Today's word/expression is...

2004年08月16日(月) 緯度、経度、海抜

Please put them into English!
These words are a little confusing for me.
よく私が混同してしまうのは、緯度と海抜です。

 ^淌戞   latitude
◆〃佚     longitude
 海抜(標高、高度) altitude


(用例)

 The army must cease military operations aboub 36 degrees latitude north. (データベース)
 The aircraft had reached its cruising altitude of about 39,000 feet.(COB)

´△箸皸貊錣忙箸錣譴訃豺
  The ship is at latitude thirty degrees twenty minutes north,
and longitude thirty degrees ten minutes west.(英和活)


ちなみに、latitudeには、「自由(裁量)」という意味もあります。

(例) He would be given every latitude in forming a new government. (COB)
