Geocode it!

I have filled up the geo-coordinates on the Google Spreadsheet for our group Downer and the rows that did not have coordinates.  I am sure there are more rows (places) to be added.

If you are struggling to get the right coordinates on site and the place has a traditional address, try GPS Visualizer, which converts addresses to coordinates.  Please note that the converter does not recognize the addresses along N. Lincoln Memorial Dr. for some reasons (Well, the street is technically a private road).  That means the Beach group, in most cases, should get the right coordinates on site.

Technically speaking, multiple addresses can be converted at once here.

However, nobody can know which addresses can be converted properly.  For this reason, one-by-one conversion is desirable because you can verify the result on a map.

That is all for now.  Happy geo-coding!
