Daily Telegraph article

The 31-year-old actress had had four lines tattooed at the top of her left arm which are the geographical co-ordinates for the countries where her four children were born.

The top line is the longitudinal and latitudinal location of Cambodia, where the Oscar-winner's adopted son Maddox, five, was born.

Next are the co-ordinates for Ethiopia, where Miss Jolie adopted her two-year-old daughter Zahara. Third on the list is Namibia, where the Tomb Raider star gave birth to her ten-month-old daughter, Shiloh.

Last is the location for Vietnam and three-year-old Pax Thien, an orphan adopted by Miss Jolie and her boyfriend Brad Pitt in March.

Maybe having Brad do a Google Mashup would have been better. :P

In decimal degrees or dd/mm/ss? With a W or a - sign? And how do you get one set of coordinates for the entire country? Good thing none of her children were born in a large country. Iguess we'll leave it for the tabloids to figure out.

I saw the picture once, I'm pretty sure its dd/mm/ss, much classier with the o and ' and ".

Doesn't each country have a geographic centroid? The CIA World Factbook lists one coordinate per country. https://www.cia.gov/...ok/geos/cb.html

This thread is a mix of celebrity gossip and geography. My favorite!
Well - I would suppose the coordinates are the town of adoption, or the little munchkins' place of birth.

I was going to make a joke map of Paris Hilton's arrest locations around LA back when the "worst map ever" thread was running. :)

Here's the tattoo folks:

Here's another "news" story along with a photo of all 4 coordinates, all in dd/mm/ss.
