There is an infinite number of possible longitudinal lines. But the total number of degrees is 360; 180 east and 180 west. There are 60 minutes in a degree and 60 seconds in the minute. How you sub-divide from there gives infinite possibilities.. There are usually 36 lines of longitude on the glo…be or a map, located at 10 degrees longitude apart. (MORE)
What is the name of the imaginary line at 0 degrees longitude which passes through GreenwichEngland?
It is the "Prime Meridian" or the "0 degree Meridian" which is the basis for calculating time in most of the world.
No. The equator is 0 degrees latitude.\n . Zero degrees longitude is the Prime Meridian (which is in Greenwich). No. It's zero degrees latitude .
The line of 0Â° longitude is called the prime meridian (it is also known as the Greenwich Meridian). The Prime Meridian

90 degrees north latitude and 90 degrees south latitude are the maximum values; they represent the exact locations of the pole. Zero degrees is the equator. 180 degrees longitude is the exact limit of longitude; it represents the originally defined location of the International Date Line, exactly op…posite the Prime Meridian.. Oh. On second reading (and some editing of the question) I finally grasped the question. Latitude: the equator is one. Then there is one to eighty nine in the north, and again in the south. 90 degrees north and south are points, not lines. That makes 179 lines of latitude. Then you have the Prime Meridian (one); and 179 degrees east, and again west. That's 359. Then there is 180 degrees which makes 360 lines of longitude. 179 plus 360 equals 539 lines total. (MORE)
The line of latitude at 0 degrees is the equator. 0 degrees= middle both ways . . To remember longitude from latitude and latitude from longitude remember this: . long itude: LONG... up and down... North and South . lat itude: lat.. flat... side to side... East and West
the direction that longitude run is 0 the 180 degrees and also east and west
The Prime Meridian at Greenwich England is at 0 degrees longitude and is the basis for all navigation and international time keeping.
How many degrees differences is there between each line of latitude and longtitude shown on the globes?
The name given to the imaginary line of zero longitude on the earth's surface is the " Prime Meridian " or " Greenwich Meridian ". It's a line that joins the North and South Poles, and crosses a spot on the floor of the room that houses the zenith telescope at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, Lon…don, England. As it runs through Greenwich (the observatory site), it is also called the Greenwich Meridian. Time is often expressed in terms of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), which is related to Universal Coordinated Time (UTC). (MORE)
The line name at 0 degrees longitude is commonly referred to as the Prime Meridian. This line passes through Greenwich, London, United Kingdom and can also be referred to as the International Meridian or Greenwich Meridian.
0 degrees longitude is knows as the Prime Meridian or the Greenwich Meridian. it passes through the Greenwich Observatory in London. The opposite (180 degrees) is the International Date Line.
The Equator is 0 degrees latitude, and the Prime (or Grenwich) Meridian is 0 degrees longitude.
it's called the prime meridian, on the African side of the planet and it is often referred to as the international date line on the pacific side.
find a map and count it!! I did it so now i know and so should you.. SHAME
Longitude is Verticle. the 0 degree runs north to south. Its the Prime Meridian, also called the Rose line in some contexts.
The Prime Meridian is the beginning (and ending) of a complete 360 Â° circle around the Earth. It runs through The royal Observatory in Greenwich England simply because that is the spot where the meeting took place to determine where the circle would start. Other than that, there's really no s…ignificance to that particular Longitude. (MORE)
they are lines that go up and down then the other one is the line that goes left to right
Greenwich Meridian. And it's not completely imaginary; you can see it going right through Greenwich Observatory and of course, all maps.
0 degrees longitude is called the Prime Meridian. It runs from the North pole to the South pole, passing through Greenwich Observatory in England.Greenwich was chosen by international agreement (largely due to it being the de facto standard anyway), though historically other conventions have been us…ed.

The 0 degree longitude goes through all Greenwich Meantime Countries. These are, in order of north to south: . United Kingdom . France . Spain . Algeria . Mali . Burkina Faso . Togo . Ghana . It also passes through Antartica.
The Prime Meridian. The Prime Meridian is an imaginary line which runs from the North Pole to the South Pole.
The prime meridian ( 0 longitude) crosses the equator (0 latitude) in the Gulf of Guinea, about 300 miles south of Accra, the capital of Ghana.
What is the capital of the nation that borders Morocco and through which the 0 degree line of longitude passes?
The nation is Algeria, and the capital is Algiers . The 0Â° meridian passes through Algeria near the Mediterranean coast city of Wahran.
The imaginary line formed by all points on Earth with zero longitude is the Prime Meridian.
You are at sea in the Gulf of Guinea, roughly 380 miles south of Accra, Ghana. Hopefully in a boat.
The point 0 / 0 is offshore of west Africa, in the Gulf of Guinea, about 380 miles south of Accra, Ghana.
It means any place on a certain imaginary line on the Earth's surface. The imaginary line is the one between the north and south poles that passes through a certain place in a certain suburb of London, England. The longitude of any place on Earth is measured east or west from that line. The l…ongitude of every point on the line is zero. (MORE)
-- The "Prime Meridian" marks zero longitude. -- The "180 th meridian" marks 180Â° longitude. The International Dateline is either on or relatively near the 180 th meridian at any given latitude on it.
What line of longitude is labeled 0 degrees and separates the Northern Hemisphere from the Southern Hemisphere?
The 0 degree line of latitude separates te northern and the southern hemispheres. It is called the Equator. Lines of latitude mark distances from equator to each respective pole. From 0 degrees latitude (the Equator), there are 90 degrees to each pole. Each degree of latitude is 60 nautical miles.… 1 nautical mile is approximately 6,076 feet. So, 90degrees x 60nm/degree = 5,400 nautical miles from the Equator to a pole. This is a very rough calculation, because the Earth is not perfectly round. Be sure to remember, that a statute mile is 5,280 feet (rather than 6,076 feet). So, in terms of statute miles, the Earth's circumference is closer to 25,000 miles. Air and land navigation typically uses nautical miles or distance measurement. Speed is in nautical miles per hour (called "knots"). Lines of latitude are parallel to each other, so the distance between them is the same no matter how far you are from the Equaor. But, lines of longitude (from north pole to south pole) are not parallel -- the distance between them is greatest at the equator (basically 1 nm apart), but the instant you move north or south the distance starts shrinking as the lines of longitutde merge te closer you get to the poles.

lots of things. 0 degrees longitude (also called the prime meridian) runs through england, europe, and africa.
What number of degrees is the line of longitude on the other side of the Earth from the line at 0 degrees longitude?
Travelling all the way around the Earth from the the Prime Meridian (0Â°) takes you in a circle of 360Â° Therefore, at the exact opposite side of the Earth as the prime Meridian is 180Â° . Longitude is measure from 0Â° to 180Â° either East or West of Greenwich so it ends at 180Â°.
Countries located on the Prime Meridian include: . Greenland . United Kingdom (England) . France . Spain . Algeria . Mali . Burkino Faso . Togo . Ghana Note: Since the Prime Meridian is the dividing line between the eastern and western hemispheres, any country that it crosses is in both …of them. (MORE)
How many degrees are different is there between each line of latitude and longitude shown on the globe?
There is no official set of "lines". Some globes and maps have more lines, spaced closer together. Some globes and maps have fewer lines, spaced farther apart. Some globes and maps have no lines at all. We have no way of knowing how the particular globe that you're looking at is marked, and th…e next one you see may be different. (MORE)
The point at which the equator (0Â° latitude) and the prime meridian (0Â° longitude) intersect has no real significane but it is in the Atlantic Ocean.
The equator goes all around the Earth, it's almost 25,000 miles long, and every point on it has zero latitude. The Prime Meridian goes halfway around the Earth. It's over 12,000 miles long, and every point on it has zero longitude. There's one point on Earth that has both zero lati…tude and zero longitude ... the point where the Equator and the Prime Meridian cross. That point is in the Gulf of Guinea, off the coast of west Africa, about 380 miles south of Accra, Ghana. (MORE)
This is a difficult question to answer because it is probably in the realms of spherical geometry, not the Euclidean geometry. In the Euclidean sense there is no straight line on the suface of a sphere. The 0 and 180 degrees longitude can be seen to represent the intersection of the sphere (the ear…th) with a vertical plane. In that case, any one of the infinite number of lines in that plane will go through both the longitudes - and only those longitudes. Strictly speaking, the earth is not spherical, and its axis is tilted so the plane would not be vertical, but these details do not affect the argument. (MORE)
The world has agreed that the Royal Observatory at Greenwich, England is located at zero degrees longitude.
All the way once around the globe is defined as 360 degrees of longitude. You're free to draw as few or as many lines on your map as you want in that range. There is no standard set of "lines" that everybody is required to use. They're just marks that some manufacturers print on their maps a…nd globes, and others don't. Personally, I use software that can display 648,000 lines of longitude around the globe if I want to see them. That's one line crossing the equator roughly every 200 feet, all around the Earth. Usually, I don't need that many. And if the spot I'm looking at falls between two of those lines, I estimate the longitude between those two numbers. (MORE)
The line composed of all points with zero longitude is called the Prime Meridian. The line composed of all points with 180 degrees longitude is called the 180 th meridian
How many degrees difference is there between each line of latitude and longitude shown on the globes?
That entirely depends on the manufacturer of the globe, and they're not all the same. Some globes don't have any lines at all printed on them.
Prime Meridian The prime meridian is actually a complete circle that runs longitudinally around the earth. As it runs through the Atlantic Ocean it is called the Prime Meridian or 0Â° Longitude. As you follow the prime meridian to the other side of the earth and it passes through the Pacific Oc…ean it becomes the 180Â° of longitude also known as the International Date Line. (MORE)
This is the "prime meridian" (also known as the Greenwich Meridian for the British observatory on the line).
That's like asking "How many inches difference is between the markson the ruler ?". The answer is: It depends on the ruler. They're not all the same,and there's no official standard set of marks. Some globes have lines every 15 degrees,some have lines every 20 degrees, or every 30 degrees, or every… 10degrees, and some have no lines printed on them at all. (MORE)
There's only one line at zero latitude, there's only one linearound the middle of the globe, they're both the same line, and it's called the"Equator.".
How many degrees difference is there between each line of latitude and longitude shown on the globe?
Some globes have lines printed every 15 degrees, others havelines printed every 20 degrees, or every 30 degrees, or every 10degrees, and some globes have no lines printed on them at all. There's no standard set of lines. A line can be drawn at anylongitude you want, and a line can be drawn at any l…atitude youwant. There is mapping software that can print lines separated by 2seconds of arc if I want them. That's 324,000 lines of latitude and648,000 lines of longitude. . Your question is a lot like asking "How many inches difference isthere between each mark of length shown on the ruler ?". Theanswer, of course, is that it depends on the ruler, they're not allthe same, and there's no official standard set of marks. Eachdegree of latitude (measuring north or south) equals 60 nauticalmiles, so one minute of latitude equals 1 NM. At the equator, each degree of longitude (measuring east/west) isalso equal to 60NM. However, the longitude lines converge as youmove north or south, and the further north or south you go, thecloser together they are. You can calculate the change, which isproportional to the cosine of your latitude. So at the equator, oneminute of latitude equals one mile, while at latitude 45 degreesnorth or south, one minute of longitude equals 0.707 NM. A hundredyards south of the north pole, each step east or west is a halfdegrees of longitude! (MORE)
The prime meridian is the line of longitude atwhich longitude is defined to be 0 located at Greenwich, Englandwhich marks the GMT timezone.
That would be the Prime Meridian, which runs from the North Pole, through the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, England, and ends at the South Pole.
