Degree Confluence Project
Posted By On December 16, 2004 @ 2:33 PM In Cool Sites | No Comments
“The project is an organized sampling of the world. There is a confluence within 49 miles (79 km) of you if you’re on the surface of Earth. We’ve discounted confluences in the oceans and some near the poles, but there are still 12,555 to be found.”
They are taking pictures of all these confluences. So that means that are tons of photos for you to browse through of these special places and from all over the world.
I recommend checking out the journey of Rainer Mautz. Who traveled from Germany to China, mostly by land and sought out 29 of these confluences. It is filled with neat pictures from many countries.
And if you are only interested in seeing different countries you can scroll down the page and go by the country listing. Just choose the country you want to view and it will whisk you to the pictures of the confluences in the those countries.
This site is really neat. I wish I had the time to drive around taking pictures of some of these place. If you do, you can get in touch with them – and send them the pictures you take. So you can even participate.
Go check it out!
