## Is easting and northing the same as longitude and latitude?

“Easting and northing” are the standard names for the x and y coordinates in any projected (i.e. planar) coordinate system. Additionally, “latitude and longitude” are the standard names for the coordinates in any unprojected (i.e. geographic) coordinate system.

**How do you write Northing and Easting coordinates?**

Locations in a projected coordinate system, like any cartesian coordinate system, are measured and reported as easting/northing or (x, y) pairs. The pair is usually represented conventionally with easting first, northing second.

### What are Northing and Easting coordinates?

The terms easting and northing are geographic Cartesian coordinates for a point. Easting refers to the eastward-measured distance (or the -coordinate), while northing refers to the northward-measured distance (or the -coordinate). The orthogonal coordinate pair are commonly measured in meters from a horizontal datum.

### How do you calculate northing and easting from bearing and distance?

**What is northing and easting line?**

A grid of squares helps the map-reader to locate a place. The vertical lines are called eastings. They are numbered – the numbers increase to the east. The horizontal lines are called northings as the numbers increase in an northerly direction.

**What is easting and northing in GIS?**

Easting is the eastward-measured distance (or the x-coordinate) and northing is the northward-measured distance (or the y-coordinate). Easting and northing coordinates are commonly measured in metres from the axes of some horizontal datum. However, other units (e.g., survey feet) are also used.
