Lines of longitude are imaginary circles that go round the whole Earth in a north-south direction (passing through both poles). They are measured up to 180 degrees because there are 360 degrees in a circle - the circle in this case being the circumference of the Earth. Half of 360 being 180, lines of longitude are measured from 1 to 180 degrees to the EAST of the Greenwich Meridian (0 degrees of longitude), and 1 to 180 degrees WEST of the Greenwich Meridian, meeting round the other side of the Earth at the International Date Line (180 degrees of longitude).
