  • Center, Colorado

    If anyone can say for 100% certain what are the numerable circular structures surrounding the town of Center CO, and other nearby towns, you'd settle an agument I'm having. Thanks!

    (they show up particularly well in the USGS 1m Ortho dataset).

    Circular irrigation. See previous topic on this, concerning comparable structures in Lybia. Or use Google . Steven

      There are definately circular structures but they are nothing more than irrigation circles. You can even see the irrigation equipment in some of the circles. We also have these in Kansas but the are not as well contrasted as these in Colorado.

        Thanks all! We don't have anything of this sort in the UK (we get more than enough rainfall not to need artificial irrigation&#33 so it was all a bit mysterious.

        I did try Googling but unfortunately "Center Colorado" and similar is just a bit too generic to return any meaningful results.

        Thanks again
