Where on (Google)Earth? #52

September 27, 2007

It’s been a while…Where on (Google)Earth is back home for a visit.

Ron included a quote from Conrad’s book ‘The Heart of Darkness’ as a clue for Wo(G)E #51. A brief period of procrastination provided enough time for me to do a little research, which narrowed down my search, and then I found it (it was the Niger River delta). I couldn’t think of any interesting clues for #52, so I’m just gonna show it straight up.


I’ll think of some clues if need be. But I don’t think this one will be too difficult. It’s an old-school map view (about 60 km across the entire image).

    Do you want to maybe slap a Schott Rule on that, cause otherwise it’s gonna be a very brief visit… :-)

    yes, of course…the Schott Rule is in effect…if you’ve never heard of the Schott Rule, then you can go ahead and guess right away

    The Empty Quarter of Saudi Arabia (18°58′ N 50°19′ E). I headed for the Taklamakan desert first, though.

    The next one can be up to you, Brian.

    Kent…yep, that’s right.
    I was hoping to get people lost in the Sahara for a while.

    I’ll put up #53 later today.
