Fractales sur Google Earth
Written by Paul Bourke Started: October 2010. Last updated: October 2012 Introduction The following is a "photographic" gallery of fractal patterns found while exploring the planet with Google Earth. Each is provided with a KMZ file so the reader can explore the region for themselves. Readers are encouraged to submit their own discoveries for inclusion, credits will be included. Self Similarity Fractals are usually associated with self similarity across scales. An example of this for a river system is illustrated below [KMZ file], clicking on an image will give the high resolution version of the image without the markings. Another way to think about whether something exhibits self similarity is if it can be interpreted to exist at different scales.
