Location (geography)

In geography, location is a position or point in physical space that something occupies on Earths' surface. A real location can often be designated using a specific pairing of latitude and longitude, a Cartesian coordinate grid (e.g., State Plane Coordinate System), a spherical coordinate system, or an ellipsoid-based system (e.g., World Geodetic System).

A location may be described as either absolute location, meaning the exact location of an object, or relative location, meaning the location of one object relative to another and another or in a general area. there are two types of location, relative & absolute. Relative deals with the relative spot of something on Earth. Absolute deals with the exact spot of something on Earth
