|Kryptos Coordinate Plot|
|An attempt at accurately plotting the enigmatic coordinates listed in Kryptos part 3.|
|Jim Gillogly's Photos|
|Renowned Kryptos luminary Jim Gillogly was able to visit Krypto in person in November of 1999 and took these numerous high-quality pictures.|

|Maps and Air Photos|
|Plot of coordinates mentioned in
Part 3 (38° 57' 6.5"N, 77° 8' 44"W, Decimal 38.9518056°N,
USGS 1:25,000 DRG Topo map from TopoZone (plotted using NAD27 datum).
Cross marker in front of CIA building is the designated coordinate.
Building outline is old (pre-1991, pre-Kryptos build-out).
Color airphoto from MapQuest, very high-res. Newer image, shows later building additions when Kryptos was added.
MapQuest will not plot a marker point on the airphoto, but it would fall somewhere in the green courtyard between the two new buildings.
Monochrome image from USGS, 8m resolution. new enough (1998) to show new buildngs, too coarse to show detail. no marker plotted on original image.

|Recovered Plaintext Sections|
| Three parts of Kryptos have been
decrypted so far.
Note: The word "iqlusion" in part one, "undergruund" in part two and "desparatly" in part three are not transcription mistakes. This is how they are actually encoded in Kryptos.
|The final remaining section (97 characters) of Kryptos begins with the letters OBKR.|
