When I first saw this website, I was so moved by it..by the concept. Not the actual doing of it, but..here were all of these people from all over the world, participating in this 'thing' that really means nothing, and yet, encompasses the whole world. No compensation, no arm twisting..just people being involved in their world..their whole entire fucking world.
http://confluence.org/ is the site address.....
|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 here.
The project is an organized sampling of the world. There is a confluence within 49 miles (79 km) of you if you're on the surface of Earth. We've discounted confluences in the oceans and some near the poles, but there are still 10,209 to be found.
You're invited to help by photographing any one of these places. Read the Information pages, and contact us if you have questions.
|Uruguay is complete
Milton Teuner on a bike trip from Brazil, has visited 32S 55W, and complete Uruguay's confluences
patience really is a virtue
It only took three years of planning, and three attempts, but finally Cameron Hart conquered the elusive 15S-128E.
18 newest confluence visits (view on Google Maps)
The date the confluence is posted to the site is used to determine the newest confluence visits.
