Hi Andy,

Your point re coordinate on other worlds is well made, I'm afraid we have
had little input from experts in planetary science, would it be appropriate
to say that largely best practice is to use the specific planetocentic
coordinate systems  lat.long ?

Wikipedia is quite transparent i would say....

Returning to my point about coordinates on other globes (did anyone
see that? I've seen no responses), would you say those on Wikipedia
are "largely invisible on the web not accessible behind opaque service
interfaces"?
