Thanks for submitting the Sanxingdui review, Zoe. I should have written one a long time ago myself, definitely a thumbs up.

Regarding the 3rd location: this website names an address (No.58 Shangye Street, Qingyang District, Chengdu City), which seems to be at a different spot. Tripadvisor has it at yet another location. At none of the three locations within Chengdu I find a hint in Google maps that a museum is located there. How sure are you about the coordinates you shared?

Looking forward to your addition for the Shu state reviews!

As for the coordinates, they are from the WHS documents. I went around the block of Shangyejie on Baidu map and there is no sign of a museum. So I suppose leave that blank until someone knows it for sure.

I was there in 2007! But I do have my pics and diary in Dutch so can fabricate something.

Thanks Hubert, I will add them! I guess one really needs to zoom in to see the different spots

When I looked at the Angolan TWHS, I noticed that a couple of coordinates are not correct. The location of Fortress S.Francisco do Penedo is actually Fortress S.Pedro da Barra.
Here the correct coordinates, from Wikipedia:

Fortress of Sao Francisco do Penedo -8.8014, 13.25028
Fortress of Sao Pedro da Barra -8.773552, 13.286174

These two are slightly incorrect:

Church of Nossa Senhora da Victoria -9.628176, 14.255169
Fortress of Massanganu -9.629411, 14.256533

We've been a bit drunk when adding these I guess. They are from wiki and they are a few km off

They are marked in Google Maps. Sometimes it is easier than you think. But maybe they have been added after our coordinates project.

Recommend the Google location northwest of what we have for Ivvavik instead of the outlines of the park we currently use.

"Locations" could also be updated with the name.

Even though the area of the Ringed Seal Archipelagos of Lake Saimaa TWHS is not yet very clear, I think our current location is not correct. It about 100 kilometres too much south. The description tells that the area contains the Linnansaari and Kolovesi National Parks and we know that these are the core areas of Saimaa ringed seals. So, I would put the location somewhere north of the Linnansaari island, for example 62.123654, 28.476443

When working on the French TWHS I noticed that our locations of Carcassonne and Albi are slightly outside the inscribed area.
Better are the following:
Albi: 43.928646, 2.143461
Carcassonne: 43.206961, 2.364539
