    That is one amazing city map, but what are those empty water-blue lots?

    There are some elements of that map that seem empty, like there are supposed to be things there that are just not there.

    Some useful cartography facts:
    Circumference (C) of the Earth is about 25,000 miles or 40,000 km.
    Highest point on Earth is 5.5 miles (8.9 km) above sea level (ASL/BSL).
    Lowest point of land on Earth is 1/4 mile (0.4 km) BSL.
    Lowest elevation in the ocean is 6.8 miles (10.9 km) BSL.

    And our solar system:
    C of Jupiter = 279,118 miles (449,197 km).
    Highest mountain is Olympus Mons on Mars. It is 16 miles high (24 km) and is the size of Arizona.

    Amazing!! Sam, I think the blue lots might actually be buildings with blue roofs. If you google earth china they seem to be pretty popular out there (not sure why).

    Looks a lot like a Sim City render, sweet, though.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
