coordinates

numbers specifying the position of an object or body. Cartesian coordinates are specified on axes that are orthogonal (at right angles) to each other (usually X, Y and Z or i, j and k). polar coordinates are specified by an angle (degrees) and a distance from a fixed point.

coordinates

of a point on a graph or grid map, the points on the horizontal and vertical axes which identify the location of the point on the graph/map.
