Is there a standard name for a latitude/longitude pair? I ask because a lot of mapping APIs (e.g., Google Maps, Mapbox, MapQuest) represent them using data structures named
LatLng. That naming is very to-the-point but it just seems lazy.
Meanwhile, other libraries (e.g., OSM, Proj.4, JTS, ArcGIS, PostGIS, Apple Maps) refer to them as "coordinates" or "points." Is there one particular term that is more accurate than the rest for describing a point on the globe that is created from/represented by a latitude and longitude?
