Fractal Patterns in Nature Found on Google Earth
Paul Bourke is a Research Associate Professor at the University of Western Australia. He is also a Director at iVEC, an organization dedicated to providing supercomputing capacity and eResearch services to Western Australian researchers.
Since October 2010, Bourke has been documenting fractal patterns in nature as found on Google Earth. On his site, he has a comprehensive gallery of satellite imagery that shows these dazzling patterns along with the requisite links to the KMZ files. This allows users to see the locations for themselves on Google Earth.
Below is a small gallery of this ongoing project. Submissions are welcome and the Sifter highly recommends you check out the entire gallery at:
