Google Earth: the photo interpretation challenge

Remote control for virtualized desktops

... or rather we can't, because if we did, how would you lot get your afternoon's entertainment?

Nope, it's up to you lot to interpret the evidence. We reckon we've got it cracked and it took us just 30 minutes to identify all the features/facilities shown without any prior knowledge. Mind you, we've got the internet on our side, which is something they didn't have back in 1943, and we also had the original .kmz reference, which made it pretty straightforward.

No such luck for you lot. Suffice it to say the facility is in the US of A. No prizes here - just a bit of fun, but let's see how quickly you can set Stuart Dempsey straight. Don't forget Saddam Hussein's menacing WMD, either. Any ideas? Full answers tomorrow.

And, finally, speaking of fun, here's the latest reader self-sighting on Google Earth. The attached photographic evidence - allegedly taken on the same day as the Google satellite passed over - is pretty compelling, we must say:

Yes, the evidence is pretty compelling

Thanks very much too Mark Ahern for that. By our reckoning, Mark lives in the mountains somewhere to the east of the Chinese town of Urumqi. Looks pretty cold out there mate - wrap up warm. ®
