Is latitude the up and down lines on a map?Or the side to side lines?
Thanks

Wouldn't it depend on how you hung your map? If N is up, then latitudes are the lines parallel to the equator..horizontal.

Latitudes are the westtoeast lines.
One way to remember the difference is that longitude goes the long way  up and down. 
Thanks!

You're welcome.
