Latitude

Latitude is defined as the angle in degrees between the Equator, the centre of the Earth and a point on the Earth's surface. If the point is between the Equator and the North Pole, it's called north latitude and if between the Equator and the South Pole, it's called south latitude. A circle can be drawn through all points of the same latitude, this circle being a small circle as its circumference is less than the Earth's, and it is parallel to the Equator. There are an infinite number of points on the Earth's surface with the same latitude, so latitude by itself cannot define our address.
