Awesome thread. Pareidolia runs rampant, but trying to "see in 3D" is interesting...
Here's an old snapshot I had saved on my PC from Google Earth of a spot in the middle of Nazca...
I swear it almost looks like a little alien with tubes going through it.
Here it is colored in...
I suck at tracing, but you get it...edit on 2/15/13 by Kitora because: (no reason given)

We pretty much need access to the survey that is mentioned in this paper. I have no idea how to gain access to the actual survey, short of asking the authors for the file itself. The article is free if you search for it on google scholar. Anyone interested in this topic should read the article because it's pretty much the data you need to test this theory. Its bibliography would be a good start to grabbing other important information on the topic, for anyone interested.
The Nasca-Palpa Project: a cooperative approach of
photogrammetry, archaeometry and archaeology
KAAK, German Archaeological Institute (DAI), Bonn, Germany
Institute of Geodesy and Photogrammetry, ETH Zurich, Switzerland
In the Photogrammetry subproject, modern techniques of photogrammetry and geomatics are developed and adapted to the special requirements of the documentation and analysis of archaeological sites in the Peruvian coastal desert. The research activites encompass the enhancement of automated techniques for the analysis of aerial images of the geoglyphs, aiming at the automatic generation of digital terrain models and a complete mapping of the geoglyphs on the Nasca pampa, the combined use of laser scanning and aerial (model helicopter) photogrammetry for the recording and modeling of stone architecture at the site of Pinchango Alto, and finally the storage, management, and analysis of acquired 3D data on a GIS (geoinformation system) platform in conjunction with the development of new tools for GIS-based archaeological analysis.

It's a code.
The lines / points can only be figured out when placed into a computer and let the computer figure it out. It will re-arrange the lines into the true meaning of the code.
Possibly shapes or letters or symbols.
