    Drawing lines of latitude on a sphere

    Using OpenGL, can I make a sphere, possibly texture it, and then draw lines of latitude on it?

    Of course. There are many ways to do it. I generated the earth below using OpenGL. It is a white sphere (gluSphere) with an earth map texture on it. The lat-lon lines are in the texture.



    Am I doing your homework for you?
