I have no idea what this is, any ideas? Looks like giant tubes undersea. They look rather big for lava tubes. If anyone wants to post a screen print that would be great. I have no idea how.

Here we go.

Interesting that the "tubes" continue on for a great distance and intersect with others. Also appears to be a great deal of the image blurred, perhaps on purpose?

Wow, that structures (https://www.google.de/maps/place/Isla+Cedros,+Mexiko/@27.8830533,-115.3526192,12z/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x8130ec5df6716ce3:0x473d5 967286f8b7a) are huge: > 500 m in Diameter.
Also the diameter is fairly constant across the extension of the structure.

When I examine this through Google Earth, there seems to be incredible depth around these structures, up to 13,000 feet, while some depths nearby are only 900 feet. Am guessing these are ridges could be 2 miles high.

Welcome to Artifact Generation 101 !

What one is 'seeing' is the wonderful feature called Image Enhancement, to make a lovely picture appear out of 'nothing'. Image enhancement engines allow one to take some squiggles and exaggerate the features to let you see absolutely "stunning" images :)

Things like bent roads and buildings appear (y'all recall the spat with the google MAPS bending roads and bridges when navigating around?)

The source location in the OP is re-displayed below using Google Earth Pro, with different settings of the image engine..

First one is FLAT, or as close to 'reality' as the data from 'soundings' provides:


http://chanlo.com/images/Islas-artifact-filter-off.jpg


This next one has MINIMAL enhancement:


http://chanlo.com/images/Islas-artifact-1.jpg

Now for Enhancement turned UP all the way !

Weeeee what amazing earth we live on? Hey is that Lemuria ? :)

Notice subsequently as enhancement is increased, the ISLAND bends and falls off into the SEA ! (Must be earthshifts happening, eh?)


http://chanlo.com/images/Islas-artifact-2.jpg

Face on Mars anyone? (Image IRIS enhancement software was used on that one.. as I happen to have that professional image software program, and guess what? One can put the face of Pluto on Pluto with it! (or a face on Mars) or anything with tweaking slight bumps and valleys in the image, or exaggerating contrast changes, and fool oneself into seeing whatever one wants..)

Seems to me that if one is interested in exploring a great modeler to see what it is like making very realistic images: http://pixologic.com/zbrush/features/ZBrush4R7/ Enhanced images and the tweaking thereof on powerful computers with great software lets reality be tweaked into whatever.

Image Enhancement 'truth' is very very subjective, and the operator using the enhancement software to "improve features" (read, "remove noise") has to remove bias, to get as much image 'truth' as possible.. Thing is, removing noise with narrow bandwidth filters can at times actually create it by augmenting what is not really there.

Thanks Bob for your explaination. Makes me wonder what is there to be enhanced?

Olaf
16th July 2015, 15:56
Sorry Bob. The features are present in the very first shot.
The "image enhancement" you showed in your post produces only a (mis)interpretation of the already present feature, when it tries to interpret them as shadows and lights from possible 3D structures. Nevertheless, the feature is there.

Do you think the walls/rods are an artifact from putting together image slices, as we already had some of this kind in Google earth?
Do you think, it is a result of image sharpening of a line (can be interpreted as some kind of halos on both sides as a result of oversharpening)?
Could it be walls of lava between tectonic plates, that have moved?

Google gets this technology from US military hand-me-downs if I recall correctly, and they have been shown to change the way anomalies look in the past, to make them more difficult to see. This could be a real anomaly or underwater base that Google has intentionally fudged to keep too much detail from getting out. I've heard more than once that the US military has bases on and beneath islands off the West Coast, such as under Catalina Island.

The reason the surrounding area is blurrier is ostensibly because they didn't send their ships which scan the ocean floor over those neighboring regions, but like I said, they've blurred or pixelated areas before, after previously having sharper images, so who knows what the real situation is.

This feature looks like it's near the edge of the continental shelf, or at least a large drop-off from higher elevation area into a deeper sea floor. So in page times this area was probably all above water, until the drop off of the nearby mountainside where you see a stretch of flat sea bed. That flat area that extends down the length of the shelf edge was probably a beach in former times.

I have no idea what this could be but it looks very interesting.


Also if you look at these features, they run at about 90 degree angles to the natural ridge features below them. That is not something you see real mountain ridges do.

Now that you bring it up, I see what you mean. It could be either way. The symmetry of the lower tube/canyon smacks of being man made. But, who knows. I tried to find aerial photos of lava tube formations with no luck.

Never said the lava flow or plate upthrust from the Canyon that Herve' pointed out wasn't there, just that Google Maps turns on "enhancement" which creates artifacts and distorts images. It looks like lava flows and a set of canyons. It looks like plates pulled apart.

Thing is why is one ASSUMING that the bathymetry data that Google used is accurate? Anybody actually take a look at the original source bathymetry data? Or that Google accurately rendered that data into a displayable image database? I wouldn't make that assumption.

Bathymetry: "Bathymetry is the study of underwater depth of lake or ocean floors. In other words, bathymetry is the underwater equivalent to hypsometry or topography." see http://maps.ngdc.noaa.gov/viewers/bathymetry/

(FYI - I just took an image voyage to Mars using Earth Pro and gee I found Jezus ! and another face right next to each other, all with turning on "enhancement" and processing for lights and darks afterwards. Maybe I will start a thread called FACE ON MARS-2 the sequel).

One simply can not trust using google or any other "enhancer" for "guaranteed flat true objects and features" with the enhancement features on.. Artifacts are enhanced. And one can imagine whatever they want . Folks need to go back to the original data (see the bottom of the graphic to see the source) and look at that in a good GIS viewer (if that is the format)..

I have NO trust in getting accurate "features" reliably presented. All it is good for IMHO it to show pretty pictures which later will require ACCURATE image rendering from reliable data, either LIDAR on land, or accurate bathymetry underwater.

The feature enhancement is ludicrous. Humorous at best.

Ref: LIDAR - http://www.coast.noaa.gov/dataregistry/search/collection/info/coastallidar
"Lidar (also written LIDAR, LiDAR or LADAR) is a remote sensing technology that measures distance by illuminating a target with a laser and analyzing the reflected light. Although thought by some to be an acronym of Light Detection And Ranging, the term lidar was actually created as a portmanteau of "light" and "radar"."

COMMON -- stop trusting databases to give accurate rendtions especially with 'software' that can take a bit of data and spin it any way it's algorithms tell it..

The point in the OP was to question what is being seen. A GOOGLE MAPS enhanced distorted set of imagery, based on what appears to be lava flows, tectonic movement, and a set of canyons all exaggerated by the "features" built-into the google product.

If those structures are actually showing positive relief (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terrain), then they could be underwater dikes (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dike_%28geology%29):

I don't like the enhancement either. It makes it look like the island is below the water to me. And we all know islands are above the water. I'm leaning toward fault lines. Either way, it is a huge contrast in elevation.

Magma = lava..

Lava cooling and upflowing in a canyon making for a pillow/snake like structure..

Eastern Pacific RISE: http://www.csmonitor.com/Science/2015/0206/Do-underwater-volcanoes-alter-Earth-s-climate


Tolstoy's study at the East Pacific Rise spreading ridge, offshore western South America, found connections between ice age cycles and these seafloor corrugations that extend back 800,000 years. The bands of thicker and thinner crust correspond to 100,000-year ice age cycles — the most powerful of Earth's freeze-and-thaw rhythms. When glaciers expanded and sea level dropped, more lava oozed from the ridge volcanoes, Tolstoy discovered. (When magma breaches the surface, it is called lava.) The thinnest crust, formed when eruptions slowed, matches up with eras of higher sea level. The findings were published today (Feb. 5) in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

Here's a couple more bathymetry images without google's distortion, the features ARE long where the plates have interacted:

Those are normal bottom features, not hidden cities :) Sorry Lemurians can't use a hydrophone to phone home just yet..

These places move, and this sits on the "ring of fire" as well.. volcanic action in other words.

I think it's great looking for unusual features, "discovery", solving what is causing the features is where the mystery story begins. These "features" are sitting on a spot where there is the "ring of fire" and active plate movement.. And the geometry may look fascinating.

So is this:

illustrates the type of ridging which happens is similar when the liquid cools and the formation "grows"

This type shows how the ridges appear on the "snake" formation:

It looks pretty obvious what is going on here.

You have the ground-level, and then you have structures being built up in the air over top of them, like the bridges and roads you showed. Google's software cannot distinguish two different height levels (that would take more sophisticated 3D modeling), so they make the bridges or roads conform to the ground level. It may also be possible for the ground level below to be raised up to the level of these bridges and roads.

Greetings, everyone.

Please remember to take these images with a grain of salt. 99% of the ocean floor is not mapped in detail. Google amalgamates data from many, many different sources, and most, if not all, artifacts are simply a scanning overlap or other trivial aspect of deep-water sonar scanning. It's impossible, and a bad idea, to infer anything from Google Maps regarding the ocean floor. It's fine to do research on land, where most of our imagery comes from, but the ocean floor is very, very poorly mapped. If you want to know what's down there, you have to find sonar data from other sources.

when you see the cities of the sea rise , kiss your butt good bye ( quote from an off world human) ... I remember reading in the writings of Henoch , he speaks of cities under the sea , a great culture that chooses to have nothing to do with the top side world ... if the great war happens ( the third world fire ) they will rise and join the battle to preserve the Earth ... there will be a new player in the field that humanity is not prepared to deal with = the descendants of Atlantis YES , they are still on Earth ... the great war of long ago that created the Gobi desert and Death Valley has survivors that are still on Earth , the Nordics -tall blondes and the Blue skinned people , the descendants of Atlantis and Lemuria (Mu) ...everyday discoveries are made that always come back to Henoch's words ...

The OP was asking about "what is it" being seen.

One can make an educated GUESS based on the imaging software used to find the "feature" being asked about. The original Bathymetry is needed to be accurate, else geological experience of the area would be useful for the best "guesses"..

Excuse me OLAF, I have reiterated over and over numerous times, the LAVA/MAGMA TUBE plus techtonics plus validated the canyon observation by Herve'. Other information was posted by a MOD for instance discussing DIKES as a possibility. One shows EXAMPLES to discuss possibilities. Showing possibilities IS in answer the OP, - what IS IT ? No discussion the stuff stays in speculation.

The additional information was quite clear that the graphic engine which was used to create the OP is flawed, and any data being generated is about speculation, as the graphic image is speculative at best, and misleading at worst. This is quite inline with the op and i would appreciate staying on focus - the image engine is flawed, who knows WHAT it is, the speculations are what it COULD BE by geological history - that is a solid logic to answer the questions at hand - WHAT (why it can't be determined by the OP's graphic), WHAT it COULD BE based on the geological history of the area. AND various illustrations answering the questions of the various posters. DIALOG comes from answering the questions of the various posters, and I have. Clearly with supporting data and tools for enlightenment of the readers to understand when they see an image with a question, they have to rely on accurate tools - an inaccurate tool leads to wild speculations. THAT is extremely clear to me, is it to you?

I think what Bob is posting explains why the "3D" version of the feature on Google Earth is so distorted, because of the poor rendering software that can't interpret multiple heights and has problems with shadows. But I don't believe the 2D feature on the original image is an artifact. If this feature is being "enhanced," it still has to exist to begin with, and this feature is running at 90 degree angles to the natural ridge formations underwater. I have never seen one mountain ridge running at a 90 degree angle across other other ridges.

As I pointed out earlier, this is in an area reported to have covert military activity, and also looks to be still on the continental shelf or in an area that was above water in the past, near the ancient coastline.

Thanks Silkie - its obvious that trying to provide education and step by step explanation, with some levity tossed in to lighten up is missed at times. I agree with you and explained it in my reply to the member questioning why would I explain in detail. The detail is to illustrate and demonstrate, the graphic used in the OP is speculative, and in-conclusive. I have background in various image software, and I can see as any people can, the distortion induced by the google engine. I pointed out the IRIS image processing software and the ability to play with images and create ANYTHING desired by the operator of the software, depending on how one tweaks the software - specifically the filters in IRIS are notorious for generating from NOISE, any object that one concentrates on. The google engines tweak the images to make them "stand out" and get noticed (see the bent roads for instance) where there is a difference in altitude of various parts of the image. The OP image was from the google engine. One can do a search on the internet for distortions introduced by the mapping/earth feature display engines. It is horrendous.. So with that amount of distortion potential IN the image, I showed clearly what happens with the engine, how the image changes with different settings. Map program doesn't let you change the settings, so one is stuck, with what they give you which is an enhanced version. One cannot see the valley/canyon when on looks totally FLAT. Herve' pointed out it looks like there may be a canyon there I then verified in-fact that there is.. When presented with a "what is it" one needs to use the tools available, and deal with "tool inaccuracy" and operator bias to give a rendition that is as close to TRUTH as possible. If the goal is to stay in speculative realms of hallucination, any serious researcher would not participate. To be honest in interpretation, the proper analysis procedure needs to be used. If that is too much for some, I can't solve that issue for them. Objectiveness is what I personally go for. Those who want objectiveness I will help if I can..

Magma can go anywhere there is a tear. The magma appeared to flow into the CANYON. Going up earlier in the formation, further north one sees the east-west ridges from the magma moving up from the broken crust. I showed images of what that looks like (animated). Such matches that the formation is made with magma. Over in Hawaii, the magma flowing out forms all sorts of directions and snakes. If there is an ocean bottom it goes everywhere, if there is a channel it can follow the channel. To me it is obvious, its a whole bunch magma which has moved in a direction of a canyon, and followed paths it could travel in.

Seems to me anyone wanting to really explore that area should get a side scan sonar and go exploring, as armchair speculation is interesting, no question - that leads to actual exploration on-site. Then publish, do a video. I've done exploring too as you know over in the Bimini area, and there are shallow and deep formations. Trying to rely on just google without doing the on-site hand's on exploration is interesting for discussion, which I feel should lead up to hand's on exploration. Deep sea side scan tow-fish sonar scans can be done. A group can be setup to do that. And if it proves to be magma flows and tectonic plate features then what?

Tube formations on Mars (https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=tube+formations+on+mars&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAWoVChMIjIqJiuThxgIVRrsUCh17jwou&biw=1920&bih=1006)

There has to be something there to enhance in the first place but they probably are just geological features.

Yes, check this out. It is further north and I see similar objects to Mars tubes.

Highly Camouflaged…this giant structure is nearly impossible to find! Its thousands of miles long and hundreds of feet wide! I don’t know what it is…but I do know that it is many..many..thousands of years old and probably built before the ocean submerged this area of the globe! Due too its mind boggling size and location…it could have only been built by an Ancient..Highly Advanced Civilization far more advanced in technology than man kind has ever known! BEHOLD…the greatest engineering feat of the ANCIENT ASTRONAUTS!!!

A couple of interesting videos included in the article.
