This GPS drawing was made in stages over a period of three months
from January 2005.
It was drawn along two meridians with 100 years between them being established by
international agreement as world standards. The Greenwich Meridian and the WGS84
Meridian is marked to indicate a range of agreement between local and worldwide systems.
