Swimming off the coast of Africa. Or more realistically walking on a ship. Its over 300 miles off shore...
No country is at 0deg lat and 0deg long. Those coordinates fall in the Atlantic Ocean in the Gulf of Guinea, off the west coast of Africa.
This point is in the Natuna Sea of Indonesia, about 120 miles southeast of Singapore.
That point is just outside of CastellÃ³n de la Plana, a town on the Mediterranean coast of Spain.
The equator is defined as the origin of latitude , i.e. zero degrees north/south. It passes through every longitude.
Depending on where the yellow line is painted, 0 degrees Latitude and 0 degrees Longitude is either in the Gulf of Guinea or the Atlantic Ocean.. The closest country would be Ghana, closely followed by Togo, Benin and the island nation of Sao Tome.
That point is located in the Gulf of Guinea off the west coast of Africa.
the is no name it is just a set of coordinates it juts happens they fall in the atlantic
Not much! It's a point south of Ghana in the Gulf of Guinea, where the Equator and the Prime Meridian meet.
0 degrees latitude is the equator. So 0 latitude and 27 west longitude is on the equator and right in the middle of the Atlantic ocean, between Brazil and Africa.
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, about 380 miles (611 kilometers) south of Ghana and 670 miles (1078 km) west of Gabon.. http://geography.about.com/library/faq/blqzzerozero.htm… (MORE)
The Equator is 0 degrees latitude, and the Prime (or Grenwich) Meridian is 0 degrees longitude.
No there is not, it is in the middle of the ocean. If you go to Google Earth and enter 0.0N, 0.0W you will be taken to a part of the Gulf of Guinea that is west of the island of Sao Tome and south of Accra (the capital of Ghana). I.e. it is in the ocean just off the west coast of Africa (West of… Equatorial Guinea) ======= Fascinatingly, intrepid sailors used to go there as a matter of routine, without too much effort, even in the days long before Google Earth.

0 degrees latitude and 140 degrees east longitude is a location in the western Pacific Ocean just to the north of New Guinea.
The point at which the equator (0Â° latitude) and the Prime Meridian (0Â° longitude) intersect has no real significance, but it's in the Gulf of Guinea, about 380 miles (611 kilometers) south of Accra, Ghana and 670 miles (1078 km) west of the coast of Gabon.
You would have to swim. The point at which the equator (0Â° latitude) and the Prime Meridian (0Â° longitude) intersect has no real significance but it is in the Atlantic Ocean, about 380 miles (611 kilometers) south of Ghana and 670 miles (1078 km) west of Gabon its called the 'Gulf of Guinea'… (MORE)

If you were on foot you would need to be a good swimmer, because you would be In the Atlantic Ocean, or more specifically, in the Gulf of Guinea, due south of Accra, Ghana, and due west of Libreville, Gabon. It is where the Prime Meridian crosses the Equator. However, hopefully you would be on… a boat enjoying the heat of the day and the warm sea breezes, or in an airplane admiring the view.

\nGenerally, that is an example of the most common way of specifying the location of a point on the Earth's surface.\n. \nSpecifically, it specifies a point on the Equator in the Atlantic Ocean about 685 miles ENE of the coast of Brasil. (There is no land at the point specified, if you go there, l…et us know what you find!)\n. \nYou can find the answer to these kinds of questions by using Google Earth. The "fly to" search box accepts entries in latitude and longitude form in various formats, including what I used for this: "0N 27W". (MORE)
Zero degrees Latitude and zero degrees Longitude is in the water! The body of water is called the Gulf of Guinea and the "absolute location" is off the west coast of Africa. Some people may say the Atlantic Ocean and I would not disagree. I am sure the fish can't tell if they are in the Gulf or the …Ocean. Man-made lines are for man only!! So, technically, it is in the Gulf of Guinea. If you look at Africa as the profile of a face with a nose pointing east, the spot is right under the back of the neck just a bit below the hairline.

The worlds prime meridian is based at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, London. This was established by an International Conference in 1884
51 degrees north 0 degrees west The longitude is zero. The latitude is 51 degrees north.
It's a set of geographic coordinates that's missing an important piece of information. In order to locate the point, it's essential to know whether the 50 degrees is 'north' or 'south' latitude. If it's 50 degrees north, then the point is in the English Channel, about 3/4 of the way from the north …coast of France to the south coast of England. If it's 50 degrees south, then the point is in the south Atlantic ocean, about 1,400 miles southwest of Capetown, and about 3,100 miles southeast of Buenos Aires. As you can see, it does make a difference. (MORE)
That point is in northeastern Ghana . It's about 22 miles west of the border with Togo, 70 miles northeast of Tamale, and 80 miles southeast of Bolgatanga.
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.
The Prime Meridian crosses the equator in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of west Africa, about 300 miles south of Accra, Ghana.
The Equator and Prime Meridian meet at this point. It is in the Atlantic Ocean off the southern coast of west Africa, the closest country is Ghana.
Personally, I would be sinking, as there is no solid ground to stand on at that location.
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.
That point is in the Gulf of Guinea, about 380 miles south of Accra, Ghana.
Not a continent - that location is the island of Sulawesi - in the sea to the north of Australia.
It's called the intersection of the Equator and the Prime Meridian, at a point in the Gulf of Guinea, south of Accra, Ghana, and west of Libreville, Gabon. If it has any special name, we're not aware of it.
That point is about 60 miles north of the town of Palu on a northern isthmus of Sulawesi, one of the larger islands of Indonesia. Indonesia is part of the Asian continent.
A latitude/longitude describes one point on the Earth's surface. That point is in central Gabon, about 177 miles east-southeast of the center of Libreville. It's not correct to say that a whole nation is located at that point. There are trillions of other points in Gabon, and every one of them has… a different latitude/longitude. (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.
That will be the equator, at what is often called the Greenwich Meridian. That spot is just to the south of Africa, under the northwestern extension of the continent.
The equator is the line made up of all points on earth with zero latitude and any longitude.
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)
Zero longitude / Zero latitude is a point offshore of west Africa in the Gulf of Guinea, about 380 miles south of Accra, Ghana. Altitude is typically measured relative to Mean Sea Level. Since your point is well out in the open ocean, it's probably best to simply say that zero altitude at tha…t spot is the long-term average of the water's surface there. (MORE)
That point is on the Mediterranean coast of Spain, just a couple of miles northeast of the town of Castellon de la Plana, about 42 miles northeast of Valencia.
Latitude can be either north or south latitude, so there are two different latitudes for each number. But zero is OK, because zero north and zero south are actually the same place ... the equator ... so that part of the question is no problem. Now, longitude can be either east or west longitude, so… similarly, there are two different longitudes for each number, and since the question has no idea which one it's talking about, we have to check both of them and see where they are. 0 latitude / 110 degrees east longitude: That point is on the Indonesian part of the island of Borneo, about 45 miles east of Pontianak. 0 latitude / 110 degrees west longitude: That point is in the Pacific Ocean, about 1,580 miles due south of the southern tip of Baja California, and about 2,070 miles due west of the coast of South America in Ecuador.

No point on Earth can have both a north and a south coordinate. (Except points on the equator, where the latitude is zero so it doesn't matter whether it's zero north or zero south.)
That point is on Sumatra in Indonesia. And if you got used to using "east" and "west" longitude, you wouldn't need to divulge the 'hint' that it's in Asia.
That point is in the sea, about 180 miles north-northwest of the city of Jayapura, on the Indonesian half of the island of New Guinea.
It's a point at sea in the Indian Ocean that's at least 400 miles from the nearest island (Seychelles) and almost 900 miles from the nearest continental coast (Somalia in Africa).
When you give a set of latitude/longitude coordinates, you narrow the spot down to a single point, so it's not possible for a whole country to be there. That point is in southwestern France, about 30.4 miles east-northeast of the center of Bordeaux.
That point is on the equator (zero latitude) in the western Pacific ocean. -- just east of the Marshall Islands -- about 1,450 miles north-northeast of Suva, the capital of Fiji -- about 1,720 miles southwest of Honolulu -- about 3,390 miles northeast of Sydney, Australia -- about 4,0…00 miles southeast of Tokyo -- about 4,150 miles southwest of Los Angeles (MORE)
The equator is located at zero latitude, and there is a point on it at every possible longitude.
