Confluence

I'm just enough of a map geek that I find this incredibly cool. It's called the "Confluence Project", and it's an attempt to visit and photograph all the of the integral meeting points of latitute and longitude. Obviously, the land-based ones are easier.... The pictures are all beautiful, frankly; more or less at random, here's one near me at 46° N and 122° W, in the Gifford Pinchot forest, and one at 44° N and 100° W in South Dakota, and one at 25° N and 49° E in Saudi Arabia.

It's just darn cool both as a use of GPS, and as an example of a kind of distributed photography that's only possible online. If anyone checking out the map of all visited confluences runs across one that's in an urban area, please send me a link. I'd like to see it.
