LATITUDE:
*The angular distance of a location north or south of the equator.
*Measured in degrees, minutes and seconds north or south.

There are 60' per degree.
Equator= 0 Degrees.
North Pole=90 Degrees N
South Pole=90 Degrees S

LONGITUDE: The angular distance from the Prime Meridian.

*Prime Meridian = 0 degrees.

The equator and the Prime Meridian divide the Earth into hemispheres. The area North of the Equator is the
Northern Hemisphere
. The area South is known as the
Southern Hemisphere
. Area East:
Eastern Hemisphere
. Area West:
Western Hemisphere
.

Which hemisphere are we currently in?
