'lat/lon' - how we received our name
The company name lat/lon directly illustrates our field of activity. It signifies the two geographic coordinates, by means of which every location on the earth's surface can be precisely determined. The 'latitude' (shortened 'lat') means the angle between the center of the earth, the wanted location and the equator. The 'longitute' (shortened 'lon') means the angle between the center of the earth, the wanted location and the Prime Meridian.
The Brandenburg Gate has the coordinates (latitude/longitude) 52.5164 // 13.3777, the Eiffel Tower the coordinates 48.8581802 // 2.2943143, the Empire State Building in New York can be found at 40.7487158 // 73.9861709 and the Godesburg at 50.68509 // 7.150576.
