Dead straight lines on hitmaps.

Postby SeanW » Wed Jul 27, 2011 11:39 pm

I just saw, for the first time today, a hit where, on the map showing the note's travel, the line was absolutely level, horizontally.
Groningenm, NL to Dalkey, IE.

Has anyone any other examples of hit lines that are dead-level horizontally or vertically?
(i.e. straight up/down or straight across)

Salthill is 1/4 of a degree to the left compared with Leira.

I did`nt know it had to be that precise.
Oranmore would have been closer.
I am sure the note was out there before I entered it. :?

I've got one that's almost perfectly East-West: Ahaus-Utrecht.

But none that are North-South.

Edit after three more posts: Ahaus: 51 09 North, Utrecht: 51 10 North.

My most horizontal hit appears to be Schaffen :arrow: Vieselbach
3290 Schaffen: 51° 0' 0" N
99198 Vieselbach: 51° 0' 4" N

My most vertical hit is almost certainly 99084 Erfurt :arrow: 90449 Nürnberg
99084 Erfurt: 11° 1' 46.92" E
90449 Nürnberg: 11° 1' 46.56" E

At least I got this one from Zeist :flag-nl: to Killarny :flag-ie: 1004 kms
I remember I had a hit/hits like this with Germany but I can't remember when and where it was

I had another look,yes it is 27/100 degree off.http://itouchmap.com/latlong.html

But,I still think it looks OK, http://en.eurobilltracker.com/notes/?id=93535382

Because we get so few :flag-ie: hits I have to keep looking at the same ones over again.
If I had 1000 hits I would not have the time.
