This regular column by Eliza Schmidkunz is all about GNSS datapoints and factoids. It is designed to clear the palate after several courses of dense technical articles. (The loyal reader to your right, for example, has digested a number of equations and is thrilled at her visit to the Prime Meridian, definitely a GNSS Hotspot)
