  • 3. Latitude lines run east/west but they measure north or south of the equator (0°) splitting the earth into the Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere Northern hemisphereSouthern Hemisphere Francesco Vella Class 3.1
  • 4. Lines oflatitude arenumberedfrom 0° atthe equatorto 90° N.L.at the NorthPole. Lines of latitude are numbered from 0° at the equator to 90° S.L. at the South Francesco Vella Class 3.1 Pole.
