Degree Confluence
« on: February 18, 2005, 07:31:01 PM »
I was looking for something else entirely, but found a non game related website that was quite interesting.

http://www.confluence.org/

The goal of the project is to visit each of the latitude and longitude integer degree intersections in the world, and to take pictures at each location. The pictures and stories will then be posted here.

The project is an organized sampling of the world. There is a confluence within 49 miles (79 km) of you if you're on the surface of Earth. We've discounted confluences in the oceans and some near the poles, but there are still 12,416 to be found.

You're invited to help by photographing any one of these places. Read the Information pages, and contact us if you have questions.
