[edit] Location

The Melbourne graticule is located at 28, -80, and is mostly dam water (actually salt water). Between the large amount of water, NASA, Patrick AFB, Melbourne Airport, swamps and sod farms, etc. we have precious little actual land in our graticule. On the rare occasion that we do get a point on land, everyone is forced to drop any plans they had for that day and head to the point.

Should a location appear in the water, the meeting point automatically becomes the closest shoreline to the point in question.
