# Coordinates Geolocalization

## Locate Coordinates on a Map

### What is a geographic coordinate? (Definition)

A geographic coordinate is a set of 2 values, latitude and longitude, used to locate a position on the Earth (geolocation/geolocalization).

Latitude indicates the position of a point north or south of the equator.

Longitude indicates the position of a point east or west of the Greenwich meridian.

### How to locate Coordinates on a map?

dCode uses a map and locates GPS coordinates with their latitude and longitude.

Example: 45.678, -5.4321 will be positionned to latitude +45.678 and longitude -5.4321.

### How to connect dots on a map?

With the connect the dots option, dCode proposes to draw a line between the points/GPS coordinate.

Sometimes the dots can form a pattern, a path or a loop (the order of the points is important in this case).

### What is a GPS coordinate?

GPS (Global Positioning System) is a satellite navigation system that makes it possible to determine the exact position of an object or a person anywhere on Earth using signals received from satellites.

Coordinates are a set of 2 values/numbers: a latitude and a longitude.

Elevation on Earth is not indicated in a GPS point

### What is the latitude?

The latitude is the angle of the point on the North-South axis, starting from 0° to the equator and going from -90° to the south pole and +90° to the north pole.

### What is the longitude?

Longitude is the angle of the point on the West-East axis, starting from 0° on the GreenWich meridian and ranging from -180° west to +180° east.
