Title: Identifying rudimentary shapes from satellite
Post by: nicephotog on 30/07/2009 08:08:03
I was taking a look in google earth at what archeology sites were like at points where the ground had not been disturbed and reached. At various points in various countries but admittedly at either 300ft or 100M on the scale legend in Google-Earth it does not allow closer evaluation and is only worth continuing to look over small areas if there are consistent shapes and terrain matches.
E.G. a Harrapan Indus city in India being unearthed shows at 100M it is effectively possible to see into the soil and short grass the pattern of walls and buildings.

But older communities such as settlements and lone building areas are interesting to suspect e.g. Somalia with the worlds biggest stone age "brick" as seen from space approx. 40M x 40M x 40M and other odditties of formation.
The shape of stones with right anglular tendency in the region is often(common), but these are littered excessively and it should be seen where the "place" isn't(remoteness).
I think i'd get bored there too , and also scratch my head and wonder why i did that also.

Heres a Thailand hill and some .kmz places (ZIP 2Mbyte) for google earth with respective photo JPEGs from google earth(Somalia and Thailand).
There is plenty more suspicious activity from bc in Somalia in various forms around 10 - 20 Km apart but that best left for discussion. These appear that something may have at least modified them if they could not move them in Somalia.
Of the Thai area , it appears it may have been modified into the rock also , not a complete attempt particularly to commit removal/move.
Do these classify as making any sense as something? (



If that is right send me a complete insignifying full envelope:

I just changed my hosting company recently(so i could use and demonstrate J2EE 5 on Tomcat 6) and hadn't put the zip(2.3Mb) back along with the pictures.

There back there now.

The zip shows other geological shapes i cannot say are all that likely to be natural though against the size scale they have an immense magnitude(no wonder if they are not natural that someone gave up on it, theyr'e just a criminal size at it).
