Latitude

Latitude[pos]
gives the latitude in degrees of a geographic position specified by pos.
Latitude[pos, datum]
gives the latitude referred to the specified geodetic datum.
  • Latitude returns a value in the range -90 to +90.
  • Latitude gives the geodetic latitude; GeodesyData gives conversions to other forms of latitude.
  • If no datum is given, Latitude assumes positions to refer to the International Terrestrial Reference Frame 2000.
