It also plays a role in navigation and helps in understanding the Earth's geography and weather patterns.

Title

• B.

Distance calculator

• C.

Key

D. Map scale
Explanation
The map scale can help determine the approximate distance between two locations. The map scale provides a ratio that represents the relationship between the distances on the map and the actual distances on the ground. By using the scale, one can measure the distance between two points on the map and estimate the corresponding distance in real life. This is useful for planning routes, calculating travel times, and understanding the relative distances between different locations on a map.

Explanation
Latitude is the measure of how far north or south a place is from the Equator. It is represented by lines that run horizontally on a map or globe, with the Equator being at 0 degrees latitude. The latitude values range from 0 degrees at the Equator to 90 degrees at the North and South Poles. Therefore, latitude is the correct answer to the question. Longitude, on the other hand, measures how far east or west a place is from the Prime Meridian.
