What cities are near the 45th parallel?

Only four states lie entirely north of the 45th parallel: Alaska, Washington, Montana (almost), and North Dakota. The biggest cities are Seattle and Portland. The parallel divides the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.

Where is 45 degrees south latitude?

Latitude measures the location of places north or south in relationship to the equator, which is at zero degrees. A place halfway between the equator (0 degrees) and the north pole (90 degrees) is at 45 degrees north latitude; a place between the equator and the south pole is at 45 degrees south latitude.

Where does the 45th parallel cross Oregon?

North Powder

Is the Center of the Earth in Wisconsin?

If you’re looking for the center of the world, well. It’s in Wisconsin. The 45×90 points, as they’re called, are the four points on Earth which are halfway between the geographical poles, the equator, the Prime Meridian, and the 180th meridian.

Which ocean is 15 degrees south and is found on the Prime Meridian?

Why there are 180 latitudes and 360 longitudes?

A circle is divided into 4 quarters of 90 degrees each. If you stood above the earth and looked down on the north pole from above, you would see the complete circle of the equator. So longitude goes from zero to 360 degrees. Latitude lines are parallel to the equator which has latitude = zero degrees.

Why there are no latitudes higher than 90 N and 90 S?

Latitude is the angular distance from the plane of the Equator. Latitude only has to cover 180 degrees, from the North Pole to the South Pole. All circles make a maximum angle of 900 from the plane of the Equator. Therefore the maximum, latitude is 900 N in the Northern hemisphere and 900 S in the Southern Hemisphere.

Do longitude lines go up to 180 degrees?

The distance around the Earth measures 360 degrees. The meridian that runs through Greenwich, England, is internationally accepted as the line of 0 degrees longitude, or prime meridian. The antimeridian is halfway around the world, at 180 degrees. A degree of longitude is about 111 kilometers (69 miles) at its widest.
