High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Battista Agnese (c. 1500 1564) was a cartographer from Genoa, who worked in Venice. In 1525 he prepared an early map of Muscovy that was based on the geographical data, narrated to Paolo Giovio by the Russian ambassador Dmitry Gerasimov. His workshop produced at least 71 manuscript atlases of sea charts between 1534 and 1564, more cheaply than Dieppe maps but still considered of fine craftsmanship. The charts normally included latitude but not longitude, along with various decorative features.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Venera 16 (Russian: -16) was a spacecraft sent to Venus by the Soviet Union. This unmanned orbiter was to map the surface of Venus using high resolution imaging systems. The spacecraft was identical to Venera 15 and based on modifications to the earlier Venera space probes. Venera 16 was launched on June 7, 1983 at 02:32:00 UTC and reached Venus' orbit on October 14, 1983. The spacecraft was inserted into Venus orbit a day apart from Venera 15, with its orbital plane shifted by an angle of approximately 4° relative to one another probe. This made it possible to reimage an area if necessary. The spacecraft was in a nearly polar orbit with a periapsis ~1000 km, at 62°N latitude, and apoapsis ~65000 km, with an inclination ~90°, the orbital period being ~24 hours.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Yenisei Gulf (Russian: ) is a large and long estuary through which the lower Yenisei River flows into the Kara Sea. The Yenisei Gulf is formed by the river widening to an average of 50 km for up to 250 km in a roughly north-south direction, between a latitude of 70° 30' N in the area around Munguy settlement, north of Dudinka. The whole region of the lower Yenisei is bleak and sparsely inhabited, and the settlements are built on permafrost ground. There is no vegetation except for mosses, lichens and some grass. The maximum depth of Yenisei Gulf is 208 feet (63 m). The mouth of the Yenisei Gulf is roughly located at 72° 30' N, in the area of Sibiryakov Island, in the Kara Sea.

The International Date Line is displaced eastwards at this latitude to avoid the island as well as the Chukchi Peninsula on the Russian mainland. The closest land to Wrangel Island is tiny and rocky Herald Island located 60 km (37 mi) to the east. Wrangel Island is about 125 km (78 mi) wide and 7,600 km2 (2,900 sq mi) in area. It consists of a southern coastal plain that is as wide as 15 km (9.3 mi), a central belt of low-relief mountains, and a northern coastal plain that is as wide as 25 km (16 mi).

Ensomheden is the Norwegian name of the Russian island Uedineniya, Uyedineniya or Ujeninenije . It is also known as Einsamkeit Island (from the German "Einsamkeit Insel") and more rarely as Lonely Island or Solitude Island in English maps. Located in the central part of the Kara Sea, roughly midway between Novaya Zemlya and Severnaya Zemlya, its latitude is 77° 29' N and its longitude 82° 30' E.This island is barren and icy, but in the summer there is some tundra vegetation. Its length is 18.5 km and its total area is 20 km². Compared to other Arctic islands it is flat and low-lying, with some swamps and small lakes and a long spit of land on its NE side. Its highest point is only about 30 m.

Marble Point, Antarctica, is a rocky promontory on the coast of Victoria Land located at 77° 26'' S latitude and 163° 50'' E longitude. The United States operates a station at the point. The outpost is used as a helicopter refueling station supporting scientific research in the nearby continental interior such as the McMurdo Dry Valleys. Weather permitting, helicopters are able to fly in and out of the station 24 hours a day during the summer research season. Marble Point''s relatively flat terrain facilitated construction in 1957 of a now-defunct dirt airstrip.The station''s remote location and adjoining frozen sea have largely stemmed tourism in the area. However, the Russian icebreaker Kapitan Khlebnikov conducts cruises in the Ross Sea and McMurdo Sound. In 1993, the icebreaker docked at fast ice offshore Marble Point. Tourists aboard helicopters launched from the icebreaker flew excursions into the McMurdo Dry Valleys.
What are the limits of compulsory trademark features in selected countries following the continental and common law? In my work I examine the positive and negative trademark registration issues in Common and Continental Laws, which one is more attractive from the point of registration latitude for global businesses. I compare and explain which countries under different law systems are more favourable from the angle of trademark registration and compare four of them: Russian Federation, Czech Republic, the USA and Great Britain. The main trademark features I examine are the regulations regarding what can be registered and what cannot be registered in considered countries. While the special accent is made on how these requirements are applied to registration of non-traditional signs, specifically color, sound and smell.

Svalbard is an archipelago in the Arctic Ocean north of mainland Europe, about midway between mainland Norway and the North Pole. It consists of a group of islands ranging from 74° to 81° north latitude, and from 10° to 35° east longitude. The archipelago is the northernmost part of Norway. Three islands are populated: Spitsbergen, Bear Island and Hopen. The largest settlement is Longyearbyen. The Spitsbergen Treaty (1920) recognised Norwegian sovereignty over Svalbard, and the 1925 Svalbard Act made Svalbard a full part of the Kingdom of Norway. The official language in Svalbard is Norwegian, though some areas do speak Russian.
