CW7660 + WD01224 location problems
« on: April 05, 2008, 05:39:46 PM »
Just noticed that CW7660 doesnt seem to have the correct long/lat.

http://wxd.weather-watch.com/mml_sys/station_map.php?station=CW7660

gives...

51.67N 2.99W

when it should be...

Latitude: 51 24' 26" N (deg min sec), 51.4071 (decimal), 5124.43N (LORAN)
Longitude: 2 36' 26" W (deg min sec), -2.6072 (decimal), 00236.43W (LORAN)
Elevation: 66 meters (216 feet) -- validated against 66 meters (217 feet) from SRTM.C_1TO19_3
Location: Bristol, UK

Also, I guess that WD01224 copied the long/lat from CW7660 becuase that seems to be in Wales as well.

Richie.
