Latitude of a plant is one of the parameter in determining C-factor and Y-factor of Tank normal inbreathing and outbreathing as discussed in "Tank Normal Venting Rate Estimation Using Latest Method As in API Std 2000". Simple method to find latitude is using Google Map.
Lately Google Map has introduced new features. You can view the Latitude and Longitude directly and immediately as you move you mouse along the Google Map. Following are the steps to configure it.
Step 1 : Goes to Google map (http://maps.google.com/)
Step 2 : Click "New!" at top right and find . (See below image). Or you can click http://maps.google.com/maps?ftr=0.
Step 3 : Scroll down and find "LatLng Tooltip" and Click "Enable"
Step 4 : Click Save Changes at the bottom of page. Now configuration is done.
Try to find "Ras Laffan, Qatar" again in Google Map. You will get the latitude and longitude immediately from the Google Map. You may also move the mouse and see the effect of latitude and longitude changes...
Simple ? Let us know if you have even better method...
