1 dollar cost of disproving round map !

Get a compass 1 dollar cost.

Go to nearest road that shown in google map. Use the compass on the road to find out direction of the road.



Go open the google map and find out same road, same location. Draw a compass on the road yourself and compare them.



You'll see that some of directions are true but some of aren't. It is your chance to your test prove or disprove the map.

In Piri Reis map Istanbul European side seems as east to west, different direction of Asian side of Istanbul; and according to google it seems as Asian side and placed on East south.





My compass prove the N on Piri reis map is true and N on google map is wrong in west side of Istanbul !

30 cents for disproving round map !  ;D

Almost all important religional structures placed the direction to real north ! This situation causes by a bit religinal and a bit climatic.

This is patriarchate. One of the most religinal structure in Istanbul. Also Turkey, and a bit for Europe. One of the most important building for Ortodoxes.



Placed North to 40 degrees east!

This is Aya Irini. One of the most known temple in Istanbul. Placed in Topkapi Palace.



Placed North to 40 degrees East!

This is Suleymaniye. One of two biggest mosque in Istanbul.



Placed North to 40 degrees East!

This is the greatest mosque in Istanbul, also in Turkey. Sultan Ahmet.



Placed North to 40 degrees East!

I'm calculated true north now 25 degrees east. So history have about 15 degrees mistake and google has about 20 degrees mistake. My map has about zero degrees mistake.  :)

That just proves the lack of accuracy in a $1 compass.
Just to be clear, you are all terrific, but everything you say is exactly what a moron would say.

Can't your cellphone or watch be used as a compass? Digital is the way go.

Geographic North and Magnetic North aren't the same thing, who said they were in the same spot???

I have an old Dallas County (Texas, U.S.A.) Road Map. It has a notation indicating the Magnetic Declination at that time.

It has been years ago ! .....LOL.....I took a sophomore level course in college in Surveying. I can't recall if the subject of Magnetic Declination was covered, but I feel reasonably certain it might have been covered in more advanced courses. It is just part of the facts of life for a surveyor.
When was the last time you took a course in surveying, intikam ?  Or when was the last time you took a course in anything ?

All you have done is superimpose an image of a compass over an image of a map.  What, exactly, does this prove other than you are capable of using photo manipulation software?  Hasn't it been decreed by the FES that no photo will be used as proof of anything simply because all photos have been manipulated?

I don't trust to the tecnology at all. Basic is always better.

That proves $1 compass is more reliable than some people.

If one of you haven't another silly objection accept this round map is a nonsence and wrong. Stop to crying like babies.

Stop being disrespectful. Play by your own rules.

Start being smart. This is just another post by Intikam thinking like a 10-year old kid.

"ignored:  rabinoz, Rounder, and 3 others." I hope the MIT doesn't have tentacles here.

How is this "real north" being determined?  The store-bought compass?  A non-Google map that you trust?  Observation of sun or star rotation?
