Geographical Help / Re: Greenlandic Place Names -- Discussion
« on: August 03, 2017, 05:18:38 pm »
Wow! Thank you so much Danny!!!
Quite a huge list of places... counting aliases i think we've more than doubled the actual reference ;)

I've already added all the placenames to the db and will soon extract infos to generate google maps, reference thread and csv.

I've also added a few more resources and your Danish book to the reference thread.

For the uncertain ones:
- Torgilsbu/Bluie East One... i think Torgilsbu location is the one you've pointed out. The Bluie East One at Prince Christian Sound is totally elsewhere, maybe, like the Bluie East Five it was relocated at a certain time (found no mentions of this though).
- The various Bluies - I've added them all except Bluie West Two (and your last post gave me a new hint i'll look into - i knew only it was in Coppermine Bay/Kobbermine Bugt, but Kipisaki was pretty puzzling me as i had found only a fjord of that name on the east coast). PS: Don't trust Wiki when it comes to geographic positions.. none of the Bluie was correctly placed, and i've directly experienced in the past their gps positions are often quite poor.
- Nugsuak Halvo: I've used Nuussuaq, i think the sound of the two names is similar enough.
- Kangek Island: There's a Kangeq island shortly southwest of Singarnak... i've used that one.
- Kingigtanguak Island: Very puzzling... i've used Kanginguaq for the more similar ending, but could really be either one.
- The Deadhs? Fjord = De Dodes Fjord, i've used The Deadhs Fjord as an alias. Even if it makes little sense, it's the only thing i can read as well in that logpage. It seems the result of someone asking "what's the name?" and another one reading aloud "[Th/D]e D[o-e]d's Fjord!" (the o in Dodes is the danish barred one - cant place it here on the forum).
- Eikerasak Settlement: Found nothing as well :(
- Skardlugsuak: As Randi said  ;D
- Narrsak Village: A place named Narsaq is on the peninsula north of the passage. I've used that one
- Hochstetter Forland Hunting Station: The Nanok Hunting Station was (is?) located between Kap Rink and Nils Hansen Naes. I think it's that one (all the other hunting places around were just huts and not a "station").
- Coal Point, Coal Point, Muskox Point: These are just driving me mad ;D Found none of them so far... i think the geonames NW Kal Pynt is most probably bad placed. There was a coal mine shortly south of Kulhus scientific station, so at least one of the coal points could be pretty near there... given the bearings, though, i think as well the one south of the mine should be the "main" Coal Point... will deepen searches.

Hi Joan, i'd be glad to add the alias, but i've found nothing about Herschel Island  ;D

I've found two distinct Herschel Islands in Canada (Yukon and Ontario), an Isla Herschel in Chile and the island of Oenaro-do in South Korea, which also was called Herschel Island in the past.
Being your post in the Other thread makes me suspect there's one more (british isles maybe?)

Thank you everybody!!! :D

Now how will you spend your time?  ;)
How about helping to beta test Bob's new OW? ;D
I'd be delighted... it is something i've been very curious about, but i've had to save all the scarce spare time (the kid is growing up fast and, unlike me and my wife, has a lot of energies) for finishing up Unalga and maintain the Geog Help Board and our OWTools (which, of course, i'll continue to do).

Other less funny tasks for the future could be:
- Reformatting Unalga crew list thread (i've adopted a precise "method" only after a certain point. First posts were, and still are, pretty caothical). In a few words: quite a boring task.... forum bbcode should be taken in small doses ::)
- Catching up placenames from the most RN edited logs i can (every time i see a new ship being published on naval-history i think to how many obscure places i could find there). I've done it a couple times and it was pretty funny at times, but a slow task and quite difficult in some areas (i still have nightmares about finding Yangtze river places, until a set of priceless maps popped out from the internet and sorted a few important things out).

Had not realized it took that much.. until i checked my first post on the discussion thread!

Yup, i was quite younger, with one less kid and one more dad (may he rest in peace - he did love history and he was just fascinated when i showed him OW) when i started this awesome voyage in her logbooks.

I'd be dead curious to see her transcripts, i wasn't used at all in transcriber's science (does a thing like that exist at all?), therefore i'd probably be a little ashamed in reading back my very first goofy attempts (i expect many typing and/or reading errors in more or less 20 years worth of logs). Also future editors will have an hard time reformatting events (since i had no way to add carriage returns in transcribing watches :o ).

Thank you Hanibal, the picture is very well placed, as pretty more every other you posted here ;D  ;D

So long Mighty U... i'll miss your logpages quite a lot :'( ::)

Have really 5 years passed since i started transcribing her? My very first post in this thread dates back to 25 October 2012 :o
