Nazca Lines and Geoglyphs

Take off from SPZA (Maria Reiche Neuman) and head roughtly WNW. As soon you get enough altitude, you will quickly see the lines covering the desert, most of it to the west of the highway (1S according to Google Maps).

I had no idea the lines were that bright!

Sadly most of the geoglyphes aren’t visible because of the ground texture resolution is too low :frowning:

Yeah, only after viewing the footage during editing I started do “see” them. Afterall, these satellite images are of higher resolution mostly on populated areas.

Was disappointed when I flew over these in my global tour. Hopefully they’ll spend some time to fix these like they have other heritage sites.

Sorry to hear that, but I can’t agree. From the point of view of someone who started playing Flight Simulator in a black and white wireframe view, being able to even see the shape of my building textured in the ground (the autogen buildings misses completely), I still feel mind blown. But hey! There’s still much room to improve!

:smiley: Fair enough. Yes even compared to FSX which I played quite a bit, it is amazing!

But still, they could do better here, and really should. Nazca is such a one-of-a-kind place in the world. Even though lots of lines are of quite good visibility, most animals/figures are not.
