Latitude is distance north or south of the equator. Latitude is used to express how far north or south you are, relative to the equator. If you are on the equator your latitude is zero. If you are near the north pole your latitude is nearly 90 degrees north. If you are near the south pole your latitude is almost 90 degrees south.
Conventionally latitude is expressed as degrees north or south. Find Latitude and Longitude.
Longitude is measured in degrees east or west of the prime meridian. Longitude shows your location in an east-west direction, relative to the Greenwich meridian. Places to the east of Greenwich (such as Middle East, India, Japan, Australia and New Zealand) have longitude angles up to 180 degrees east. Places to the west of Greenwich (such as the Atlantic and North and South America) have angles up to 180 deg west.
Both latitude and longitude are measured in degrees, which are in turn divided into minutes and seconds.
