is an interesting project that is related vicariously to cartography.
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 about the visits, will then be
posted on their website.

Have any of you visited these degree intersections?

I'd have to check, but I think I came very close to one of the Dutch confluences several times.

a confluence, but pretty cool anyway, is the Prime Meridian in
Greenwich. Was there last Saturday, after closing time unfortunately :(
