Whats the point?gps

Such references weren't much use to the majority of people in the past, but today they can be put into

  • GPS devices such as the likes of SatNav
  • Various map utilities not unlike Google and Yahoo maps

Give me an example!

Go to http://maps.google.com/ (open in a new window).

Copy and paste the decimal coordinates for Anglingham Quarry from the table above ( 53.317259 , -9.063521 ) , into google maps search bar, and click the "Search Maps" button.
