Longitude

Longitude[pos]
gives the longitude in degrees of a geographic position specified by pos.
Longitude[pos, datum]
gives the longitude referred to the specified geodetic datum.
  • Longitude returns a value in the range from -180 to +360.
  • Longitudes are taken to be positive to the east.
  • If no datum is given, Longitude assumes positions to refer to the International Terrestrial Reference Frame 2000.
