28. Sure. I type Damascus into Google Maps.

Pops right up.

I could point out its location on an empty map, but I'd be off a bit, I'm sure, as most people would. It doesn't matter. I can get a map, or a satellite view, and zoom in to see individual buildings there.

It is important for people to know generally where Syria is in the Middle East. It is less important for them to be able to put their finger exactly on a map. It's much more useful to call up a map and see it and its relationship to other places on a professionally created map.
