ConfluencePeople go to extremes traveling the world with set itineraries and points-of-interests.

One of them is ‘Confluence Trips’. A point of confluence occurs at the integer degree intersections where a line of latitude meets a line of longitude. There is a confluence within 49 miles (79 km) of you if you’re on the surface of the world.

There are 64,442 latitude and longitude degree intersections in the world (counting each pole as one intersection). Check out to find out how many fall in your country.
