Lines of Latitude, Longitude, & Hemispheres Geography is filled with imaginary lines….

Imaginary Lines ►Geographers divide the Earth into lines of latitude and longitude

Imaginary Lines ►Geographers divide the Earth into lines of latitude and longitude

Latitude ► Lines of Latitude run from east to west ► Also called Parallels

Latitude ► Lines of Latitude run from east to west ► Also called Parallels b/c they will never intersect (touch) Latitude

►The Equator is 0 degree latitude ►Is located halfway between the North and South

►The Equator is 0 degree latitude ►Is located halfway between the North and South Poles ►Divides the Earth into the Northern and Southern Hemispheres Equator

Measurement of Latitude ► Lines of latitude are always measured in degrees north or
