Locating a place on the globe using the earth's grid   - Teachoo.png

  • The network of parallels and meridians on the globe is called the earth’s grid or the geographic grid
  • It helps us to locate any place on the earth with its position in the north-south direction ( latitude ) and in the east-west direction ( longitude )
  • To find the exact location of a place, we need to know its latitude and longitude, which are written as angular coordinates.
