The word coordinate derives from the Latin ordinare, which means to order or arrange. Coordinates are sets that locate points in space. These sets are usually numbers grouped in tuples, one tuple for each point. Because spaces can be defined as sets of geometric objects plus axioms defining their behavior, coordinates can be thought of more generally as schemes for mapping elements of sets to geometric objects.
