Google Earth anomalies


[Read the post]


Interesting how that gallery of anomalies is all bridges, where the algorithms basically don’t understand that they’re not a part of the lower topography.


Exactly. It’s almost like they have a knowledge gap that needs to be bridged.



Well played, sir, well played.


Look up Perrine Bridge in Twin Falls, Idaho.


You say “nightmare”, I say ROLLERCOASTER!


Good old photogrammetry! It relates to the challenge of processing image prospective from overhead imagery. Google Earth does a generally admirable job and takes a few reasonable shortcuts for these kinds of situations (structures above the surface of the ground) that result in the anomalies sampled. For anyone who wants a more in-depth explanation see orthophoto and similar info.
