On Earth in which exact location is the city of Riga to the equator and the Greenwich meridian? If you do not know **what are the coordinates of Riga** with respect to the equator then here you will find what you need. The latitude and longitude are two fundamental coordinates to position anywhere on the earth's surface. Also the location of a human being can be traced precisely through the use of these two coordinates that are measured in degrees and fractions of a degree. But the city of Riga where he is exactly where on the globe, in which the european region? Before giving the exact latitude and longitude of the city of Riga, we give a precise definition of these two very important coordinates and they are based on satellite systems today such as GPS included in smartphones and tablets. After the two values found the Google map with a satellite representation of the city.

**Latitude: **in geography represents a coordinate that serves to determine the position of a point on the Earth's surface, that is, the angular distance of a point from the equator. This coordinate is measured in degrees and fractions of a degree along the arc of the meridian passing precisely for that point.

**Longitude: **in geography it is a coordinate that is used to determine the position of a point on the earth's surface, that is the angular distance of a point from the Greenwich meridian. This coordinate is measured in degrees and fractions of a degree along the arc of the meridian passing precisely for that point.
