11.1271° N, 78.6569° E

Similarly, how do I find the latitude and longitude of a place?

- On your computer, open Google Maps. If you're using Maps in Lite mode, you'll see a lightning bolt at the bottom and you won't be able to get the coordinates of a place.
- Right-click the place or area on the map.
- Select What's here?
- At the bottom, you'll see a card with the coordinates.

What is latitude and longitude in simple terms?

What is longitude and latitude in map?

The **latitude** is specified by degrees, starting from 0° and ending up with 90° to both sides of the equator, making **latitude** Northern and Southern. The equator is the line with 0° **latitude**. The **longitude** has the symbol of lambda and is another angular coordinate defining the position of a point on a surface of earth.

Which state is located at 16 N and 76 E?

Kerala, India is **located** at India **country** in the **States** place category with the gps coordinates of 10° 51' 1.8576'' **N and 76**° **16**' 15.8880'' **E**.

8.0883° N, 77.5385° E

- On your computer, open Google Maps. If you're using Maps in Lite mode, you'll see a lightning bolt at the bottom and you won't be able to get the coordinates of a place.

The person to have been appointed Chief Minister the maximum number of times is M. **Karunanidhi**. He is the only Chief Minister with 5 terms in office (10 February 1969–4 January 1971, 15 March 1971–31 January 1976, 27 January 1989–30 January 1991, 13 May 1996–13 May 2001, 13 May 2006–2011).

- Step 1: Multiply (×) the "degrees" by 60.
- Step 2: Add (+) the "minutes"
- Step 3: If the Latitude (Longitude) degrees are S (W) use a minus sign ("-") in front.
- Step 4: Subtract Reference Location converted to Minutes.

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.

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.

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.
