The Degree Confluence Project has a goal to visit each of the latitude and longitude integer degree intersections in the world, and to take pictures at each location. It was started in 1996 by a guy who just bought a GPS and didn’t know what to do with it. Now there are over 30,000 photos of these places where the longitude and latitude meet. You can spend hours just browsing the pics, but it’s also fun to read the stories of how people got to them — especially if, like the one for 45 N 69 W in Maine, it’s by a guy who’s traveling around an area he doesn’t know very well, but you do.
