Latitude and Longitude

How can a gazetteer help me find latitude and longitude?

Latitude lines run horizontally around the globe, while longitude lines run from north to south.

A gazetteer is an index that lists the latitude and longitude of places within a specific region or across the entire world. Many atlases include a gazetteer, and some are published separately.
