Atlantis Lost Again, Google Earth to Blame!

Google has finally removed the controversial underwater grid-like patterns from its Google Earth through a bathymetry update - the same patterns, which let to rumours about the lost city of Atlantis.

Internet misleaders, who themselves were infested by a confusion about the Atlantis city, apparently saw a lattice like pattern on the seabed, which, according to them resembled like the design of Atlantis city.

Google has stated that the so called authentic map which exists on Google Earth did embody a number of bungles. Google has utilised advanced oceanic research tools to upload the appropriate map of the earth's subterranean landscape.

"The original version of Google Ocean was a newly developed prototype map that had high resolution but also contained thousands of blunders related to the original archived ship data," David Sandwell, a Scripps geophysicist, stated, reported the Daily Mail.

The latest version of Google Earth has got rid of those discrepancies and provides a more accurate imagery in several areas of the ocean through data collected by research cruises over the past three years.

For hundreds of years now, the story of the lost city of Atlantis has attracted the imagination of people worldwide. According to myths, the city, which has been depicted as the regime of joy, wealth and prosperity, was swallowed up by the ocean all of a sudden.
