Australia is having to change it's coordinate system again because the continent has drifted about 1.8 m northeast


"The key thing to remember is that, in order to be reliable, location information must be identified by the datum as well as the coordinates."



In 2020, a driverless tractor using satellite positioning to work a paddock mapped under GDA94 will need to know the paddock and its national coordinates have moved 1.8 m since GDA94 was established.

From Pakistan, Kashmir appears disputed. From India, it appears as a part of India. Google Maps changes disputed borders based on what country you search from.

If you want to go to the bird-lookout platform from Oslo without leaving Norway, it's only a 2500-mile trip.

 



 
I've been in and around Copenhagen, Denmark (wonderful place) but never up into the rest of Scandinavia.  I have a feeling the farther north one goes the more pickled fish becomes a culinary staple.

Some crank made news for saying Trump's mention of Norway was because he wanted to help defend their border with Russia or something.
 
So I took a little tour of the Norge/Russia border...

Why do Americans leave out the Red River, flowing north from Minnesota/North Dakota into Canada?

And the reach of the Columbia River that flows north into Canada before returning to the south.
