Google Ocean: Atlantis 'found off Africa' turns out to be boat mapping lines


www.telegraph.co.uk

But the criss-crossing lines, located 600 miles west of the Canary Islands, were today explained by Google as sonar data collected as boats mapped the ocean floor.

A spokeswoman said: "It's true that many amazing discoveries have been made in Google Earth including a pristine forest in Mozambique that is home to previously unknown species and the remains of an Ancient Roman villa.

"In this case, however, what users are seeing is an artefact of the data collection process.

"Bathymetric (or sea floor terrain) data is often collected from boats using sonar to take measurements of the sea floor.

"The lines reflect the path of the boat as it gathers the data.

I have no idea if that information was already posted here, so if it was just remove the thread please.

I have to admit that from the begining I was sure that it would be really strange to find the Atlantis (if ever existed) in that location.

now, I am only trying to figure out if it was a PR action taken by the Google adv specialists or it was as they explain so.

the tracks of the boats? pretty difficult to belive so. how many pictures were taken to show a map? and why there are no more parts like this one. I belive they use the same technical solutions for other maps too.

strange indeed.
