A distance North or South from the Equator, measured in degrees. Valid values are between -90 (the South Pole) and +90 (the North Pole). Northern latitudes are positive (0 to 90 degrees), southern latitudes are negative (0 to -90 degrees).
In a planeto-centric co-ordinate system, the angle measured at the center of the planet from the equator to a point on the planet's surface, towards one of the poles. Also used, by analogy, as one co-ordinate in the ecliptic and galactic systems.
This is a means of determining how far north or south of the Equator a vessel is. Imaginary lines of latitude are used in this process. The Equator is 0º. All other lines of latitude run parallel to the Equator up to 90º at the North Pole and to 90º at the South Pole. When you have worked out your latitude and longitude together you can determine a vessel's exact position.
Latitude is the name given to imaginary lines parallel to the Equator which give a measure of the distance north or south of the Equator. It is expressed in degrees, ranging from 0° at the Equator to 90° at the Poles. MORE
Latitude is a north-south measurement of position on the Earth. It is defined by the angle measured from a horizontal plane located at the Earth's center that is perpendicular to the polar axis. A line connecting all places of the same latitude is termed a parallel. Latitude is measured in degrees, minutes, and seconds. Measurements of latitude range from equator (0°) to 90° North and South from this point.
Angle made by a perpendicular to a given point on the surface of a sphere or ellipsoid representing the Earth and the plane of the Equator ('+' if the point is north of the Equator, '-' if it is south). One of the two common geographic coordinates of a point on the Earth
noun - Angular distance of the surface of a planet that measures distance north/south from the equator. Latitudinal lines on a trionian planet run east/west, and are in the shape of circles. Each latitude on tetronian planet is in the shape of a torus.
(abbrev. LAT) The location north or south in reference to the equator, which is designated at zero (0) degrees. Lines of latitude are parallel to the equator and circle the globe. The North and South poles are at 90 degrees North and South latitude.
a north-south measurement of position on Earth, defined by the angle measured from a horizontal plane located at Earth's center that is perpendicular to the polar axis and measured in degrees, minutes and seconds. Measurements range from equator (0 degrees) to 90 degrees north and south from this point. (A line connecting all places on the same latitude is called a parallel.)
Used to describe the North-South position of a point as measured usually in degrees or decimal degrees above or below the equator. Latitude lines are the horizontal lines on a map that increase form 0 degrees at the Equator to 90 degrees at both the North (+90.0 degrees) and South (-90.0 degrees) poles.

Imaginary lines that cross the surface of the Earth parallel to the Equator, measuring how far north or south of the Equator a place is located. A measure of distance north or south of the equator. One degree of latitude equals approximately 110 kilometers (69 miles).
Geographic position of the Remediation Site with respect to the Earth's Equator; expressed in degrees, minutes, and seconds. Used together with a measurement of longitude to identify a specific location on the earth's surface.
A measurement of position in the north-south direction relative to the Earth's equator. The equator has a latitude of 0 degrees. The north pole has a latitude of 90 degrees north and the south pole has a latitude of 90 degrees south.
an angular measurement of north-south location on Earth's surface. Latitude ranges from 90° south (at the south pole), through 0° (all along the equator), to 90° north (at the north pole). Latitude is usually defined as a positive value in the northern hemisphere and a negative value in the southern hemisphere. Click here for an in-depth explanation of latitude and longitude from NASA.

A line of universal distance north or south from the equator, along which any given day length is the same, at any location, east or west. Latitudes are expressed in degrees north or south from the equator, taking the center of the earth as the point of origin.
Latitude is the angular distance north or south from the equator to a particular location. The equator has a latitude of zero degrees. The North Pole has a latitude of 90 degrees North; the South Pole has a latitude of 90 degrees South.
Latitude is the distance of a Planet from the Ecliptic, either towards the North or South, by which means we come to say, a Planet has either Septentrionall or Meridionall Latitude, when either he recedes from the Ecliptic towards the North or South.
The location north or south in reference to the equator, which is designated at zero (0) degrees. Parallel lines that circle the globe both north and south of the equator. The poles are at 90 degrees North and South latitude.
Lines of latitude are imaginary lines that tell how far north or south a place is from the Equator. The lines measure the degrees north and south from the Equator. Zero degrees is the location of the Equator.
angle measured at the center of the earth from the equator to any point on the earth's surface. 0 degrees would be at the equator, while the North pole would be at 90 degrees latitude. Taos is around 36 degrees latitude. Latitude is used in determining what angle to tilt a solar array to, and for determining how long shadows will be.
The degree measure of an angle whose vertex is the center of the Earth and one side is a radius to the equator. Used to indicate the location of a place with reference (north or south) to the equator. See also longitude.
Imaginary lines that allow for the measurement of position north or south of the equator. Latitude is measured in degrees (one degree - 60 nautical miles, or 111 kilometres). The equator is at a latitude of 0° and the poles lie at latitudes of 90° north (North Pole) or 90° south (South Pole). Lines of latitude differ in length according to how far north and south they are.
a global standard coordinate used to identify a position on earth given in degrees, minutes and seconds, indicates the north/south position above/below the equator, positive is in the northern hemisphere and negative is in the southern hemisphere.
Latitude lines run east/west. The longest line of latitude is the equator, which circles the midsection of the planet. The latitude of the equator is 0 degrees. Latitude lines are parallel to each other, north and south of the equator. The North Pole is 90 degrees north latitude and the South Pole is 90 degrees south latitude. North America lies in between the equator and the North Pole.
The angular distance of a point on the earth's surface along a meridian north or south of the equator. The Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn are parallels of latitude approximately 23 1/2 degrees north and south of the equator respectively.
Angular distance in a great circle of reference reckoned from an accepted origin to the projection of any point on that circle. Latitude on the Earth's surface is measured on the meridian north and south of the Equator and is expressed in degrees.
The range of allowable exposure values of a film. While there is usually a single "correct" exposure that yields the full range of tonality from shadows to highlights, film does tolerate some degree of over- or under-exposure, and this can be taken into account when setting exposure.
The angular distance north or south from the Earthís equator, measured in degrees, minutes, and seconds. One degree equals 60 nautical miles. A combination of latitude and longitude can be used to locate any spot on the earthís surface.
One of the two coordinates (the other being longitude) used to locate a position at sea; marked in degrees north or south of the equator, from 0 degrees at the equator to 90 degress north or south at the poles; one degree of latitude = 60 minutes of latitude; as one minute equals a mile, a common saying at sea is "a minute's a mile". Latitude is comparable to the x-axis on a graph.
The first component of a spherical coordinate system used to record positions on the earth’s surface. Latitude indicates the angular distance north or south of the earth’s equator measured through 90 degrees. (See Longitude)
Latitude is the angular distance north or south from the equator to a particular location. The equator has a latitude of zero degrees. The north and south poles have a latitude of 90 degrees. The rest of the world is between zero and ninety degrees.
1. Angular distance, measured in degrees, north or south from the equator. 2. Surveying measure of the angular distance, as measured in degrees, north or south from a fixed point. 3. Freedom from narrow restrictions.
The range of thickness of material that can be recorded on the radiograph within the useful reading range of film density. A high contrast film has little latitude and conversely a low contrast film has great latitude.
The range of photographic exposure which will result in a satisfactory negative. It is measured by the ratio of the maximum exposure which will yield a satisfactory negative to the minimum exposure. The latitude of a film is greatest when used to photograph a subject with low contrast. The term is also applied to printing papers (see "characteristic curve").
In a photographic process, the range of exposure over which substantially correct reproduction is obtained. When the process is represented by an H & D curve, the latitude is the projection on the exposure axis of that part of the curve which approximates a straight line with-in the tolerance permitted for the purpose at hand.
Commonly "Exposure latitude" - The range of brightness, including shadow detail, that a film can record in a single image before the highlights wash out or the shadows become muddy. Fast films generally have greater exposure latitude than slow films. Knowing a film's latitude lets you know how much exposure can be varied and still produce an acceptable image.
How much variation an emulsion allows while still delivering acceptable exposures, i.e. how "forgiving" a film is to exposure error or deliberate under and over exposure. Also applied to the range of brightness, including shadow detail, that a film can record in a single image before the highlights are washed out or the shadows become muddy.
Latitude is part of the World Square complex bounded by George, Goulburn, Liverpool and Pitt Streets in Sydney, Australia. The building's official name is "Ernst & Young Tower at Latitude" and is located on the corner of George and Goulburn streets.
