Is there anyway to fix the lat and long these pages?

It seems the Sonoran desert has a lot more diversity than one would have thought. I know the answer is probably going to be "contact the owners".

There are a lot more mountains incorrectly located in the same area.

Those coords appear to be the default if no one specifies them.
Contacting the owners is one way.
Or if you (or someone else) lined up the correct coords with the various pages and reported it here, the elves would be happy to make the changes. We're much too lazy (and underpaid) to track down all the coordinates ourselves.

I'm currently having a separate problem, I've found that 10 of my 150 photos have coordinates that seem to have either a) moved a hundred miles or so in my absence or b) just created coordinates for themselves in the wrong place. For example I found the coordinates out in the ocean, on the wrong sides of mountains or in entirely the wrong state. Given that I do the coordinates via the little map rather than with numbers I can't see how this would happen.

This has happened to me several times, too, in cases where I am almost positive I entered the right coords originally.

I have started messaging page owners about this issue. Perhaps people could see if any of their pages show up in this area and if so, fix the coordinates? The same goes for peak pages too! Thanks!
