**pdf**, 1.8MB) A geographical**coordinate****system**is a**coordinate****system**. This means that every place can be specified by three sets of three numbers, called**coordinates**.Latitude is given as an angle that ranges from –90° at the south pole to 90° at the north pole, with 0° at the Equator. Lines of constant latitude, or parallels, run east–west as circles parallel to the equator. Latitude and longitude are used together as a
