It´s time to meet again!
Welcome to MeetSomeWhere.eu
This small application has arisen from the spontaneous idea to find a place to meet for a small or big family gathering. The idea was to find a place that is equally far away for all participants.
After a few discussions of how to tackle the problem mathematically correct, we actually got a simple solution for three participants. We declared the earth to be a flat disc and calculated the center of the circle on which all departure points lie. A point was therefore found very quickly!
The positive side effect: you will get to places that you would have probably never seen otherwise.
This website has been created based on this true story. It tries to solve the problem a bit more comprehensive and mathematical though (the earth is not a flat disc anymore).

Here we are
Just CLICK on the point to see some nice places around.
Green, or ecological point
The minimized sum of distances.
Blue, or 'fair' point
All participance have almost the same distance to the point.
The best departure point to meet, if the sum of distances to is minimized.
Find with some good luck a nice place to meet.
Meet somewhere in the middle between all departure point
