GPS Locations

The following table gives the latitude (north) and longitude (west) for each area that WPOC uses to hold orienteering events.  The specific locations are either the entrances to the parks or the actual location where registration is for the events in that area.  For areas where we use more than one location, the second location is given on a separate line after the first location.  Locations of additional areas which WPOC has mapped but are too small to hold an event on and those areas in the process of being mapped are listed without a GPS location.  A single declination value is shown for each park representing approximately the middle of the park.
