Standing the Watch 2000

Full-page graphic/poster the Union-Tribune would publish annually to track San Diego-based Naval groups at sea. Coordinates would be published in the Metro section every few days so friends and family of sailors could chart their progress (a la "Battleship"). After 9.11.2001, the U-T stopped this service. Lots of work went into this, verifying the source TIFF with actual latitude and longitude.
