The TWHS "Le site fossilifère de Moulendé et la pile nucléaire de Bangombé" doesn't appear on the map of Gabon, where it should be, but does appear on the map of France. I guess the nearby town of Franceville might be an explanation for this curious mistake?

Don't know if this is the right thread for actual WHS, but I think on Luther Memorials, the location here for Melanchthon's house is off - I believe it is down beside Luther's house on Collegienstrasse.

No, the site is in the right spot. But I had given it the wrong country id, so it now looks like Gabon is part of France! Have changed it now, will show after caches are refreshed.

The WHS have their own location data topic: https://www.worldheritagesite.org/forums/index.php?action=vthread&forum=2&topic=1918

Indeed. I have changed it.

Have finally managed to add the 11 probable locations of Les villes bastionnées des Pays-Bas (France), after Jasam found a good source for it months ago. They're on display at https://www.worldheritagesite.org/tentative/id/234#

The coordinates for the Mount Gay Distillery (Industrial Heritage of Barbados: Sugar and Rum) are incorrect. The current distillery is indeed located in that exact location, but the nomination rather include the historic distillery in St. Lucy, Barbados' northernmost parish, close to other components like St. Nicholas Abbey and the Morgan Lewis Windmill. Correct coordinates are: (13.2920785, -59.6134204).

Chachapoyas sites of the Utcubamba Valley:
I think Yalape is incorrectly marked. Should be -6.298567252534945, -77.88980484010897

And Coastal Lomas System of Peru - Lomas de Ancon should be -11.720897255829435, -77.16382172439181

One of the markers for Hungary's Lake Balaton uplands is out of place. The Festetics Pakace of Keszthely is located at Q6CR+9P Keszthely, Hungary (this is Google maps coordinates I'm afraid) rather than its current location well East of Lake Balaton.

Darb Zubaydah T-site in Saudi has one dot in Ethiopia. I think the correct location should be somewhere around 28.49172450174884 43.337322075045385

Thanks Liam and Wojtek. The location data have been updated (it may take a day or so to show while the website refreshes).

The recent T-list entry of the National Theatre of Guatemala apparently provides the wrong location. the coordinates point to the National Palace of Guatemala, built between 1939 and 1943.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Palace_(Guatemala)

The T-list description starts with: "The National Theater of Guatemala is located in the Miguel Ángel Asturias Cultural Center, named in honor of the Guatemalan writer winner of the 1967 Nobel Prize in Literature."
The Miguel Ángel Asturias Cultural Centre was built in the 1970s by Efraín Recinos (this is mentioned later in the T-List description).
And Wikipedia says: "The Centro Cultural Miguel Ángel Asturias, commonly called Teatro Nacional...".
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centro_Cultural_Miguel_%C3%81ngel_Asturias

A bit confusing, but the correct location should be: 14.627089, -90.517842

Yes, you are right, I had made the same remark to myself.
With the national palace it would have added a check mark for me (exterior), but not with this modern theater which I didn't even suspect existed!

I am happy to believe you & jonathanfr are right, but the ones I copied were the ones given at the official tentative page. Usually when they're not sure they don't give any or very vague coordinates.
Both sites are 2km apart... Hmm. I will add your coordinates as the text seems to indicate a modern building
