DEFINITION

What are Coordinates?

Coordinates are linear and/or angular quantities that designate the position of a point in relation to a given reference frame. In a two-dimensional plane, x and y are commonly used to designate coordinates of a point. Latitude and longitude are used together to specify the coordinates of a precise location on the Earth. GIS and GPS are useful tools for finding the longitude/latitude coordinates of locations on the Earth.
