Response to How Microsoft Expediamaps Changed Its URL to Hide Longitude/Latitude

 

From that you can see that latitude
27.980665215563927

Longitude:
86.92149463948968


Assuming dd.dddd, the above coordinates go out 15 and 14 decimal places, respectively. Given roughly 70 miles to each degree latitude, even four decimal place 'accuracy' will mark one's position down to less than 10 feet. Another 10 decimal places gets one down to the atomic level!
