There were numerous times while traveling the world when I thought: “I wonder how our current latitude compares to cities back in the U.S.” Or I’d be curious about whether Barcelona is further north than Denver, for example. Can you believe it is? That means all our traveling around Europe never took us further south than say, Laramie, WY!
Anyway, towards the end of our trip I finally got around to creating a basic web page that used Google Maps to help visualize the difference in latitude between places around the globe. I recently added a little more polish and functionality to that page and thought I’d include it here for future reference.
