◌  A microconfluence

7 August 2012

The Degree Confluence Project pleases me. People take photos of the intersections of the lines of integer latitude and longitude, and slowly it becomes a worldwide sampling of land use. Unfortunately, all the confluences near me have already been ground-truthed. Therefore, I introduce the microconfluence:

I figure 00 following the target digits (or 99 on the previous) is good enough to count. The phone in the photo is nominally 1.16 meters (3′ 9¾″) ENE of 45.54°, −122.67°, but it’s more accurate to say it’s somewhere in the error zone of the consumer GPS chip.
