Thank you
« on: May 20, 2013, 03:50:37 pm »
This is just a thank you for all the excellent material on place locations accumulated in this section. It's vital for us, of course, to know where our ships are - but the places database is useful for more than that: I currently have two colleagues - one in Portugal and one in Australia - who have ship records of their own that they need to geolocate, and they've asked for all our information on the subject. So I'm extracting all these records into one master list which we'll be sharing with them (and anyone else who asks).

It seems likely that we're now the official experts on port locations, as well as all our other results.

Thanks, Philip.

I'll post some more that I've tracked down, especially if you are prepared to do the collating!

I went through my list, and for the ones on the surviving Black Sea map, I added lat/long - both on the list and in the place description on the map itself.

I have a bit of a collection of places on the Tigris and Euphrates, from the Mespotamia campaign boats. Will they help, or are only marine ports of use?

Happy to type them out and collate if they will help.
