June 3, 2007 for GPS and GIS fans everywhere
I have been taking my GPS where ever I go and Summit is no exception. I really do like to see where I am, especially when flying on airplanes. Only once did I have a flight within the US where I could access a GPS unit in the seat in front of me and that was awesome. So I just carry my own GPS with me.
I am going to give waypoints for Summit camp buildings and pictures of those structures in this journal for anyone who would like to use them. Some structures are temporary and I have not included them. Assume that the coordinates are given as lat/long in decimal degrees.
