Weird Writing

Please note that some or all of the objects mentioned in this post are no longer visible on Google Earth or Google Maps.

Somewhere in the middle of Utah we find this giant writing overlaying the photograph (make sure to zoom right in โ€“ itโ€™s very big). The text reads โ€œ40 NAIP03 01026-44โ€ so appears to be a unique tag for that section of the map and has been warped by the process of stitching the image to the adjacent photos.

Again in Utah there is a similar site although this second example has been partially obscured by the image tile above.
