Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones - Coordinates in Space?
32 mins 47 secs
When Obi tries to find a missing Kamino system in the archives, it explains where it should be to the attendant. Pointing the a screen he says:
"According to my information, it should appear in this quadrant here... Just south of the Rishi Maze"
No I wonder how he could use "south" direction in space...
I know there are so many scientifically silly occurences in all the saga, but this should not appear - since it's something we, Earth people, can use only for flat map coordinates. The guys who live in and use 3d space, they should be accustoemd to 3d coordinate system.

Such a designation is not foreign at all. It is common to refer to "Galactic North" or "Galactic South."

I think that the south reference is just used to point him in the right area. It's being used to say below said quadrant.

Space coordinates use an X,Y,Z system to represent 3 dimensions. It is not hard to understand that if one object is below another object in space it could be considered to be south. In any case this is "a long time ago in a galaxy far far away" so the way they interpret the galaxy may be entirely foreign to us.

yeah i picked up on this one too, but south - generally assosiated with down - could have been used coloquially. also, N,S,E,W can be used for 3d maps aswell as long as there is a point of reference for one axis. for example, a glode of earth can still be used as N,S,E,W
