That some fairly extensive spy satellite calibration. Perhaps they have their sats lock onto the lines and follow them like if they were locked onto a moving target?

The US just uses little cross hair targets that are a few meters across.

Why do you ff'ing care what it is? It's their territory, their soil and their technology. Intervention in other countries' domestic affairs seems to be a habit in every american.

Heh pretty much...I say let them do what every they want over there. China is pretty much the only country doing anything interesting these days. Most Americans are just not used to other countries being a larger superpower.

Invertention?

 

Intervention?

 

or do you mean discussion?

 

or

 

CONSPIRACY!

When zooming in on the "pools" (?) at the big complex with the cooling towers, it appears as though they were drawn with markers. tongue.gif

alot of the bright blue could be software error, Google does this alot where the multiple images that overlap eachother make some very interesting colors and landscapes.

But that 10 Mile Nuclear facility (the one with the water silo's) is amazingly huge, that is def water, you can see irigation paths and water spilling out into other squared areas.

I cant say much about alot of this, but I have to imagine that 18 mile grid is either like that for pre housing development / industrial etc
or the grid was created to help with Military Ballistics training.

The "Glowing Airport runway" if you zoom in on it, it looks to be riddled with holes, but it is also strange, because it almost (at major scale) looks like Reflective Panels, almost builrt like a wood floor.

Strange china, you are very strange!

Heh...OK I am bored so I bit on this...I think there is much more interesting stuff near by than those crazy lines.

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=40.452107,93.742118&hl=de&ll=39.579033,94.290333&spn=0.025932,0.025964&num=1&t=h&vpsrc=6&z=15

That construction looks interesting for example.
