World’s biggest tire graveyard

Post by Mark

The Daily Mail Online have an article on the tire graveyard out in Sulaibiya. According to the article the tire graveyard is so big it can be seen from space. That’s not really true though since the tire graveyard is actually visible on Google Maps which is not really the same as being seen from space. A bit exaggerated but then again this is the Daily Mail. You can check out their article [Here]

    Mark seems Google maps updated their imagery. They now made dirt roads to split the piles (probably after the fire, so flames don’t spread and are easier to contain). If they shape every pile to look like a country they can replicate ‘The World’ in Dubai.

    Google Maps uses satellite imagery.

    And satellites orbit the Earth in space.
