Geographical coordinates

 

1.   In the case of small Entities (especially islands) given are coordinates with accuracy to geographical minutes. Towards divergences in numerous sources too reliable are recognized data from The CIA Factbook, government - pages and from U.S.A. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.

2.   In the case of large Entities, are given approximate coordinates (to 1) of the point lying in the geometrical middle of the Entity.

 

Note: it is proper to pay attention that the 1 geographical minute it is about 1852 meters and the 1 geographical second it is about 31 meters. So to publish of coordinates with the exactitude to geographical seconds has a not large meaning only in the case of very small objects. Simultaneously appears the doubt regarding the reliability of so exact measurement (its sources); especially when this are not GPS' coordinates.
