Thank you; I am aware of the Bonani, et al, paper. For the sake of discussion, I will accept the figures provided.
Given the following two (2) data points:
(1) ”The latitude of 29° 58’ 44” N is the original latitude of the building when it was constructed, and the figure you quote is a modern value. The difference between the two is due to tectonic plate movement since the pyramid's construction, which is considerable.
The movement of the North African plate is detailed here [en.wikipedia.org] * and the pyramid is currently over 100 m away from where it was when it was built, when latitude is being considered.”
(2) ”…the Great Pyramid range between 2870-2640 BCE, which is the date period of construction…”
The Wikipedia article link* references ”Huang, Zhen Shao (1997). "Speed of the Continental Plates””, which states the Absolute Velocity (cm/yr) for the African Plate as ~2.15. Calculation of the distance between your published construction coordinate (1) and the Dash revision [26FEB18] indicates a distance of 0.1629 km (= 16290 cm).
5559 – 2870 = 2689
The data is in conflict by +/- two and one-half millennia.
