Degree Confluence Project

April 29th, 2003 Comments Off on Degree Confluence Project

The Degree Confluence Project is an interesting initiative to take an organized sampling of the world by visiting and photographing each point of Earth’s surface where latitude and longitude intersect in integer degrees. The project obviously excludes points on the oceans and near the poles, but there is still more than 13 thousands points to visit. The pictures and stories are interesting.

In Brazil there are 728 confluence points, of which 62 where visited. In the state where I live, Minas Gerais, there are 53 and 10 were visited. It would be interesting to go to some of the points near my city, but I don’t own a GPS device and the points seem to be in places of difficult access most times. To those who enjoy geocaching, however, the project seems to be a good alternative to have fun and contribute.
