Longitude and latitude

  1. 1. The earth is often divided into two hemispheres, the Northern and Southern. Everything north of the equator<br />is in the Northern Hemisphere and everything south of the equator is in the Southern Hemisphere. <br />north of <br />the equator<br />Northern<br />Hemisphere<br />equator<br />Southern <br />Hemisphere<br />south of the equator<br />
  2. 2. Lines of latitude are measured in degrees (°). The numbers on the lines of latitude show how far that line is north or south of the equator. Anywhere you are on a specific line of latitude, you are the same degrees from the equator no matter where you are on that line.<br />40°<br />N<br />equator<br />0°<br />40°<br />
  3. 3. The earth can also be divided into eastern and western hemispheres. This division is along the Prime Meridian (0°). <br />prime meridian<br />Eastern Hemisphere<br />Western<br />Hemisphere<br />west of the <br />prime meridian<br />east of the<br />prime meridian<br />0°<br />
  4. 4. All vertical lines on the map are lines of longitude. They are parallel to the prime meridian. Thus they never cross over the prime meridian. <br />Use a pen to draw other lines of longitude on the map.<br />prime meridian<br />E<br />W<br />
