As they are so spread apart, I'd propose to include all 7 instead of one.

Yeah I think that makes sense, the more accurate we can make it the more useful it will be when we all visit :)

Perhaps one for nfmungard, on the maps at the moment when you click on the location dots the caption loads up and stays up until you click on the cross.
That isn't really a problem on a desk/laptop but on mobile devices it can be a little frustrating as you have to zoom out (sometimes a very long way if the title is long), in order for the cross to come on the screen.

Is it anything we have an element of control over? For example could we make it so that a double tap will remove the bubble?

Found it (I think). Location is now corrected on our map. It's a stretch of land from the Ice cap north of Kangerlussuaq (and its international airport) westwards to the sea.
Those who have been on a 5hr tour to the Ice Cap from the airport on the dirt road, seem to have reached the core zone! About 10,000 people per year do so, according to the nomination file.

Unfortunately I did only a shorter tour from the airport (many flights are delayed there), the 2hr Musk Ox Safari. This does not reach the ice sheet, but it does make a stop at a viewpoint. Another near miss for me..

Come to think of it, I'd like to repost an idea by (I believe) Jasam in our whatsapp group: we should have T-shirts with prints like "Are we in the core zone yet?" (Or, slightly off topic, "Show me your OUV")

Just kidding, I'll correct them

Thanks Zoe, I've added them. Gathering from the meagre documentation available, it is indeed likely that they all are separate locations.
