Where in the World Are You?
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Caption: 1- circle of latitude, 2- Prime Meridian of longitude
 
2     Let's say you are at 61 degrees 13 minutes N, 149 degrees 54 minutes W. Where is THAT? Anchorage, Alaska! What, you don't see any lines of latitude and longitude intersecting around you? Of course not; they are imaginary.
 
3     Mapmakers, navigators, and others use lines of latitude and longitude to locate exact points on the Earth. To understand latitude, let's begin with the equator. This is an imaginary line around the middle of the Earth. It separates the globe into two halves called hemispheres. North of the equator is the northern hemisphere. South of the equator is the southern hemisphere.
