4. LATITUDE • Measures north and south of the Equator. • Measured in units called degrees. • These parallel lines go east and west.

5. When looking for the latitude of a place: 1-Find the place on a map, 2-Locate the Equator. 3-Determine if the place is north or south of the Equator. 4-Write down the coordinate. Latitude

6. Example. Locate Houston, Texas on your map. Is it north or south of the Equator? At what degree is it? Locate Cape Town, South Africa on your map. Is it north or south of the Equator? At what degree is it? Latitude

7. Example. Locate Houston, Texas on your map. Is it north or south of the Equator? At what degree is it? Houston, Texas: 30° N. Locate Cape Town, South Africa on your map. Is it north or south of the Equator? At what degree is it? Cape Town, South Africa: 34° S. Latitude

8. Find the latitude • Baghdad, Iraq • Madrid, Spain • La Paz, Bolivia

9. LONGITUDE • Measures east and west of the Prime Meridian. • Measured in units called degrees • These meridian lines go south and north.

10. When looking for a location's longitude: 1-Find the place on a map. 2-Locate the Prime Meridian. 3-Determine if the place is east or west of the Prime Meridian. 4-Write down the coordinate. Longitude

11. Example. Locate Houston, Texas on your map. Is it east or west of the Prime Meridian? Houston, Texas Locate Cape Town, South Africa on your map. Is it east or west of the Prime Meridian? Cape Town, South Africa Longitude
