Degree Confluence Project

The Degree Confluence Project sets out to visit and record every point on the Earth's surface where lines of latitude and longitude intersect. According to the site, there's a confluence point (CP) within 49 miles (79 km) of any place on the planet; discounting confluences in the oceans and some near the poles, there are 13,625 to be found.
Though some seem to take it far too seriously, it's an interesting idea, and the mosaic of digital photos taken at the CPs is impressive, so I can sort of see the attraction. The hunt for the nearest land-based one to me, the last unvisited terrestrial CP in the UK, turned out to be quite a quest - read the story of the three attempts.
