I originally had a regular octahedron - a polyhedron with eight faces, twelve edges, and six vertices in mind: a Platonic solid composed of eight equilateral triangles, four of which meet at each vertex - the dual polyhedron of a cube. [study.com]
None-the-less, I trust your recommendation of the more exotic cuboctohedron, as a more suitable model and look forward to commentary. From the former, summarized thus: Based on the mean circumference of the Earth -- 21600 nautical miles -- 1xNauticalMile, therefore, is the distance of 1min. of latitude anywhere on the Earth, or 1min. of longitude along the equator -i.e. 1° arc. The South side base of G1 = 1/8 NauticalMile...
ps. Surely a much studied object in that regard, I am curios to know how the sarcophacus of G1 shapes up as 'the key of measure' for the monument it occupies.
