Modern Nazca

Nazca Lines in Peru is a very well known and one of the most mysterious archaeological site. Dating back more than 2000 years, the Nazca geoglyphs are impressive figures etched into the ground and visible from space, including straight lines, geometric designs and pictorial representations. There are more than 800 straight lines, some of which are 48 km long.

Nowadays, man is building new Nazca Lines all over the world, also visible from space. Often abandoned, sometimes underused, these Modern Nazca Lines, all taken from a height of 5km using satellite views from Google Earth, reveal the full extent of man's impact on landscapes.
