Great idea for a thread, Pax. :tu:

I discovered Google Earth some years ago and went absolutely nuts with it. I spent many hours hunting down significant historical sites in the Middle East and environs, so I could easily present a tediously long list. Don't worry, I won't. A sampling will suffice, however.

Some Miscellaneous Sites

  • Meroë pyramids: 16˚56'19.4"N 33˚44'57.54"E (contemporary to Egypt's Dynasty 25 and later)
  • City of David: 31˚46'28.65"N 35˚14'09.23"E
  • Megiddo: 32˚34'41.62"N 35˚10'10.25"E
  • Göbekli Tepe: 37˚13'26.50"N 38˚55'20.95"E
  • Catalhöyük: 37˚39'56.91"N 32˚49'41.48"E
  • Vesuvius: 40˚49'16.78"N 14˚25'32.91"E
  • Circus Maximus: 41˚53'11.75"N 12˚29'04.71"E

Some Egyptian Sites

  • Unfinished obelisk: 24˚04'37.35"N 32˚53'43.93"E
  • Great Aten Temple: 27˚38'57.30"N 30˚54'14.35"E
  • Umm el-Qaab: 26˚10'29.80"N 31˚54'29.39E
  • Hatshepsut mortuary temple: 25˚44'17.64"N 32˚36'24.85"E
  • Malqata Palace: 25˚42'55.17"N 32˚35'27.80"E
  • Deir el Medina: 25˚43'40.87"N 32˚36'04.87"E
  • Senusret III pyramid: 29˚49'08.39"N 31˚13'31.83"E

Thanks, I just started using GE, so it's still interesting... Thanks for sharing those coords...

I must be doing something wrong, I can't get them to work... :hmm:

Heres my Vesuvius... 40°49'17.33" N 14°25'39.33" E - it works for me

Your Vesuvius doesn't 40˚49'16.78"N 14˚25'32.91"E - is it the wrong degree symbol?
