HELP! Give to the Poor/Crime Pays/Lightbringer in Alik'r Desert

Can anyone that is familiar with Alik'r please tell me where they know the merchant/beggar/campfire to spawn?

These three achievements share spawn points in every single zone. I have completed all zones except for Alik'r Desert, despite having traveled to the indicated points on my Destinations addon since the very beginning! It is extremely odd that despite doing the exact same thing I did for every other zone in the game, I have not gotten one hit in Alik'r. This makes me think that the points I have are wrong, or worse, that I am somehow glitched and this achievement is not completeable for me.

Indeed, one of the Destinations points is in the middle of the desert instead of on the road, and one is in the ocean! Seems unlikely. The problem is, I cannot find a single recent verified map/coordinate on the internet that I haven't already checked. It is also odd that I have traveled the entire map without ever spawning one instance, because Alik'r is my Cadwell Gold zone, so it is very empty from other players spawning, and I have gone in the middle of the night too!

Here is my map. The red circles are where Destinations says these achievements spawn. The green flags are my custom pins based on what I have read from the limited information on the internet.

Help would be greatly appreciated as I am incredibly frustrated.

    Destinations might be marking the wrong places, since the map for Alik'r was recently changed, making the area smaller:

    This is exactly why the points are incorrect, thank you. Destinations needs to be updated for Alik'r.

    For anyone who finds this thread, having the same problems, I'm going to post my finalized map of points that I am sure exist on my thread over here: http://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/225028/help-give-to-the-poor-crime-pays-lightbringer-in-alikr-desert#latest

    I know it's a late reply, but I just recently found out that they changed Alik'r Desert in size.
    I was going through surgery at the time so I didn't have a chance to correct the pins at the time, as I would need access to both the old and new size of the map to convert correctly.
    I have been busy finding all the achievements, collectibles and fishing spots again, AND adjust them accordingly.
    All quests have to be grabbed all over to get the correct coordinates though.

    @SnowmanDK Hopefully in the short-term (while you're looking for the new coordinates) the before/after maps that I posted above can be used to do a sweeping coordinate transform of the existing points :)

    @Enodoc Well I already updated all achievements collectibles and fishing points. The reason that the quest pins have to be re-grabbed is that the map has been shrunk down. The coordinates furthest from the center of the new map has to be moved about 75% towards the center on the x coordinate but only about 5% on the y coordinate. Those closest to the center needs to be moved LESS than 0.5% in both directions. I am usually ok at math, but here I come out short. I can't find a way to "just" convert all coordinates as the offset vary a lot. I saw @Garkin mention at some point that he estimated that the map is only about 83% of it's original size. It was also mentioned that the only point that remains the same is the exact center of the map.
