What are the horizontal lines called?

A horizontal line is a straight line that is drawn from left to right or right to left and it is parallel to the x-axis in the coordinate plane. In other words, a straight line that has an intercept only on the y-axis, not on the x-axis is called a horizontal line.

### What is the imaginary horizontal line of the Earth called the vertical?

We can locate a place on the globe by drawing vertical and horizontal lines. These lines are imaginary. The horizontal line is called Latitude and the vertical line is called Longitude.

What is the horizontal line in the middle of the earth?

The equator has a measurement of 0-degree latitude. It runs through the middle of the Earth. The equator is equidistant from the North and South poles. Thus, the equator separates the northern and southern hemispheres.

What two lines meet at the North Pole?

180° E and 180° W are the same longitude line. As you go further north or south of the equator, the distance between the two lines of longitude becomes smaller, because all longitude lines intersect at the poles.

Vertical describes something that rises straight up from a horizontal line or plane. The terms vertical and horizontal often describe directions: a vertical line goes up and down, and a horizontal line goes across. You can remember which direction is vertical by the letter, “v,” which points down.
