Previous Site o' the Month
Degree Confluence Project
October 2003

www.confluence.org

This month's site definitely falls in the category of, "If You Have To Ask Why, You Just Don't Get It." The web site's home page says it all: "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." Begun in 1996, the project is carried out by volunteers with Global Positioning Systems, a sense of adventure, and lots of free times. There are 64,442 confluences on the earth, but not all will be photographed as part of this project. (Some are not on land, etc.) Check out the progress.
