    The answer is a vector. As long as it has some sort of magnitude, and is in some sort of direction, it is a vector.

    It MAY be called a vector if it also complies with certain rules relating to addition of two or more of the same type of quantity.

    any quantity with both magnitude and direction is a vector. 

    There is a difference between 50 km and 50 km north 30 degrees east.

    The first one would be a scalar quantity (just the magnitude) and the second one would be a vector quantity.
