PLot the following Latitude and longitude coordinates on a map. When the coordinates are on a map they are supposed to represent something. Please help. The points are as follows:

23.1N 75.1W
26.2N 79.6W
24.5N 85.3W
31.1N 89.6W
40.1N 82.9W
25.4N 76.9W
24.9N 82.6W
26.3N 88.6W
37.0N 87.0W

I have them on the map. I am just not sure what it is supposed to be. Any ideas would be helpful.

Thanks for all your help. I think it is the path of Hurricane Katrina

I'm sorry -- but I completely misread your longitude numbers. I thought the first two-digit number was the number of the question -- not part of the coordinates.

I goofed -- and I apologize.

You're probably right about those points marking the path of Katrina.
