AJ, GPS coordinates is somewhat of a misnomer, as these coordinate systems existed long before GPS was established. A better term is geographic coordinates. The advent of GPS allowed people to quickly and easily determine their coordinates, and so the use of the coordinate framework has become more widespread and some people now call them GPS coordinates. Some maps will show geographic coordinates on them. An example of commonly available maps are the USGS topographic maps and DeLorme's Atlas and Gazetteer series of state atlases. One for Arizona is available and cost $14.95 about 6 years ago when I bought mine. Thus, the site coordinates could be useful to people without a GPS if they had the proper maps and did some interpolation to plot the positions on the map. Even with a GPS it's good to have a map to figure out what roads to take to get to the spot. Tom AJ Crayon wrote: > > Wil, where is the Zane Grey meadow located?
