Contest #377 Answer: 12° 34′ 56″ North 12° 34′ 56″ West

This week’s contest was an attempt to drive our contestants to “think outside of the box” (or, more appropriately, at the corners of the coordinate box). The site was chosen entirely based on the interesting coordinate sequence. The inspiration for chosing this location came from a recent perusal of a website called confluence.org dedicated to documenting and photographing points on the earth where integer coordinates meet (like, for example, 47°N 9°E)

The site, interestingly enough since it is in the north western quadrasphere, is in Senegal Africa. Specifically, the area just south of the Nikolo Koba national park.

Those who found it (all before the Wednesday hint):

  • Lighthouse
  • Garfield
