#1: The confluence point lies in this pond in a small wetland area - near the center of this photo

(visited by Ross Finlayson)

24-May-2018 -- While in the Indianapolis area, I knew that I had to visit its unusual Degree Confluence Point, which happens to lie in a small wetland pond, sitting among an expanse of office parks and mini-malls. After negotiating Indianapolis’s impressive maze of freeways, I ended up in the parking lot for Jaggers restaurant, just west of the pond. (This appears to be the most convenient place to park, so a tip for future visitors: Ask your navigation system to route you to “Jaggers restaurant, Noblesville, Indiana”.)

As previous visitors had noted, the point lies just west of the center of the pond. By standing on the western edge of the pond, I was able to get within 48 feet (+/- GPS error of 8 feet) from the point.

Just before I left, a heron came by and stood in the pond, just feet away from the Degree Confluence Point!
