These may have been posted elsewhere, but I don't visit Interference or any other U2 communities anymore, so........if you're interested, here are the coordinates that were in the album:

48° 51′ 30″ N, 2° 17′ 40″ E The Eiffel Tower
34° 3′ 10″ N, 4° 58′ 58″ W Fez
42° 53′ N, 8° 24′ E the Mediterranean, between Monaco and Sardinia
25° 0′ N, 45° 00′ E center of Saudi Arabia, between Brydah and Alr Riyad
42° 36′ N, 5° 34′ W Obra Hospitalaria Nuestra Senora de la Regla, Spain
42° 21′ N, 03° 42′ W Burgos, Spain
21° 26′ 31" N, 39° 51′ 28" E Mecca
43° 9′ 43" N, 1° 14′ 14" W Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France

They were in the liner notes of the deluxe boxed-set, with the DVD and poster and hardcover book and so on.

Are they not in the standard CD?

They're in the digipack version too (that had the 32 page booklet and fold out poster.)

Thanks for figuring them out, they were driving me crazy. I managed to figure out the first one, then I got annoyed and gave up.


Also, ECHO! *fangirls you*

I thought Cadiz was supposed to be in there somewhere? Did I hear that wrong?

A satellite image of Cadiz and its coordinates is the last page of the booklet - satellite of Paris and its coords the first page. The other bunch of coords are in the middle of the booklet.

So are these collection of places supposed to mean something?!

There are places referenced in the lyrics (Paris, Cadiz, the route through France down to Spain, Fez) and I think there are some other places where they've done some work on the album at various points.
