I actually found what you are referring to, as it is blatantly obvious once you get in the general area. I don't think it is supposed to be there. For
one, it is semi-transparent, and so cannot be anything on the ground. My guess is that it is probably, like you said, some type of error. What end the
error is on is anyone's guess, but it is definitely an artifact of some type.
The thick line doesn't appear on Google maps, as I just checked. I see what you were saying about the wave patterns though, and that is a bit strange.
It really does almost look like a digital paint swipe, as you mentioned. I just don't see how it could be anything other than an artifact.
I couldn't see the shadow you were referring to, although it seems as if there is a shadow around the entire line. To really see the transparency you
have to find the right zoom height.
