Bounds of Latitude and Longitude: Exploring the Extremes in Earth Science and GPS

Maximum and minimum integer numbers of latitude and longitude Latitude and longitude are basic geographic coordinates used to locate points on the Earth’s surface. Latitude measures the distance north or south of the equator, while longitude measures the distance east or west of the prime meridian. These coordinates are important in several fields, including GPS

Assessing the Impact of Earth’s Obliquity and Precession on GPS-Based Measurements of Tectonic Movements

Global Positioning System (GPS) technology has revolutionized the way we measure tectonic movement. It is a powerful tool that allows us to detect even the smallest movements of the Earth’s crust with high accuracy. However, several factors can affect the accuracy of GPS-based measurements, including changes in the Earth’s obliquity and precession. In this article,
