Dear Rohit

How to compute Latitude and Longitude of planets viz Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn etc?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Hello Prashant,

Geographic Coordinate System of other planets like Mars, Jupiter Etc is mapped as same as Earth. Changes are primarily in datums, spheroids, prime meridians.

Kindly go through below links for comparison
