One degree is 69.11 statute miles, corresponding to0.01147 degree (52.1 seconds) per mile.BUT ...This is true for latitude anywhere on Earth, but it's only true for longitudealong the equator.All meridians ("lines") of longitude meet and merge at the north and southpoles. So as you get farther from the equator, one degree of longitude marksless distance.For longitude anywhere on Earth . . .Distance for one degree = 69.11 miles times cosine(latitude) .Degrees per mile = 0.01447 divided by cosine(latitude) .

One degree of latitude, and one degree of longitude along the equator only, is equivalent to roughly 69.1 miles (111 km). One degree of latitude, and of longitude on the equator only, is also equal to about 60 nautical miles.

Each degree is divided into 60 minutes, and each minute is divided into 60 seconds. While the distance represented by a degree of longitude can vary with the latitude, each degree of latitude (north and south) is equal to 60 nautical miles, so one minute of latitude is equal to 1 nautical mile. (About 1.15 statute miles) One nautical mile is equal to 2026 yards, so one second of latitude is equal to 33.8 feet.
