Sorry for (hopefully) one last email about the count circle project. I see 2
kinds of maps resulting from this endeavor. One map will have each count
circle with its code. This map will be in 2 different sizes to accommodate
the 28k folks. This map will also serve as an image map with links from each
count circle to other pages with count circle information (to be determined
later). The second type of map I envision to be much more accurate and
detailed based either upon Latitude/longitude - degrees/minutes/seconds or
on Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinates.
I believe the first map shouldn't take me too long as I have most, if not
all of the coordinates already. The second project will be a little longer
in completion. The locations for most count circles do NOT include seconds
(only degrees and minutes) which leaves lots of room for error. It would be
nice to determine the circle epicenter more precisely and then I will plot
them on a much more detailed map divided up into smaller sections.
What I need to know from the scientific community is which system should be
used, the latilong system or the UTM system? TopoZone.com has the ability to
plot either system and that is probably what I'll use to fix exact location.
(I don't have access to ArcView.)
Again, sorry for the 3rd email in a row.
