Which Way Is Up?

Tags: Magnetic North, Polar Shift

 

Interesting article here from the Guardian on a polar shift that appears to be underway and accellerating. There are obviously massive implications for a shift in magnetic north for navigation and travel, but did you know this this includes unique challenges for real estate professionals too? The old 'metes & bounds' practice of defining property lines still very much applies today, but it requires surveyors to have a common reference point for magnetic north. If that point is a moving target, it will have interesting ramifications for property descriptions.
