Along the same geographic latitude does magnetic field change or not, and the same for the gravitational field, does it change along a geographic latitude? Please explain.

And here's Earth's gravitational field strength courtesy of NASA's GRACE satellite. Note that the anomalies are quite exaggerated; the gravitational field is very close to uniform.
