Potential Authentication Proxy “work around” for getting Unicast Bridge Listing

Using Google Maps to determine GPS location
The Access Grid Node Listing lets one specify GPS coordinates of an Access Grid. These show up as a link to an appropriately centred Google Map. In future, GPS coordinates can be used for inferring time zones, drawing maps of world-wide Access Grid usage, etc. As we encourage all node listings to have accurate GPS coordinates, here's a guide to finding yours ... If you are already familiar with Google Maps and how to find your location at maximum zoom, skip to the final paragraphs of this document.
