google earth question

Does anyone know what these are?

They're in the middle of the desert in the UAE.

(in case link isn't being co-operative the coordinates are lat=24.6970268 & lon=55.0149286)

I think they're water tanks. Each one is on its own conical plinth.

E&OE.

Sam, I see photos of a deserted building. Not an airial shot. ... what are the coordinates?

Arent those water tanks/sheds in the lands being created (if thats the word) for Abu Dhabi citizens? Past the airport but before you hit no mans land.

Damn lucky married bastards.

dubai jazz: sorry, got links mixed up. It should work now, when I click on it though it points to a bit of sand right next to where it's supposed to.

Sam, probably something to do with oil? notice how there's a perfect grid of tracks in the land around that area.

But it's kind of strange and uncanny. Good find.

I asked a few friends, nobody knows that is. I'm guessing, it's a tribute to Pam A?

That rectangular piece of land is designated as a green belt area, and the grid plan of roads/ tracks is there to divide the property in single "farm" units - which makes it highly likely that the Goat is right and that they are water tanks.
