitude. Maps depict lines in 5 or 10 degree intervals, but lines of latitude are man-made lines that actually can be taken down to the second or fraction of a second in order to map the exact location of a point on Earth.


Where are latitude lines farthest apart?

Lines of latitude are always the same distance apart.

Latitude is the angle, measured north or south, between the equator and a place.

Which way do lines of latitude measure?

Lines of latitude measure degrees (and distance) north or south from the equator.


Define longitude and latitude?

Lines of Longitude- are imaginary lines going from North to South, they measure the distance between West and East. Another name for lines of longitude is meridians, because the Prime Meridian is 0° longitude.Lines of Latitude- are imaginary lines going from East to West, they measure the distance between North and South. Another name for lines of latitude is parallels, because all lines of latitude are parallel to each other. Lines of longitude are not parallel to each other, because the earth is shaped like a potato.


What is lines that measure distance from the equator?

latitude


What is the actual distance between lines of the longitude?

It depends on one's latitude, I believe. Distance at the Poles, Zero, at the Equator about 700 miles.


Nautical miles in one degree of longitude?

The lines of longitude radiate out from the poles. At their point of origin, i.e. at 90o latitude, there is no distance at all between the lines! However, at latitude 89o, very near the poles, the distance between the respective 'one degree' lines of longitude is about one nautical mile. At latitude 48.37o the distance along the line of latitude is 40 nautical miles And a 1o longitude difference along the equator (0o latitude) represents a distance of about 60.1 nautical miles.

What do lines of latitude measure lines of longitude?

Lines of latitude measure angular distance from the equator, that is north or south. Lines of longitude measure angular distance from the Greenwich or Prime meridian, that is east or west.


What are 3 differences between latitude and longitude?

There are three major differences between latitude and longitude. Lines of latitude are parallel to one another, but lines of longitude are not. Lines of longitude are each 180 degrees in length, and latitude lines are all 360 degrees in length. Degrees of latitude have the same mileage all over the Earth. Degrees of longitude have more or less depending on the distance north or south.


How many miles are between 175 west longitude and 179 east longitude?

There is no way to tell. Their precise latitude locations would enable this computation. Note that unlike N and S latitude lines, which have a fixed distance between degree lines, the spacing between longitude lines varies greatly with latitude. Close to the poles, there is practically no distance between 175° W and 179° E -- at the equator, the lines are separated by about 360 nautical miles, which is about 414.3 miles or 666.7 kilometers.


How far is it between two latitude lines?

It is about 70 miles between two latitude lines. ^^~


Measures distance north and south of the equator?

You're obviously looking for either "latitude" or "lines of latitude". These are both popular but incorrect answers. Latitude is an angle, not a distance. And lines don't measure anything.


What lines measure distance from either side of the equator to the poles?

What are the imaginary lines that measure distance north to south of the equator?

parallel lines, or lines of latitude.


What is the difference between lateral and longitudinal directions?

Lateral direction runs from east to west and longitudinal direction runs from north to south. Latitude lines are parallel and equidistant from each other. The distance between latitude lines is approximately 69 miles. The equator is at 0 degree latitude. Longitude lines are known as meridians and converge at the poles. Longitude lines are widest at the equator.


What lines measure distance in degrees north and south of the equator?

These are called latitude lines.
