What are latitudes and longitudes?

Latitudes and longitudes are imaginary lines that are used to locate points on the Earth's surface. Latitudes are imaginary horizontal lines that run parallel to the Equator, ranging from 0° at the Equator to 90° at the North and South Poles. Longitudes, on the other hand, are imaginary vertical lines that run from the North Pole to the South Pole. They are measured in degrees east or west of the Prime Meridian, which is located in Greenwich, England. Together, latitudes and longitudes help geographers, cartographers, and navigators pinpoint exact locations on the Earth's surface.
