GIS SITES had previously posted the Maxim Magazine/Google Earth article where to celebrate Maxim's 100th issue a large replica of the cover with Eva Longoria was created just outside Las Vegas (see picture above). As Google Earth becomes the newest geek tool, it was bound to happen that odd things would be discovered and posted on the web, which I'm all for. The latest find is what might be a Chinese tank training base which a German Blogger found with the Google Earth application. The image shows what appears to be a huge scale model of a disputed military zone which is a region occupied by China but claimed by India near north central India.

GIS SITES noticed that the first article, from the Google Earth Blog had posted this article about 2 weeks before ABC NEWS and various mainstream media picked it up.

Also, rock band AUDIOSLAVE is following in Longoria's tracks and using Google Earth to promote their new album.
