Also Called as Geo-quadrant.

Ravi said: (Oct 20, 2011)  
What about latitude and longitude?

Raj said: (Nov 2, 2011)  
Latitude are the horizontal line and longitude are the vertical lines.

Pramod Kumar said: (Jan 9, 2012)  
Gird lines:.

Lines running parallel to and right angles to a North and South line through approximately the centre of the area covered by the Gird system.

Varsha said: (Jan 12, 2012)  
The line are neither only latitudes nor longitudes but both so option 'C' is correct as they are called geographic grid lines.

Rimu said: (Mar 18, 2012)  
The option c is correct beacause the geograpic grid is diference between two country.

Inder said: (Apr 29, 2013)  
Grid made by latitude and longitude is called Graticule.

Sabyasachi said: (Aug 11, 2013)  
The latitudes and longitudes intersect each other at a right angle and form a network. This network is called a grid.

Serge Passi said: (Sep 2, 2013)  
Grid or grids are simply intersections of longitudes and latitudes from which world zonal time (s) are determine.

Lone(Amu) said: (Oct 24, 2013)  
A geographic grid is a man-made system used to accurately measure the position of any place on the surface of the Earth. The grid marks the location of a place by use of the latitude and the longitude.

Mukund said: (Dec 3, 2013)  
A geographical grid are imaginary lines which make longitudes and latitudes.

Sreenidhi said: (Dec 16, 2013)  
What does grid lines mean?

Sanipal said: (Dec 22, 2013)  
It contain vertical and longitude lines.

Sanipal said: (Dec 22, 2013)  
It contain vertical and longitude lines.

Oluoch Ondiko said: (Jan 17, 2014)  
Grid are imaginary lines that cross N to S and E to W along the global.

Anand said: (Jan 24, 2014)  
By these geographical grids we can decide the position of any country or place. These are imaginary lines on globe.

Raphael said: (Apr 14, 2014)  
Geographical grids I do agree because it is general thus if we say latitudes all alone, they are not intersecting as well as the longitudes.

Elavarassi said: (Apr 17, 2014)  
Latitude and longitude are together are called as geographical lines I think so the same.

Subham said: (Jun 8, 2014)  
Latitude and longitude are together are called as geographical lines.

Nazneen said: (Jul 2, 2014)  
Latitude and longitude are together called geographical lines.

Biratu Bobo said: (Jul 23, 2014)  
Both latitude and longitude are joined on the globe. The place where these lines joined is called GRID!

Nilu said: (Sep 23, 2014)  
Latitudes and longitudes are imaginary lines are drawn around the world. Latitude are the horizontal line and longitude are the vertical lines.

Main latitude is equator. Main longitude is Greenwich line.

Dineesha said: (Oct 4, 2014)  
A series of vertical lines from north pole to south pole and horizontal lines parallel to equator, forming a complete network called "earth's grid. ".

With the help of grid, we can locate places and learn much about them-how hot or cold it would be there, in which direction we should go to reach it and what time it would be there any moment.

Kiran Kumar said: (Nov 13, 2014)  
Thanks Varsha you cleared the doubt between longitudinal and latitude.

Steve said: (Jan 21, 2015)  
Technically - Longitudinal lines intersect at the poles. So the question should be reworded.

Rohit said: (Mar 3, 2015)  
I think geographical grid is correct because at this point longitude and latitude. Both intersect.

Vedant said: (Apr 25, 2015)  
The intersection of latitudes and longitude pinpoint any location on the earth. These crises crossing lines make a framework which is known as geographical grid.

Jagruthi said: (Jun 23, 2015)  
These lines are imaginary lines.

Umar Yakubu said: (Aug 20, 2015)  
The raster grip cell on the map, are in relation with the victor of the map, in globes, from north to south when drawn representation of the map intersection line and interpolation.

Anju said: (Mar 8, 2017)  
The answer is geographical grid as it varies from a intersecting lines.

Humayun said: (Mar 12, 2017)  
What about maps and globes?

Vijilanand said: (May 8, 2017)  
The grids are used in AutoCAD also.
