What is East and West Longitude?
Longitude is the measurement east or west of the prime meridian. Longitude is measured by imaginary lines that run around the Earth vertically (up and down) and meet at the North and South Poles. These lines are known as meridians. The other half, the Western Hemisphere, in degrees west of the prime meridian.

What is Longitude also called?
longitude lines. Imaginary lines, also called meridians, running vertically around the globe. Unlike latitude lines, longitude lines are not parallel. Meridians meet at the poles and are widest apart at the equator. Zero degrees longitude (0) is called the prime meridian.
Which countries does the Prime Meridian pass through?
On its path from pole to pole, the Meridian passes through England, France, Spain, Algeria, Mali, Burkina Faso, Togo, Ghana and Antarctica.
What is the meaning of prime meridian?
A prime meridian is the meridian (a line of longitude) in a geographic coordinate system at which longitude is defined to be 0°. Together, a prime meridian and its anti- meridian (the 180th meridian in a 360°-system) form a great circle.
Which is the longest longitude?
Answer: The longest is the equator, whose latitude is zero, while at the poles, at latitudes 90° north and 90° south (or –90°), the circles shrink to a point.
Is West longitude negative?
Both longitude and latitude are angles measured with the center of the earth as an origin. A longitude is an angle from the prime merdian, measured to the east ( longitudes to the west are negative ).
What are the 2 main lines of longitude?
Meridians (lines running from pole to pole) connect points with the same longitude. The prime meridian, which passes near the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, England, is defined as 0° longitude by convention. Positive longitudes are east of the prime meridian, and negative ones are west.
Is Morocco a poor country?
The living standards in Morocco is rated as low. It is by international standards that Morocco is considered a poor country. Out of the 35.2 million population of the country in 2018, some of them are poor and at risk of poverty. It is ranked as the fourth most impoverished country in the Arab world in 2013.

Where is 180 degrees longitude?
The International Date Line, established in 1884, passes through the mid-Pacific Ocean and roughly follows a 180 degrees longitude north-south line on the Earth. It is located halfway round the world from the prime meridian—the zero degrees longitude established in Greenwich, England, in 1852.
Are latitudes equidistant?
The lines that run east and west each have a constant latitude value and are called parallels. They are equidistant and parallel to one another, and form concentric circles around the earth. It is equal in distance from each of the poles, and the value of this latitude line is zero.
How many longitudes are there in total?
There are 360 degrees of longitude (+ 180 ° eastward and − 180 ° westward.). The longitude line of 0 degrees is known as the Prime Meridian and it divides the world into the Eastern Hemisphere and the Western Hemisphere.
