  45th parallel north - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The parallel 45° north is an imaginary circle of latitude that is 45 degrees north of the Earth's equatorial plane.
The 45th parallel north is often called the halfway point between the Equator and the North Pole, but the true halfway point is actually 16.2 kilometers (10.1 miles) north of the 45th parallel because the Earth is oblate, that is, it bulges at the equator and is flattened at the poles.
In North America, the 45th parallel roughly marks the border between the United States and Canada between the St.

But as we rode along the parallel, we concluded that cartography, that curious blend of art and science, might just as well be the result of wishful thinking.
Situated on Passamaquoddy Bay in the south eastern section of Washington County, the 45th parallel of north latitude passes right through the town.

 Log Cabin Chronicles Vermont-Quebec Borderlines pages
From the beginning, American and Canadian officials squabbled over whose reading of the 45th was more accurate; because of the rudimentary nature of equipment and surveying techniques in early days, data often varied.
In 1796, the Vermont General Assembly claimed that the 45th parallel was too far south - in other words, parts of Quebec should be in the USA.
To settle the dispute, the two countries appealed to the King of Netherlands, who in 1831 pronounced that the 45th parallel should be moved to a new position - virtually in the middle of the two lines claimed by each country.

 Circle of latitude - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
On the Earth, a circle of latitude or parallel is an imaginary east-west circle that connects all locations with a given latitude.
Those parallels closer to the poles are smaller than those at or near the Equator.
