latitude

The climates cycle between equatorial and arctic in the N-S direction, with the interval between cycles set by the options you selected at world gen (defaults to 50 thousand blocks, IIRC, so a looooong way). So if you spawn in a temperate region (the default) and head south, it will get warmer, then colder, then warmer again, then colder again, etc, until you hit the world border. Starting from a temperate spawn on standard settings, expect to walk for a couple of real-world hours before you hit an equatorial region.

No, x=0 is the world spawn.

It usually ends up around 47.5° north in worlds with standard settings (i.e. using the "temperate" starting climate setting).

You can find out your current latitude by entering /wgen pos latitude into the chat window.

Watched a streamer journey to world border, took him something like 50 IRL hours to make the journey.  The polar regions are.... interesting.

Equator would be basically half your interpolation. For example for us on AuraFury world was created in 1.13 in august 2020 and its 50k. Now in 1.14 or 1.15+ they switched pole-interpolation to 100k.

We begin to enter the south hemisphere at 25k south of world spawn 0,x,0 until 50k south then you go back into a north hemisphere. So north hemisphere is technically 0,x,-25k...if you go further north...then suddenly your in south hemisphere again.

when you do /wgen pos climate it also tells your which hemisphere your on (only avail for admins) since there's a / in front

Basically if you have a 1 mill by 1 mill world. at -500k north and 500k south are the world borders(not exactly but close) and the N and South hemisphere repeat themselves over and over. When your in south hemisphere seasons are inverse from north hemisphere.

Small distinction: commands with a slash are not admin commands but rather server side commands. Many server side commands require admin permissions, but not all of them do. For example, /whenwillitstopraining is available to all players.

I'm not sure about the /wgen pos commands, but chances are, if it only prints info it might not require elevated permissions.
