The new discoveries extend the area of geoglifos east, west, and south, including just across the border in Bolivia. Download brazil_geoglifos.kml placemarks for Google Earth. Read article.
2014.02.14 - Updated archaeogeodesy.xls v2014 includes the new geoglyphs and additional sites worldwide. The Excel applet provides numerous ancient astronomy research functions and calculates arc distances and bearings for
three sites, providing coordinates for mounds,
pyramids, monuments, and other sites worldwide.
