1
**Latitude and Longitude**

2
Latitude is measured from the equator, with positive values going north and negative values going south. Longitude is measured from the Prime Meridian (which is the longitude that runs through Greenwich, England), with positive values going east and negative values going west. So, for example, 65 degrees west longitude, 45 degrees north latitude is -65 degrees longitude, +45 degrees latitude.

3
Latitude Measures North and South from Equator (0 Degrees)

4
Longitude Measures East and West from Prime Meridian (0 Degrees)

5
Hemisphere Hemi = Half Earth can be split 2 ways, either by using Equator or by using Prime Meridian

6
If Split by Equator… We get the Northern and Southern Hemispheres

7
**If Split by Prime Meridian**

We get the Eastern and Western Hemispheres
