Ivan, as far as i know this has been the practice used by navigators since early times. In ancient Greece a mathematician, Hipparchus, developed a grid system with rows for lines of latitude and columns for meridians of longitude to position his home at Rhodes. The system has been refined over the years but the idea and practice remain the same. can you show me the way it is shown on the map are chart. because of the forum use fake numbers.
