Hello, I have found a fossil site referenced not too far from my home. The paper even gives the map coordinates. Trouble is, pasting the coordinates I have into Google Maps brings up zero results. So, I realised google maps replaces the degrees sign with a period. But inputting it in that way brings up a location around 80 miles south of where it is meant to be. If anyone can help me know where I am going wrong, or have a look at the coordinates and pop a pic of its location on a map, I would really appreciate it. Here are the coordinates given: 24°57’32.8
Sometimes I find myself at a site, say a road cut, where I want to look for fossils but don’t know the local geology. (For “sometimes,” read “often.”) But I always have my phone, so I can get the GPS coordinates where I am. Is there a way to go from GPS coordinates to geologic age of a location? If there is, it’ll be a lot easier to know what sort of fossils I might expect to find.
My neighbor and I are both getting ready to make some dives off of Venice, Florida to find some shark teeth. My neighbor just moved in, and I'm only recently certified, so we were wondering if anyone could share some GPS coordinates of places to make our first dives in Venice. He already owns a boat so taking a charter seems like an unnecessary expense. Any help would be great!
