The degree confluence project is very nifty; a degree confluence is a longitude/latitude crossing, and generally they don’t really look like they do in The Pirates in the Deep Green Sea — although the confluence project only deals with confluences on land, so who can tell, really?

In any case, the web site collects reports about trips to confluences, with pictures and facts about the immediate surroundings. In Sweden, all confluences have been visited at least once (though there is nothing to stop anybody from making a second visit, of course.) The one closest to us seems rather interesting: according to the information on the page it has a “fur [sic] tree”! (Link via Watty)
