Atlas and maps:
Atlas topics General overview Latitude and longitude Outline maps World maps

Latitude and longitude: theoretical background
Aviation Formulary Great Circle Navigation Formulae, Distance between points, Course between points, Latitude of point on GC, Lat/lon given radial and distance, Intersection of two radials, Clairaut's formula, GC crossing parallel, Intermediate points on a great circle, Cross track error and along track distance, Points a known distance from a great circle, Distance to the horizon
Calculating Distances Between Two Points ways to calculate the distance between two points on the earth's surface, defined by their latitude and longitude
Coordinate Systems Overview description of basic coordinate systems, a description of the shape of the Earth
Geocoding geocoding is the process of assigning geographic coordinates (e.g. latitude-longitude) to street addresses, as well as other points and features
Latitude and longitude halfway between the North Pole and the South Pole is an imaginary line, the equator. The equator goes around the middle of Earth like a belt. It divides our planet into the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern Hemisphere. A number of imaginary lines are drawn around the globe parallel to the equator. These are called parallels of latitude. Another set of imaginary lines helps us measure distance east and west. These are lines of longitude. Each line of longitude runs from the North Pole to the South Pole. These lines are also called meridians
Latitude and longitude latitude and longitude are spherical coordinates on the surface of the earth. Latitude is measured North or South of the Equator, resulting in a range of -90 (S pole) to +90 (N pole) degrees. Longitude is measured East or West of Greenwich
Latitude and longitude
latitude and longitude Latitude and longitude are angles that uniquely define points on a sphere
Latitude and longitude any location on Earth is described by two numbers--its latitude and its longitude. If a pilot or a ship's captain wants to specify position on a map, these are the "coordinates" they would use
Latitude and longitude defined, part of Maptools MapTools provides GPS users with the tools and knowledge to fully utilize geographic coordinates. MapTools produces grids, corner rulers, roamers, and rulers to assist with plotting or measuring positions on many different scales of maps
