    Is there a link, for example, between the rise of video works and the global availability of digital media? How can museums connect with new audiences through different practices, different scholarships, and different interpretive strategies that grow out of the sedimentation of their own history? A stable surface to work from, known coordinates to refer to, a sheltered environment for the unstable chronometers of the day, and the ability to repeat determinations over time made for great accuracy. Amanda Briney Updated January 20, Latitude is the angular distance of any point on Earth measured north or south of the equator in degrees, minutes and seconds.

    As Dava Sobel explains, "To know one's longitude at sea, one needs to know what time it is aboard ship and also the time at the home port or another place of known longitude—at that very same moment. Are new meanings being produced and original assumptions lost over the journey? Climates in this zone are affected by both warm, tropical air moving towards the poles and cold, polar air moving towards the equator. The most sunlight is received at the equator of our planet, making this area very warm. Enter the coordinates into the search bar then press the Enter key or the Search icon.

    This is a direct result of the unequal distribution of solar insolation between the equator and the rest of the Earth. Google Maps will indicate the location of the entered coordinates with a red pin. These two parallels are significant because they receive direct sun on the two solstices. Originally a system used only by the military, the GPS system became available for use by citizens almost 30 years ago. Their work is determinedly individualized, yet provocatively informed by its cultural context.
