Mountan View, CA Now Our Prime Meridian?

Filed under: Geographic Exploration Systems, GES — geoLibro @ 11:54 am

I was reading a particularly obtuse Digg exchange when I came across this (particulars changed):

For anyone interested, Google Earth Coords for Hubbard Park:

41° 39′ 42" N

091° 32′ 18" W

…suggesting to me that even the coordinate system is now being credited to Google. But it also suggests another way to leverage Google’s infiltration for good: if the U.S. government is serious about us learning and using the National Grid (USNG), they need to have Google use it for U.S. locations. That would take care of it shortly, I suppose.
