I'll take a guess at S25 20.606 E131 01.338. Thanks for the Cointest!

 

PS: I might be creating your icon, gibbo! Do you have anything in mind?

Oh dear, it looks like Fudley likes the same location I do.

 

S 25 21.178

E 131 01.998 and that's my last change.

 

Thanks for the fun contest .... I loved the exploration and the incredibly sharp images.

OK, I guess I'm not getting this cointest. :) Am I supposed to be able to see the coin such as in WSR's picture cointests from a while back? Do I look at Google Earth (which doesn't work so well on my computer)? How does Droo (other than looking at Fudley's coordinates) know where Fudly chose? Is there a map or picture with all of the pushpin locations already chosen? Where is the - to quote Droo - " exploration and the incredibly sharp images"? I'm finding no link or anything! Help! ;)

All you need to do is select a spot on the rock. The pins are were others have selected. You will not be able to see the coin as the rock is very big and the coin is still being made. Hope this helps. good luck and Cheers gibbo003

You should have a proximity rule so everyone should have a 160m radius ;)

It's a big rock but I think I would run out of rock very quickly if I did that.

My first try in a cointest. My guess is closer than I would have liked to some of the others, but I see the coin being placed at S25 20.693 E131 1.949.

The exploration is done on Google Earth. The graphic is crystal clear and you can see individual PEOPLE walking to the rock!!! That's bloody amazing!! So tilting and "flying" around until you find a location suitable to hide a coin makes for fun exploring and virtual viewing of this colossus. But if you can't get GE to work on your rig, as I could not on my old PC, then you're playing blind.

 

You could view the rock on Google Maps online but there is no way to get the latlon coordinates necessary to stake your claim. Unless you know someone real nice who'd get you the coordinates if you sent them a pic of where you want to mark your spot.

 

Yes, by entering other people's coordinates you can see on what features they're hanging their hopes.

I'm not sure if I did this right, but if I did it should be at the spot on the rock that Google Earth calls Kangaroo Tall.

As the Aboriginal people aren't too fond of whities climbing on their sacred ground, I will put my marker at the base of the rock amongst the scrub and little rocks for cover B)

This has actually been in my minds for days now. Even if the placement is virtual (which I think is well within my understanding of this cointest,) I would think that just off the rock would be most appropriate.

 

My guess? S 25 20.560 E 131 3.045

 

Edited to add "." And I guess I'm not sure about the formatting of the coords. I used the coords that Google Earth said the "pointer" was at.

Sorry your coord's seem a little odd on this one, also as the climb is only virtual and I have hidden the coin virtually you will need to virtually climb the rock to find the coin. Please have a second go. Cheers gibbo003

Yup...I was afraid of this. I picked a spot near the base of the rock and copied the coords at the bottom of Googel Earth where the pointer was reported. Let me go see if I can figure this out...

I am copying what Google Earth tells me: 25º 20'55.74" S 131º 03'06.10" E

 

If this is far off, well, I don't know how to convert what GE tells me.

This is on the rock, from what I can tell.
