Treasure hunt

With the new tecnologies the pirates do not need a detailed map to get the hidden treasure. They only need the precise coordinates of the location. This can be made by a modern GPS. The coordinates mark a point called "WAYPOINT" (or GEOCACHE point) ; for example the waypoint of the IESDRE has the next coordinates: 37º 18.944' N , 6º 50.707' W (Latitud, Longitud).

If your GPS know your current position and the treasury position it can trace a line between those two points so that you only must follow the track to get the final point (yes, the desired treasure !!!!!)
With such information a GPS is able to go to the location with error less than 5m.

This morning the girls students of 3S Diversification found the treasure hidden yesterday by the boys. Ohhhhh. Ahhhh. Is the war " We are the best, shouted they"

To be continued....
