You can use a Geolocation field. It is a compound field that consists of a Longitude and Latitude.

For example, if you create a custom Geolocation field called Location__c you will automatically be able to access the Longitude and Latitude in your code as follows:

Location__Longitude__s and Location__Latitude__s.

You can look at the Geolocation Field Overview for more information.
