## longitude and latitude – Test Your Knowledge

The topic of longitude and latitude under the subject Geography is very interesting and important. Cartographers and geographers divide the Earth into longitudes and latitudes in order to locate points on the globe.These are imaginary lines forming a grid and it helps in finding the location of a place. The longitudes divides earth into 24 equal times zones and the latitudes divides Earth into three heat zones.There are 180 latitudes and these are either on the north or south of Equator.There are 360 longitudes and these are either on the East or West of prime meridian.

Together, longitudes and latitudes form the Earth’s geographical coordinates, and represent the angular distance of any location on the Earth from the Earth’s Equator. Both latitudes and longitudes are measured in degrees.
