Thumbs up More Great Wall GPS data

Thank you for these additional GPS coordinates on the Great Wall! Did you get all of these positions yourself with your GPS? If so, that's a really impressive list of places that you have visited! I will be able to make very good use of this information on my Hebei section hike next year!

I've been to all of them except Banchangyu - I found that location on Google Earth. I've also been to some places in Beijing and Tianjin but they are already on your list.

Default Great Wall locations

I've made a list of the places I know of so far. Any corrections or additions will be highly appreciated.

See the list here

The list is a work in progress so I don't claim it to be neither 100 % correct nor comprehensively.

Hello greatwallforum,

Thanks for this forum and post helpful information.
I am geographic educator and making a project related with Great Wall for my students.
I am looking on google for Great Wall GPS data and come into this forum.

One question for Kim's data
I can understand greatwallforum's data, the unit and digital is clear.
I am confusing on your data digital on degree minute unit ?
E.g.
Jiumenkou (Liaoning): 40 7'3.19"N 11944'38.93"E
Is that equal to ? 40 7.19"N 11944'.93"E
Or what that means exactly ?

However, this GPS data appears not complete.
Is that possible to know more data available ?
(I understand it's difficult to have complete data of great wall.
Just want to help my students to understand that better.)

Thank you for guide information and help.

The unit is degree [] minutes ['] and seconds [''], I think that's a very standard unit. So 40 7'3.19"N 11944'38.93"E is not equal to 40 7.19"N 11944'.93"E. Just copy the coordinates directly into Google Earth and you will see the place.

Some of us have worked a long time to get the coordinates from Google Earth and from our trips to the Great Wall itself, and it's a very complicated task and a work in progress. So far I think we have one of the most comprehensive list available, but there is still room for improvement.

Hello Jim,

Thank you for this introduce and google earth.
You are right. that is a precise coordiate system.

Now, I understand your data, degree [] minutes ['] and seconds ['']
40 7'3.19"N 11944'38.93"E the last two digital is decimal percentage of seconds ['']. Other digitals do not affect.

Is that possible for you to re-upload a new great wall data on a excel file ?
Your previous upload link appears not work. http://greatwall.se/upload/GreatWallofChina.xls

To re-discovery great wall physically is a great job.
