This image is supposed to teach you what longitude and latitude is supposed to be. And it will teach you how to make your own latitude and longitude grid.
Latitude is an angle which ranges from 0 degrees at the equator to 90 degrees at the poles. Lines of constant latitude or parallels run east- west as circles parallel to the equator.
Longitude is given as a measurement ranging from o degrees from at the Prime Meridian to +180 degrees eastward and -180 degrees westward.
Longitude facts: 1.The term longitude is also used in various celestial coordinate systems.
Fact #2: Longitude lines measure distance east or west of the Prime Meridian.
Latitude facts: 1. Measure distance north or south of the equator.
Fact #2 Latitude lines get shorter toward the poles.
I hope that this has taught you a little bit about
latitude and longitude.
Latitude and longitude is a fun thing to learn
because it teaches you how to find a place on
a map instead of using a GPS. Another thing is that you can teach your parents or brothers and sisters how to do latitude and longitude on a grid.
Questions: 1, what way does latitude
lines go? Up and Down.
Question2: what way does longitude
lines go? Side to side
Question 3: The term longitude
is also used in what?
Question 4:What is the latitude lines
measure distance of the equator?
Question 5: Latitude lines get what toward the poles? They get shorter
If you had the coordinates 9 degrees north and 79 degrees west what you would do is you would look at the north side of the grid and look at the west side of the grid and you would look at 10 degrees and look right below it and that would be the 9 degrees north. And the you would go from the 9 degrees north line and move to the right with your finger still on the line and you would look up at the west side of the grid and you should go up and you would look at the 80 degrees and go to the left side of it and you would find panama.
A common problem people have
with latitude and longitude is where
the lines curve, but you can catch on to it.
A common problem people have with
North or south of the equator
A prime meridian is a meridian in a coordinate
system at which longitude is defined to be 0 degrees.
The equator is an imaginery line
drawn around the earth equally distant
from both poles, dividing the earth into
northern and southern hemispheres
