In general, an imaginary line is any sort of line that has only an abstract definition, and does not exist in fact.
As a geographical concept, an imaginary line may serve as an arbitrary division (such as a border). It may also be a standardized mark that serves as a measurement or point of reference (such as a circle of latitude or the Prime Meridian).
