I don't understand what you mean by Mathematica not supporting 15 
digits.  On most platforms, Mathematics supports approximate numbers 
with roughly 15 digits (unless you force higher precision); it's just 
that the default display of numbers only shows 6 digits.  But you can 
change the display by wrapping the number with NumberForm.

Nonetheless, I wonder what kind of output device you intend to use that 
can distinguish points apart to that high a precision!

These data represent the latitude an d longitude of world.

So, I need to precisely paint those coordinate in a 3D space as a tiny 
point,

perhaps the method ListPoint3D to be used.However, it seems that 
ListPoint3D

does not support morn than 6 significant digits. So, can anyone help me ?
