### What is longitude and latitude example?

Latitude and longitude are a pair of numbers (coordinates) used to describe a position on the plane of a geographic coordinate system. The numbers are in decimal degrees format and range from -90 to 90 for latitude and -180 to 180 for longitude. For example, Washington DC has a latitude 38.8951 and longitude -77.0364 .

### Is latitude vertical or horizontal?

One measures the distance from the equator, the other from the Prime Meridian. This illustration of Earth is overlaid with a grid of latitude and longitude. The horizontal lines are latitude and the vertical lines are longitude.

### What is difference between latitude and longitude?

### How do you convert XY coordinates to latitude and longitude?

The above two formulas are derived from the following formulas: x = R * cos (latitude) * cos (longitude); y = R * cos (latitude) * sin (longitude); z = R * sin (latitude). In this formula, sin and cos are mathematical functions.

### Can Google maps show longitude and latitude?

You can find coordinates on Google Maps to give you the exact positioning (the latitude and longitude) of any location. It's easy to find coordinates on Google Maps on your phone or computer, and you can copy and paste your coordinates to share a precise location with others.

### What is an example of longitude?

Longitude is the angular distance of a place east or west of the meridian at Greenwich, England. For example, New York and Miami have almost exactly the same longitudes: around 80 degrees west. Berlin on the other hand has a longitude of 13 degrees east. Beijing, China, has a longitude of 116 degrees east.
