(Mars) Rectilinear surface patterns
An urban sprawl, By Nathan Schoeller



This is an area which contains numerous rectilinear surface
patterns. These features range from 15 to 30 Meters across, and
most have a common directionality, running North/South -
 East/West. The objects that comprise these surface patterns are
heavily eroded and covered in a great amount of sediment.  Below
Are three sections of this area, including a close up view, and
a context image for better interpretation.

Upper section

At first, one may see this area (above) as natural patterned
terrain, But on closer view, you see this is NOT your average
terrain. This area has many sharp angles and edges, all running
in a uniform direction, similar to what you would see in a
typical "neighborhood" setting.  Also, looking at the close up
view of a section of this terrain, you see no image artifacts or
scan lines to potentially corrupt the image. WYSIWYG

Middle section

This is another large area a few Kilometers away. You can see
the patterns are very similar, and there edges/sides, run in the
same North/South - East/West direction...DISTINCTLY separate
from the natural flow of the terrain.  There are also more
rectilinear formations sparsely scattered in between the Three
large sections displayed on this page, as well as on several
additional nearby images, (although not as clear).

Lower section

This section is slightly different, but only by the overall
smaller size of the objects.

Upper section - Extra enhancement

"There is no natural explanation for what you are seeing"

"These rectilinear objects, do NOT align with the (natural) flow
of the terrain"

The objects that form these patterns become less regular toward
the top, perhaps caused by being buried deeper.

Comparison of images

Jersey City, New Jersey
This is a comparison of These objects/buildings, and a
section of Jersey City, New Jersey.  This image allows
you to quickly see and compare Urban geometry.

There are several other MOC images within the proximity of this
image, that may have similar rectilinear patterns with lesser
degree of clarity, But it is important to note that these
anomalous patterns are sparse, and can be easily confused with
the natural terrain.
