This image taken from Google Earth is part of a collection compiled by Paul Bourke that attempts to reveal the fractals of Earth. A 'fractal' if you don't already know; is a recurring pattern ie theoretically you can keep zooming in to an area, and it will be similar to the zoomed out area - which is great in mapping terms as we really only need to map the Earth at the highest level.. and just make up the rest!
