WHERE ARE WE (ON EARTH)?

By now, we know that latitude zero is represented by an imaginary line called the equator, and we know as well that longitude zero is represented by the Greenwich meridian. Thus, and knowing also that there are 360 meridians (180 east and 180 west) and 180 parallels (90 north and 90 south), we can find geographical coordinates that can help us locate a place on a map.

Have a look at this video explaining latitude and longitude and get ready to know how to deal with the Earth’s imaginary grid!
