      • Doesn’t change
        • Latitude/Longitude
        • Hemispheres
  • Grid System
        • Address
    • RELATIVE:compared to other places(variable)
      • Changes dependent upon where you are comparing it to.
        • Direction
absolute location
Absolute Location
  • Find:
    • 41 N, 12 E
