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