How many latitudes are there in total?

Everything north of the equator is known as the Northern Hemisphere and everything south of the equator is known as the Southern Hemisphere. Lines of latitude are called parallels and in total there are 180 degrees of latitude. The distance between each degree of latitude is about 69 miles (110 kilometers).

Is Latitude horizontal?

Latitude and Longitude lines are a grid map system too. But instead of being straight lines on a flat surface, Lat/Long lines encircle the Earth, either as horizontal circles or vertical half circles. Horizontal mapping lines on Earth are lines of latitude.
