Northernmost Point by Country 2024

- Countries often have multiple northernmost points. The United States, for instance, has one northernmost point for the 48 contiguous states, and a second for when Alaska is included. In such cases, additional northernmost points are listed in a separate column.
- The dividing line between north and south is a horizontal ring around the Earth known as the equator.
- Latitudes are written similarly to the hours/minutes/seconds system used by time, with the largest unit of measure listed first, followed by smaller gradations.
- The main unit of measure in latitude is the degree (°). Starting at the equator (0°) and moving northward, the degrees count up from 1° N to 179° N, reaching 180° at the North Pole. If moving southward, the count is a mirror image, from 1° S to 180° S at the South Pole.
- Because the scale reverses count at the equator, higher N values are more northward than lower N values, but lower S values are more northward than high S values.
- Additional latitudes of interest include the Tropic of Capricorn at 23°26′21″S, the equator at 00°00′00″, the Tropic of Cancer at 23°26′21″N, and the Arctic Circle at 66°33′39″N.
