Latitude represents the horizontal position in a geographic system. It is rendered by lines running parallel to the equator. Its counterpart is longitude, which one finds shown as the vertical lines on the same maps.



Every country’s culture is affected by its latitude and the climate that it creates. How one dresses, drives a car, hunts, eats and sleeps are all influenced by the geographic position at which that person’s habitat lies.
