Degrees of longitude are uniform in length.

1 degree (Longitude) = 69.69 miles*Cos(Ө)(latitude)

however the length of a degree of latitude depends on were you are on the planet. A degree of latitude at the equator is notable longer than, for example, a degree of latitude at the latitude of Toronto, Canada.
