3 Chp 3-1 Latitude and Longitude The earth is divided into lots of lines called latitude and longitude.The lines measure distances in degrees.LongitudeLatitudeancient Greek geographer Ptolemy created a grid system and listed the coordinates for places throughout the known world in his book Geography. But it wasn't until the middle ages that the latitude and longitude system was developed
4 Latitude and Longitude Latitude lines run side to side.Has units in North and South direction maximum of 90 degreesNorthSouthHas 180 degrees total (90 north and 90 south)
5 Latitude and Longitude Longitude lines run up and down. Responsible for the 24 hour time zoneHas units in East and West directionWest EastHas 360 degrees total (180 east and 180 west)
6 Writing Geographical Coordinate Write the latitude line coordinate first (north and south)Then write the longitude line after (west and east)

8 Where is 0 degree?The equator is 0 degree latitude.Equator
9 Where is 0 degree?The prime meridian is 0 degrees longitude. This imaginary line runs through several countries.
10 Great Circles Any circle that divides the globe into halves. The equator is the only line of latitude that is a great circle.
