This is due to the difference between a measurement in degree and a measurement in meters (nothing that you can do about that) and maybe to the projection of the map (all projections induce distortions of the reality, your choice of a projection will depend on what you try to do).
If you assume that the Earth is a sphere, one degree along NS direction will follow a meridian and its size will be 1/360 of a meridian. All meridians have the same length, so you will always have the same distance. However, if you look along WE direction, you are on a parallel, and the size of the parallels decreases when you move towards the poles (size of parallel = size of equator * cosinus(latitude of the parallel). )
So if you have a 1/2 ratio, you are probably somewhere near the + or - 60° of latitude. It is correct that the same angular values of latitude and longitude are not the same euclidian distances on the surface of the Earth if you are not on the equator. I can also guess that your coordinates are truncated at the sixth decimal. This precision is OK for most applications, but if you have a professionnal differential GNSS receiver, then you original precision was degraded by the rounding, and you loose more precision by rounding latitude values than by rounding longitude values.
If you want a square of degrees to look like a square, you can use "Plate carre" projection, but everything else will be distorted. Local projection usually provide the best compromise with minimum distortions of the "reality" (but representing a part of o sphere on a flat screen or piece of paper always create some distortions, just choose those that is the least ennoying to you.)
Quick steps to select a projection:
1) if you work on a "small" area (vs global) use a local coordinate system. For larger regions: cylindrical projections near equator, conical projections at mid-latitude and azimuthal projections around the poles)
2) Select the most important feature for your work, most of the time one of the following A) keep the shape of the object (preserving local angles) => conformal projection B) measuring areas => equal-area projection. It is not possible to combine these true properties on a flat surface.
3) For specific uses, other properties include equidistance (for a given set of lines on the map) or loxodrome representation as straight lines (useful for navigation)
Plate carrée projection is equidistant in the NS direction, but it is neither conformal nor equal-area. Therefore I do not recommend it, except for simplicity.
