Misplaced institutions on maps RRS feed

  • Question

  • Was perusing the site and was impressed by what I saw, but noticed that there are frequent errors.  For example, in Alabama, we find that the Algerian

    Université Abou Bekr Belkaid Tlemcen is listed in Anniston.  A colleague noted that Harvard was shown immediately north of Birmingham.  What is the cause of these issues?  Until these are cleared up, one can be sure that there will be serious doubts about the accuracy of the data and the tool.

    Thanks!
