Atlantis disappears again … but this time it’s all thanks to Google

Google Earth has updated its map, which removes the mystery of Atlantis and gives a 'clearer view' of Earth's subterranean landscape

After three years, Google Earth map has finally been updated to remove a gridlike pattern which sparked rumors that the underwater city of Atlantis had been found.

The exciting ‘non-discovery’ was made in 2009 when eagle-eyed internet users spotted a large grid on the seafloor that looked strikingly like the fabled city. Google was quick to explain that the misrepresentation was caused by overlapping datasets, and Atlantis had not been found, but the map remained – until now.

This week, Google announced that to mark the third anniversary of Google Earth, it had released a major update that promises to give users a ‘clearer view’ of Earth’s subterranean landscape.

The new update, known as bathymetry, is the product of Google’s collaboration with Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the US Navy, NGA and GEBCO (along with contributions from a few other organizations) that promises Google’s ‘most accurate view of the seafloor to date.’

The original version of Google Ocean was a newly developed prototype map that had high resolution but also contained thousands of blunders related to the original archived ship data,’ said David Sandwell, a Scripps geophysicist, in a statement.

‘UCSD undergraduate students spent the past three years identifying and correcting the blunders as well as adding all the multibeam echosounder data archived at the National Geophysical Data Center in Boulder, Colorado.’

    Hi Josh:
    I just wanted to let you know that I love the show! I was looking for a PDF of “The Gods of Eden” when I came across your reading of it on Youtube. I almost didn’t listen to it (I really wanted a PDF), but I’m damn glad I did.
    You’re right on the money about Jonsey, I’ve also heard some of his stuff. I suppose he is a good starting-point if you don’t know anything about what’s really going on, but I’ve also been researching this stuff for the past 25+ years – - especially the hidden technology aspect and deep black projects.
    I really love your style man, you insert explicatives where needed and really don’t overuse them. The dingbats that want you to curtail who you are really need to grow up. Do they think they are married to you?
    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve busted out laughing at something you’ve said. And I mean loud, attract attention from 60′ away, fucking belly-laughs.
    Don’t let the IDIOTS get to you. You’re a breath of fresh air as far as I’m concerned. If other people can’t accept you for who you are, they can listen to someone else.

    P.S. Thanks for keeping the post office box open. I’ve been out of work for a long ass time, but I’ll see what I can do to help you out – probably not much, but something.

    Love ya Bro. Keep getting the word out.
    Nikola T.
