The angle in degrees between the Greenwich Meridian where it crosses the Equator, the centre of the Earth and another point on the Equator is called the longitude. It is

called west longitude if it's west of the Greenwich Meridian and east longitude if it's east of the Greenwich Meridian. All points on the Earth's surface having the same longitude lie on a great circle running through both poles and is known as a meridian of longitude.
