How Geocaching Works

There is nothing hidden at the posted coordinates!
This is one in a series of many new puzzle caches that should probably be outlawed!
The series is called: F.L.O.P. -- For Lovers of Puzzles.
The cache is an easy park and grab, if you can find it... To find it, you will need to visit the coordinates in the table below using some kind of tool like Google Earth, Google Maps, or whatever you prefer.
From somewhere in space, you will be able to determine the numbers for this cache location... Look at the piece of the map depicted by the coordinates. You may need to zoom in, zoom out, rotate, etc. in order to figure out what you are looking at. When you see a pattern that looks like a number, you are there!
GeoMire discovered that I had a few issues with some of the coordinates. As a token of my appology to all of you, I have added links to the page for each set of coordinates. The zoom level is already set for you on the links. You may need to hold your head sideways and use your imagination, but you'll get it. I also reduced the difficulty.
I challenge you to first try this puzzle in its original form - copy/paste the coordinates into Google Earth or Google Maps and see if you can figure the number out. If you get stuck, then try my links.
