Waypoints
Navigational Points for Lake Ontario Swims




The following waypoints are accurate within 30-50 m, now the Selective Adjustment (previously imposed by the USA government on their satellites) has been removed. They should, however, be checked by the user before relying on their accuracy. The points are defined in Degrees : Minutes : Seconds. One second of angular displacement in a north-south direction is equivalent to approximately 30 m on the surface of the earth. In an east-west direction, this 30 m measure is only true at the equator and decreases as you progress to northern or southern latitudes.

The associated distances between these various points on the north and south shores on Lake Ontario are detailed in a separate file of distances.
