Geographic_coordinate_system =

A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system that enables every location on Earth to be specified by a set of numbers, letters or symbols.[note 1] The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents a vertical position and two or three of the numbers represent a horizontal position; alternatively, a geographic position may be expressed in a combined three-dimensional Cartesian vector.
A common choice of coordinates is latitude, longitude and elevation.[1]
To specify a location on a plane requires a map projection.[2]
