The Degree Confluence Project
GRADE LEVEL: 6-12, Advanced


The goal of this project is "to visit each of the latitude and longitude integer degree intersections in the world and take pictures at each location."
The site has a simple layout with quick loading graphics. It is available in Portuguese and English.
The left-side menu includes an alphabetical list of countries in which the confluences are located. Visitors use the back button on the browser to return to the home page.
Did you know that there is a confluence within 49 miles of you? This site could help engage students in the study of latitude and longitude. Visitors are encouraged to locate a confluence near them, take pictures, write narratives about the experience, and submit them for publication. Included are step-by-step directions for finding confluences, a numerical index, and a Composite World Map.
