Hi ElizabethHamm,

Absolute Location describes an object's location, relative to Earth. For instance, latitude and longitude coordinates are an example of Absolute Location.

Relative location is more general and can be used relative to the surroundings of the object. You could say something like, "The post office is South of the diner on main street".

The links below should explain things a lot clearer than me! I hope this helped!

Absolute location, however, is a term with little real meaning, since any location must be expressed relative to something else. For example, longitude is the number of degrees east or west of the Prime Meridian, a line arbitrarily chosen to pass through Greenwich, London.
