## Is latitude the X or Y?

Even though geographic coordinates are angular units, ArcSDE stores and treats them as if they are planar. In this case, longitude values are considered the x-coordinate, while latitude values are the y-coordinate.

## How do you find the x and y coordinates of a line?

To find out the coordinates of a point in the coordinate system you do the opposite. Begin at the point and follow a vertical line either up or down to the x-axis. There is your x-coordinate. And then do the same but following a horizontal line to find the y-coordinate.

**What are the X and Y in slope-intercept form?**

The form of the question gives it to us very directly. We can use the slope-intercept form (y = mx + b). The x-intercept is found by setting y = 0, because that will give us the x-value at which the line crosses the x-axis.

**What is my latitude and longitude?**

Android: Open Google Maps; it will zoom to your approximate location. Press and hold on the screen to drop a pin marker. Click on the dropped pin; latitude and longitude will be displayed below the map.

### How do you find the x-intercept and y-intercept?

Finding x-intercepts and y-intercepts

- To determine the x-intercept, we set y equal to zero and solve for x. Similarly, to determine the y-intercept, we set x equal to zero and solve for y.
- To find the x-intercept, set y = 0 \displaystyle y=0 y=0.
- To find the y-intercept, set x = 0 \displaystyle x=0 x=0.

### How do you find the y-intercept?

When an equation is not in y = mx + b form, we can solve for the intercepts by plugging in 0 as needed and solving for the remaining variable. To find y-intercept: set x = 0 and solve for y. The point will be (0, y). To find x-intercept: set y = 0 and solve for x.

**What is latitude and longitude meaning?**

Both longitude and latitude are angles measured with the center of the earth as an origin. A longitude is an angle from the prime merdian, measured to the east (longitudes to the west are negative). Latitudes measure an angle up from the equator (latitudes to the south are negative). Figure 1.

**How do you write longitude and latitude?**

When writing latitude and longitude, write latitude first, followed by a comma, and then longitude. For example, the above lines of latitude and longitude would be written as “15°N, 30°E.”

#### What is X longitude and Y longitude?

Longitude changes value along the horizontal access, the X axis. Easy. X = Longitude, Y = Latitude. Now you will no longer be confused when calculating centroids or setting webmap coordinates.

#### What is the X and y coordinate system?

X and Y coordinate system with user specified origin. Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinate defines two dimensional, horizontal, positions. Zone numbers designate 6 degree longitudinal strips extending from 80 degrees South latitude to 84 degrees North latitude.

**What do the x axis and y axis measure?**

First, let’s review the Cartesian coordinate system. The X axis is the horizontal plane and the Y axis is the vertical plane. Two dimensional. Pretty simple. Now, let’s look at latitude and longitude. Latitude measures angular distance from the equator to a point north or south of the equator.

**What are the x axis and y axis of the Earth?**

The X axis is the horizontal plane and the Y axis is the vertical plane. Two dimensional. Pretty simple. Now, let’s look at latitude and longitude. Latitude measures angular distance from the equator to a point north or south of the equator. While longitude is an angular measure of east/west from the Prime Meridian. Now this is the important part.
