If not feasible for an “African’ visa at this stage, it will be greatly appreciated to at least get a ‘Maritime’ visa!

]]>It all depends on the measurement resolution that is used. If this is in the hundreds of kilometers, then the smaller number would apply as the coastline could be estimated using a few straight lines.

Dropping down to a few kilometers, smaller features like bays need to be taken into account and many more straight lines are needed. If the resolution is in meters then individual rocks start to get mapped and the coastline length starts to get really big. One can go even smaller where the individual grains of sand come into play….. It is called the Coastline Paradox.

Think I should also just rather stick to maintaining work/life balance [😊]
