latitude and longitude

just a quick reference, since i looked these things up due to some unknown ip addresses on our server at work.
latitude is east west location, ranging from 180°W to 180°E (which in fact are the same point =): between russia and alaska
0° latitude is in london

longitude is north south location and has the same range values as latitude 180N to 180S
0° longitude is obviously the equator
