      t r i c o u n t r y 2 0 1 2 in progress & pending changes

      totally revised 
      but still 
      impartially coded 
      official united nations tripoint registry yearbook 4th edition

      including many new photos with notable recent developments & findings highlighted in yellow

      part 1
      the 176 official united nations trijunctionof sovereign state territory on land & sea
      with 2 possible alternates & 1 probable near miss added in red

      all fully agreed & marked de jure tripoints of sovereign lands & limits of united nations member states unless otherwise indicated 
      economic zonal trijunctions pursuant to unclos being already formally registered within various organs of the united nations & thus not included herein 

         country digraphs for designating sovereign territorial trijunctions & bounds of member states are per official decoding table 
         & are arranged alphabetically 
         with directional suffixes e&w or n&s added as needed to distinguish 10 pairs of twin trijunctions

         a single table to correctly decode & or encipher plain english country names

      001 adesfre marked by original 1868 esfr pillar 427 at portella blanca in roughly n42d30m10s e1d43m33s wgs84 
      while perhaps not strictly a tricountry point til 1993 andorran constitution & admission to united nations nevertheless a condominial or march trijunction almost continuously since 1278

      andorra france spain west
      002 adesfrw summit of pic de medacorba elev2914m in roughly n42d36m13s e1d26m30s wgs84 marked only informally by cairn & iron post 
      while perhaps not strictly a tricountry point til 1993 andorran constitution & admission to united nations nevertheless a condominial or march trijunction almost continuously since 1278 & tho effectively a twin of the adesfre tripoint above yet in sharp distinction to it fixed ony by tradition & an exceedingly loose reading of the 1862 esfr treaty text that actually appoints the boundary convergence to the nearby but distinct pic de baiau

      qatar with saudi arabia & united arab emirates
      003 aeqasa hypothetical equidistant point in persian gulf notional since independence of qatar & the trucial states in 1971 tho positionally elusive at very roughly n24d40m12s e51d36m36s per vliz based on de facto aesa land border disputed by emirates but purportedly consistent with secret unratified 1974 aesa accord 
      the above approx location is shown by the green arrowhead on the following zoomable sky pic map http://tinyurl.com/2er2uq2 
      while it is noteworthy that an evidently official emirati source citing oilpatch mapping has suggested 24n40 51e35

      oman with saudi arabia & united arab emirates
      004 aeomsa tripoint position at umm az zamul wells in roughly n22d42m30s e55d12m30s wgs84 tho agreed by om&sa in 1990 & by ae&om between 1999 & 2008 is believed not yet formally marked because emirates have not ratified 1974 aesa accord that would have distilled a tripoint from original gbomsa triple frontier of separation of 1920s
      historical maps suggest multiple frontier is inherent to empty quarter http://www.terra.es/personal7/jqvaraderey/arabia.htm & http://rumsey.geogarage.com/maps/g0890086.html etc

      005 afcnpk placed by conflicting instruments at an uncertain pamir summit of elev5630m in roughly 37n3 74e36 or 74e34 & further complicated by the existence of unpublished if not also inadequate official maps of all 3 convergent delimitations but situated in any case about 10km southwest of kilik pass the trijunction has existed loosely & not without objection since the durand afgb treaty of 1893 first as notional afcngb & from 1947 to 1949 as notional afgbin but was not trilaterally established even provisionally until the cnpk & afcn treaties of the early 1960s & remains tentative up to the present subject to the settlement of the inpk dispute over jammu & kashmir & moreover is believed to be undemarcated anywhere
      downloadable topo http://en.poehali.org/maps/100k--j43-102.html shows tripoint at lower left not on any summit but judiciously at a ridge trijunction of approx elev 5560m in a location that differs by a minute or two from those indicated by the afcn & cnpk agreements & cited by the ibs http://www.law.fsu.edu/library/collection/LimitsinSeas/IBS089.pdf & http://www.law.fsu.edu/library/collection/LimitsinSeas/IBS085.pdf

      006 afcntj probably reconcilable at unmarked ridge trijunction in elev5523m near summit of mt povalo shveykovskiy aka kokrash kol tho the treaties appear to stipulate the exact summit & impossible elevations of up to 5698m & to miss the fact that the summit point in actual elev5543m is isolated from the ridges all the delimitations follow
      downloadable topo http://en.poehali.org/maps/100k--j43-102.html in larger scale than the mutually conflicting maps attached to the 1963 afcn treaty shows the above described probable tripoint position at upper right in roughly 37n14 74e53
      & while the following boundary studies address some of the above anomalies http://www.law.fsu.edu/library/collection/LimitsinSeas/IBS089.pdf & http://www.law.fsu.edu/library/collection/LimitsinSeas/IBS026.pdf & http://www.law.fsu.edu/library/collection/LimitsinSeas/IBS064.pdf there exists in addition an unpublished 2002 cntj accord that may have produced a 2008 demarcation
