Gmt Time Zone Location

The world time zone map uses a repeating color scheme to designate the different standard time zones observed in each country. Most countries do not adjust their time zone observance and when they do it most likely involves small boundary changes or changes in the observance of daylight saving time. The world time zone map indicates the standard time zones actually observed. In theory time zones are based on the division of the world into twenty four time zones of 15 degrees longitude each. The time convention begins with Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) which is also commonly referred to as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) being located at the Greenwich meridian. This line runs through the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Algeria, Mali and Ghana in Africa. The Greenwich meridian time zone is 7 1/2 degrees east and 7 1/2 degrees west of zero degrees longitude. Time zones to the east of the Greenwich meridian are later and time zones to the west of the Greenwich meridian are earlier. To see more detail view our larger format world time zone map.

Going West from GMT, time zones are numbered A to M. East of GMT, military time zones are lettered N through Y. The first time zone west of UTC or GMT, is one hour ahead, and has letter A or Alpha. Time Zone A, just east of Z includes countries like Paris, Germany, Oslo and countries like Algeria, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia.

This world time zone map shows the division of the world into twenty four time zones of 15 degrees longitude each. However, if you compare this theoretical system with actual time usage throughout the world, you will see there are many variations in how countries actually observe time zones. The reasons for this vary but include commerce and transportation.

15 Degrees Longitude

One time zone is 15 degrees longitude and there are 24 of them. A full circle, 360 degrees, divided by 24 as the number of hours in a day results 15 degrees. The time difference between two time zones next to each other in the 24 hour system is one hour.
A few countries do not follow a time zone according to their physical location. They may have chosen another time zone that is more purposeful related to their current politics, business partners or just for the ease of use. One of the 'ease of use' examples is China which follows one time zone in a land area that crosses five time zones.


40 Time Zones

Altogether there are 40 time zones that are offsets from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) by a whole number of hours from UTC-12 to UTC+14 or which are offsets of 30 or 45 minutes. Some countries use daylight saving time (DST) during the summer months to move the first light hour from the morning to the afternoon. This method saves energy by reducing the need for artificial lighting and increases a possibility for outdoor activities in the afternoons since the sun sets an hour later.
