Methodological note

Methodological aspects

La posició geogràfica s'associa a una localització a la Terra. En conèixer la posició geogràfica d'una ciutat, per exemple, és possible ubicar-la en un mapa i saber on queda.

Per a determinar la posició geogràfica, es fan servir dos eixos de coordenades. D'una banda, es mesura la latitud del punto en qüestió (a través de línies conegudes como paral·lels) i, per l'altra, la longitud (les línies són els meridians). A partir d'aquest sistema de coordenades, es pot situar qualsevol punt en la superfície terrestre.

Als punts que es troben al nord de l'equador se'ls identifica com a N (per Nord), mentre que els que es situen al sud d'aquesta línia es nomenen com S (Sud). Cal destacar que els graus de la latitud van del 0 al 90, estant l'equador en latitud 0°. La longitud 0°, per la seva banda, és el meridià de Greenwich, i els punts es divideixen segons estiguin a l'Oest o l'Est.

Current Territorial Distribution

At present, Catalonia is divided into 41 counties, 1 singular territorial entity (Aran) and 8 areas of the Territorial Plan, according to the latest territorial changes, which affect the areas of El Penedès and the Central Counties, Aran and El Moianès.
