World map with equator line. It is the imaginary line on the spheroids surface equidistant from its poles dividing it into northern and southern hemispheres. Latitude shown as a horizontal line is the angular distance in degrees minutes and seconds of a point north or south of the equator. Latitude and longitude start with two lines. On the map shown and for that matter on all other maps the arctic circle antarctic circle equator prime meridian tropic of cancer and tropic of capricorn are imaginary lines.
An equator of a rotating spheroid such as a planet is its zeroth circle of latitude parallel. The equator and the prime meridian. Interactive world map scavenger hunt this activity allows students to answer questions as they explore the interactive map of the world. The approximate positions of the sun and moon projected on to the earth are also shown.
Longitude shown as a vertical line is the angular distance in degrees minutes and seconds of a point. The left map presents the place for which you want to find the antipodal point. It divides the earth into the northern and southern hemispheres and forms the imaginary reference line on the earths surface from which latitude is reckoned. It also displays the countries along with the latitudes and longitudes.
This map displays the geographical coordinates the latitude and the longitude of the world. This map helps you find the antipodes the other side of the world of any place on earth. Equator great circle around the earth that is everywhere equidistant from the geographic poles and lies in a plane perpendicular to the earths axis.
