Kurt Finds an Easter Egg in Google Earth

Kurt Schwehr (blogging at Kurt’s Weblog) posted something a couple of days ago about the recently updated pseudo-bathymetry on Google Earth (see the graphics and broader discussion at Ogle Earth, too). Dave Sandwell (David T. Sandwell, to be precise…) wrote to Kurt with some clarifications about data sources. In passing, Sandwell mentions an easter egg in the Google Earth seafloor: navigate to N0 E94.75 – not far from the epicenter of the earthquake that caused the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami – to see what may be the largest piece of geo-graffiti ever produced.
