Question
If you know, is there such a location as 38 latitude -97 longitude?

Answer
Sort of.

Latitude can be from 0 to 90, but needs either a N or S designation to tell you which side of the equator it's on.

Longitude is from 0 to 180, and needs an E or W designation, to determine if it's East or West of the Prime Meridian (London).

In some cases, you can find a - or +, with + taking the place of N or E, and - meaning W or S.

The point you listed appears to be in NE Kansas.
