Named locations:

These are the current longitudes of the magnetic poles, as determined by GeomagneticModelData:

Properties & Relations  (2)

Take a GeoPosition object:

LatitudeLongitude returns the coordinates of that location as a pair of Quantity objects:

The "LatitudeLongitude" property of GeoPosition objects returns a numeric result in degrees:

The presence of elevation or temporal data does not affect the values of latitude and longitude:
