Geographic coordinate system Coordinate system

A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system that enables every location on Earth to be specified by a set of numbers, letters or symbols. The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents a vertical position and two or three of the numbers represent a horizontal position; alternatively, a geographic position may be expressed in a combined three-dimensional Cartesian vector. A common choice of coordinates is latitude, longitude and elevation. To specify a location on a plane requires a map projection.

Watford Island was part of the British Admiralty presence at the west end of Bermuda. It housed Royal Navy barracks. The buildings were abandoned after WW2 until one of them was taken over by the Government and converted to Police barrackss in 1956.
