In the last post we discussed the importance of having a standard to rely upon. The example I used was the Prime Meridian, which is the basis for navigational and time systems around the world. Imagine the chaos that would ensue if there were not a single, unique standard to use for finding our location and determining the time. Imagine if you had to have a new set of maps with different longitude and latitude references for each country that you traveled to or flew over. There could be 200 different navigational coordinates for any given location on a map. That would be chaos.
