I've just had a look and it does have trench maps. Look at the Belgium/France Category. Might be useful for identifying "known" points for geo-referencing.Thanks for your reply - i'm trying / been trying to georeference several aerial photo's of Verdun from the Great War, as they're not already referenced, the side-by-side viewer wouldn't really help - sorry to interrupt your intake
Doesn't seem to extend as far SE as Verdun. Bollocks.I've just had a look and it does have trench maps. Look at the Belgium/France Category. Might be useful for identifying "known" points for geo-referencing.

I once drove from the Kuwaiti border to the Jordan border through Saudi Arabia without a map. There again, there was only one road which straddled the pipeline.............still managed to get lost albeit a mere 100 metres from my destination.Three - Norway - Russia - China - HK
Maybe two, depending on wether China - HK counts as a "National Border"
Either way, it's a long drive. Best take some sarnies.
Edited for acuracy
What you’ve just described is a modern (and possibly easier to understand) version of the conversation I have regularly with clients about why they need to do archaeological work. “But it’s just fields” is often touted, and countered with a description of what might be lurking beneath, and why we think so.I know it’s considered bad form to quote yourself but I thought an actual example might be of interest.
I often walk on the Calder & Hebble Navigation/River Calder.
View attachment 444987
It all seems pretty much rural nowadays (which is what makes it a nice walk) but it was long ago and then it wasn’t. It was a hive of heavy industry, smoke and soot. All gone.
1. The mineral railway bridge over the Navigation has gone (as has the railway)
2. The colliery has gone.
3. The railway line has gone.
5. The station has gone.
Without a map you might assume there was never anything there and it had always been agricultural land.
A lot of the factories/mills still exist but they all seem to be car places now and for some strange reason bed/mattress warehouses (I have never seen so many bed places in my life). The street names often reflect the heritage (Engine Lane, Forge Lane, Industrial Street etc).
Yes I thought that as well but to avoid the pedants who count number of Customs/Migration posts one has to go through I felt that two would stop any argument. It's a daft question anyway.Surely if you sailed (non-stop) it would only be one. Get on a boat in Oslo and cross into PRC at the end of the voyage.
Two; by land.Heard an interesting question the other day.
“How many national borders do you have to cross to drive from Oslo to Hong Kong?”.
