<strong>Approximate</strong> &#8211; Could be up to 20 miles away from the actual port location.
More often it&#8217;s within a mile of the actual location. Accuracy is low due to geocoding
based on town name, use of DD.DD° or DD.DDDD° format instead of DD.DDDDDD° for latitude
and longitude values.</li>
<li>
<strong>City</strong> &#8211; Purely &#8220;there&#8217;s a port in City A, so the port XY gets the longLat of City A, often putting it on land instead of water.</li>

<li>
<strong>Jetty</strong> &#8211; 1. A structure, such as a pier, that projects into a body of water to influence the current or tide or to protect a harbor or shoreline from storms or erosion. 2. a wharf</li>
