I've been reading a lot of books about the Grail Legend, the Knights Templar, the Masons, and the bloodline of Jesus. I'm also taking classes in Geographic Information Systems. I'd like to collect GPS coordinates for the famous sites mentioned in these books and maybe plot them in a GIS system. Actual digital photos of these places would be nice also to allow the photo to pop-up when the computer mouse hovers over the plotted site. For example I have found GPS coordinates from a geocache left at Rosslyn Chapel.
per Geocaching.com, the coordinates are in the WGS84 Datum.
