Wonderful. Thanks.

That only reflects that the software I used has "printf ("%f")" 
somewhere. What matters more is the stated accuracy of the map 

    Horizontal positions are specified in geographic coordinates, that
    is, latitude and longitude. Latitudes are given to the nearest
    0.000278. Longitudes are given to the nearest 0.000278. Latitude and
    longitude values are specified in Decimal degrees.

That's in reaction to your map going about 200 meters south of where it 
is supposed to be in some areas 8-)
