Latitude and Longitude

Claudius Ptolemaeus was a geographer, mathematician and astronomer who in about 150 AD published a scientific treatise titled Geographia, a compilation of geographical coordinates of the world known to the Roman Empire at the time. Latitude was measured from the equator, as it is today. He put the meridian of 0° longitude at the most western land he knew, the “Blessed Islands” (Canary Islands), 16° west of today’s Greenwich Meridian.
