The World Coordinate ConverterWe all run into times when making maps and we need coordinates for exact locations.  I came across this nifty tool called the World Coordinate Converter (catchy huh!)-TWCC, for short.

What is TWCC?

TWCC, "The World Coordinate Converter", is a tool to convert geodetic coordinates in a wide range of reference systems.

Several coordinate conversion tools already exist, however, here is what makes the strength of TWCC:

  • This tool is intuitive and easy to use.
  • The possibility to add user-defined systems and the use of an interactive map make it flexible.
  • No download or special installation is required, you just need to have an Internet connection.
  • TWCC is compatible with most environments (Mac, Linux, Windows...). W3C XHTML 1.0 compliant Tested for:
    • MS Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8
    • Mozilla FireFox 3
    • Safari 4 and 5
    • Opera 10
    • Google Chrome 5
    • Chromium 4 to 6
  • TWCC is completely FREE and licensed under CC BY-NC: CC BY-NC

TWCC was created by Clément Ronzon following research and development carried out for GrottoCenter.org.

"Abraham Lincoln" (D.W. Griffith) 1930

This film was to be D.W. Griffith's big comeback production, and it did very well for "the old master." In fact, it was chosen as number two of the Ten Best Pictures of 1930 by The Film Daily, just below "All Quiet On The Western Front!" Sadly, due…
