Included are the stories of how the confluence hunters discovered the spots. Teams use handheld GPS units to track latitude and longitude. Confluences are often difficult to discover.

Technical Remarks:

This site does not have all countries listed such as Korea.
Do not ignore any country. Korea is such a beautiful country too!
This site lets the audiences to view nice pictures of each country and it's very
tempting to buy things such as T-shirts and mugs.

I spent about 5 minutes browing it and it only took me couple minutes to find
out about the material!
It presents concepts and models as well. This is great for anyone who is
willing to learn about the world. This site will help both students and teachers
to enhance their learning skills. It was my first time visiting the site, and
I found it very easy to use!!

If someone can think it, there is a website out there devoted to it. People
travel to all lengths of the world with GPS (Global Positioning Systems) units
in search of whole number latitude and longitude locations. Pictures from
North, South, East, West, and GPS are then posted to the site for all to see.

Technical Remarks:

Great Ease of navigation with no dead links to speak of. Quality of pictures
posted are outstanding and viewable from various perspectives. This site is all
volunteer run so you are not overwhelmed with ads.
