About me

Dear Visitors, my name is Igor Gaspar, I am a mechanical engineer, but Geography has always been my favorite subject. Together with my family, I built this site based on my offline tools for city analyzing, so these main geodata for a city can be found on one place and they are now available online for everybody for free.

What is your favorite city geodata type on this site? My contact can be found on the bottom of "Terms of use" page.

Longitude is a second geographical coordinate number from -180° to +180°. Prime meridian (0°Longitude) is based on the meridian of the Royal Observatory, Greenwich.
