I'm guessing an outhouse at the Mars location and a canopic jar of Khufu's toenail clippings buried in the sand at the Venus location.
Doesn't it seem odd, that according to Atahmose's theory the locations of Mars and Venus in his "Giza as a map of the solar system" should be left utterly devoid of any monuments? You have to interpolate the sides of two pyramids to arrive at some blank spot in the desert floor to deduce the orbits of two out of the five planets he believes are mapped there. Hmmm.
Please note Im not taking sides in this debate just enjoying myself with the maths play but if you want to know my view i can sun it as follows. My view is simply this the numbering/ measurement system we use today is inherited from an ancient designed numbering system which was designed with careful meticulous purpose to fulfil a specific Ancient purpose, a purpose conventional (publically) communicated knowledge doesn't recognise or know about.
Heck, use Euler's Number in place of Phi and divide it into the square root of 8 -
Below I did a quick scale job and thought that this was correct but after checking the actual measurements from Petrie's data it showed it was in error. It looked good but was wrong.
Don't be shy start a thread here and tell us about it - not in this thread as it might be deemed off topic.
√8 = 2.8284271247461900976033774484194
Euler's number = 2.7182818284590452353602874713527
Ratio = 2.8284271247461900976033774484194
/ 2.7182818284590452353602874713527 = 1.0405201900457777927163048866327
This is close to 440 / 411.04 and √3 / Phi ? I suggest you learn how to divide. LOL
What a maroon.

I can also use this data to calculate
the length of the Pyramid’s sides and its
angles. The Lehner-Goodman estimates
for the casing lengths compared with
that of Petrie, Cole, and Dorner are
in the table on the right. Petrie’s and
Dorner’s measurements fit comfortably
inside the Lehner-Goodman ranges.
Lehner-Goodman and Petrie differ in
the mean of all four sides by only 1.8
centimeters (0.75 inches). One of Cole’s
measurements, however, falls outside
the Lehner-Goodman ranges (in italics).

Not to rain on anyone's parade, but seeing a set of hypothetical calculations carried out to ten decimal places based the Giza pyramids is pure fantasy. The Great Pyramid is not a perfect pyramid, from a mathematical point of view. It's peak is off center. It's four sides do not form a perfect square.

Here is how significantly the OP's version of the Giza plateau strays from the actual plateau:
The image of the plateau in the background is from the GPMP mapping project (Lehner, et.al.).
The dimensions given by the OP for his plan are 1732 cubits x 1417.5 cubits. This appears to come from the work of John A.R. Legon. He cites Petrie as his source. Petrie's survey (1880's) has been superseded by the GPMP survey. Legon AFAIK is the only person to transcribe Petrie's survey numbers into a reconstruction of the plateau albeit containing all of Petrie's surveying errors.
The ratios produced by the OP can't be produced by the actual dimensions of the plateau. They are simply fantasy.
AERA GPMP map.
Oriental Institute GPMP map.
The fit of the 1978 topographic map with Petrie is not good, surprisingly with regard to the proportions of the rectangle formed by the centres of GI and GII. Using Petrie's measures we have 1 : 1.058, about the same on the satellite photo, but 1 : 1.016 on the map.There are various other peculiarities. For example, GIII is 15' east of north and this seems to have been greatly exaggerated by whoever drew the map.I can only conclude that the published GPMP map was assembled from various excavation reports. Whatever the source of GPMP pyramid positions they do not coincide with Petrie, who remains our most authoritative source.

IT IS ALMOST A PERFECT 9 BY 11 RECTANGLE AND I WILL SHOW YOU HOW AND WHY THAT IS SO IMPORTANT
