I would rather like to see all your location information there than in these threads.
I think the goal should be to have them in both places. At this time only a few are missing from information threads in the forum.
There is one problem about matching them up. In the map, we put them where they appear on the map. In the information threads, many of them come from actual GPS readings. As we know, sometimes the Google Earth imagery is slightly misplaced and therefore the two numbers differ. A good example is Jiuyanlou tower at Jiankou. On Google Earth, it's at 40°28'51.28"N 116°30'8.35"E. GPS measurement, with a reported accuracy of a few meters, places it at 40°28'54.63"N 116°30'8.12"E. The difference between the two is about 108 meters or 354 feet. Not a trivial discrepancy! I admit that this is about the worst example I could find. In most places, accuracy is better, but in a north-south direction the accuracy varies while it usually seems pretty good east to west.
By the way, this is why I round off GPS measurements to the nearest inch or sometimes half inch, so as not to imply accuracy that we don't actually have.
