What is a Timezone?

Timezones Icon
  • Different parts of the world experience different times of sunrise and sunset due to earth's rotation around itself
  • Timezones were created to standardize these differences and make it easier to convert time between different countries and regions
  • There are 24 timezones. Each timezone represents an hour.
  • The timezones were created along the longitudinal lines each 15o from each other. Longitudes are imaginary vertical lines running from north pole to south pole. The one at zero degrees or the reference line is the Prime Meridian or Greenwich mean.
  • All the countries/regions falling within the same timezone experience the same time with minor variations. Each timezone differs from the neighbouring one by +/- 1 hour
  • The prime meridian, which passes through Greenwich, England, is used as the reference point for UTC. UTC is Universal Time Coordinated. Time zones to the east of the prime meridian are ahead of UTC whereas time zones to the west of the prime meridian are behind UTC.
  • For example, the time zone in New York City, USA is Eastern Time (ET), which is UTC-5. This means that New York City is 5 hours behind UTC. Japan is UTC+9 which is 9 hours ahead of UTC
The 24 time zones in the world are:
  • Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)
  • UTC+1
  • UTC+2
  • UTC+3

Is UTC same as GMT?

boundaries Icon
  • No, they represent two different things.
  • UTC or Coordinated Universal Time is a Time standard based on which timezones are configured as +/- UTC.
  • GMT stands for Greenwich Mean time. It is a timezone. UTC is a standard of time.
  • GMT is UTC 0. GMT is the timezone of those countries lying around the Prime meridian and used as the base timezone. In UTC standard, Greenwich is taken as the reference point. This is the reason UTC and GMT are used interchangeably.
  • The countries that fall under GMT timezone are Gambia, Ghana, Greenland, Ireland, Mali, Senegal, United Kingdom, Togo, Liberia, Iceland, Sierra Leone, Guinea.
