Dear all,

I checked a world map and realized that Tonga Trench lies
near 20S176W, i.e. latitude -20, longitude 184. The labels
in the file library/base/data/quakes.tab got latitude
and longitude mixed up. (Latitudes should always be within
+-90 anyway :-) Thanks for your attention.

BTW, it would be nice if there are more real-world sample
data files with categorical data
