I’ve wanted to do this for ages with Distributaries. I tried to find a minimum distance solution that wasn’t OTT back when I started collecting location coordinates, but I probably wasn’t using the right vocabulary in my searches… ended up ordering them manually (!). Would like to get this in place, I think the manual ordering is part of the reason I’ve been tardy in adding more coordinates.

Ref for Distributaries, notably Sundurbans (source, jkottke‘s Twitter cover photo). Also possibly Itapu Dam and Ebro Delta.
Distributaries is a collection of river systems from around the world. I’m trying to focus on actual distributaries, but a few other types might sneak in occasionally. If anyone out there has a suggestion (for the site or for an actual river to add), I’d love to hear it via Twitter or on GitHub.
