In 1941-42, under the direction of Albert Speer, this 12,650 tonne block of concrete was constructed in order to test the stability of Berlin's soil. Hitler had planned to re-model Berlin into 'Germania', and the plans included a triumphal arch, three times the size of the Arche de Triumphe!
The 11 meter foundation was inserted 18.2 meters into the ground.
The subsidence of the object was measured carefully but measurement ceased in 1944. Measurement was re-started after the war and continued untill 1977. In the event the soil would not have supported Hitler's arch unless specially prepared. The Schwerbelastungskörper is now a tourist attraction.
syzygy: For single or a few placemarks coordinates still fine of course!

syzygy: Yup! Sorry everyone for the attachment issue! Hope will be solved soon! Until links to kmz files stored elsewhere is can be a solution...

RaveyThirteen: So... I just tried to add a .kmz of some new finds and saw that nasty error message. Should I just hold onto it til the space issue is sorted?

typsish: As far as I know, it should be foldable. But check the rules of the company you are flying with. They have the specific requirements mentioned in the luggage section. And if the stroller you have now doesn't fit their requirements, check the article on new

diane9247: I don't know what to do about the "space limit" thing. I got a post ready, then couldn't upload the small file. I am losing eyesight, so not sure I can even post anymore! 😵💫(Pinned unfinished post last night, but it didn't save.)

willi1: GE Imagery Date: Yes, I noticed it too. And I thought it was something of an attitude on my part.
