Google Earth Fractals

We’ve all seen how beautiful our world can be, largely due to being able to view any location through the lens of Google Earth. Paul Bourke has a website dedicated to find fractal designs in various places, one of which is Google Earth. He’s collected 25 locations so far, and the imagery is amazing.


To go with the photos, Paul has uploaded KMZ files for each of them. For example, you can use this KMZ file to view the above image in Google Earth.
Great work Paul!

  1. Very nice. Would be even nicer if someone put all 25 locations in a single kmz file. But that’s ok, click, download, load, 75 times… I’m workn’ on it!
