## How to convert degrees of latitude to miles?

Feb 10, 2022 · Each degree of latitude is approximately 69 miles (111 kilometers) apart. The range varies (due to the earth’s slightly ellipsoid shape) from 68.703 miles (110.567 km) at the equator to 69.407 (111.699 km) at the poles. This is convenient because each minute (1/60th of a degree) is approximately one nautical mile.

## How many latitude is 1km?

Near the equator, 1km is going to equal roughly 0.008 degrees (1 km / 40,000 km * 360 degrees) of latitude and longitude, but near the poles, 1km is going to equal roughly 0.008 degrees latitude, but could be many many degrees longitude.Dec 2, 2021

## How many meters are in a degree of latitude?

111 metersSo, for latitude the number of degrees from the pole to the equator is 90∘, and the number of meters is 10 million (or 10,000 kilometers). That means 1∘ of latitude is 10,000/90=111 kilometers, and 0.001∘=0.111 kilometers or 111 meters, essentially an American football field plus both endzones.Nov 4, 2015
