It might be fun to put together a list of wineries and their longitude and latitude so that they can be found by wine lovers. Might even be a nice addition to the Wine Lovers Page. [What do you think, Robin?]
Now, I find a nearby city -- say Napa -- and then "fly" up the road a piece to find say Mondavi. Adds a bit of spice to drinking one of his wines. Same in Bordeaux -- the French maps are really quite good, especially in Bordeaux, where the photos seem to have been taken in the winter.
Google Earth says this is what they need to make the search work:
What latitude and longitude formats can I use in Google Earth?
We currently support two input formats for GPS coordinates: DDD (decimal degrees) and DMS (using the 37 degrees 3' 43.22" syntax). Also, please note that the coordinates will only be accepted in latitude and longitude pairs and not vice versa. You can also reference the Fly To tab for acceptable examples of formats for latitude and longitude. Different examples of input show each time you switch tabs in the search area.
Any interest? I'd be glad to work on the project.
