Why six digits of precision for the location of a city? Vancouver spans from 49.1997 N to 49.3141 N, and from 123.2646 W to 123.0234 W. Is it important that the location provided is an older house on Cambie Street that needs a new roof?

If you're going to be that precise, it would make sense to use a municipal landmark like Vancouver City Hall (49.2609, -123.1140), and even that doesn't merit 6 digits because the fourth digit changes from one side of the building to the other. Six digits would pinpoint the position where someone is standing within a room. In fact, it's enough to distinguish between a person's left and right shoulder.

Precision does not equal accuracy. When providing the location of a city, anything more than two digits is not significant. To specify a building, four makes sense. Six digits of precision only makes sense in the other direction, distinguishing the position of distant stars.

Whoa, that's near my house in Vancouver and our roof is not that old!:) Thanks for pointing out that four decimal places are not significant and should be rounded off. On the other hand, it's impressive that it is that accurate and i imagine Vancouver engineers, house and road builders would need to be that accurate for construction purposes.
