The only obvious difference between Analytic Geometry and Coordinate Geometry is their name.  In either case, it's about applying methods of algebra to the figures of geometry.  The "algebra" part is what sets analytic (coordinate) geometry apart from Euclid's descriptive geometry.  Euclid's deductive-logic approach is replaced with geometric coordinates and algebraic analysis.
