Co-ordinates - Grid Lines
To help us find places on a map cartographers (mapmakers) sometimes draw lines over the map to help us locate places more quickly. These lines are given labels, which we call co-ordinates. In this map each column is given a letter and each row is given a number.
If we look at the grid below we can say that Dublin is located in square J6.
