For this game, match the towers below with the coordinates at which the tower can be found. Then, identify the name of the tower and the city in which it is located.

The challenge here is to match the side-views of these towers with the shadows they cast in the overhead satellite images from Google Earth.

1) 2) 3)
4) 5) 6)



the coordinates are:

A) 39′10″N, 10142′12″E

B) 3114'30"N, 12129'42"E

C) 3352′13.64"S, 15112′32"E

D) 3544'40"N, 5122'29"E (this image shows the tower under construction, but there's enough evidence to identify it!)

E) 4338'33.14"N, 7923'13.68"W

F) 4737'13.41"N, 12220'56.50"W

Fun Game!

1)KL Telecom Tower in Kuala Lumpur = A
2)CN Tower in Toronto = E
3)Milad Tower in Iran = D
4)Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai = B
5)Space Needle in Seattle = F
6)Sydney Tower in Sydney = C

The shadow was fun to look for, but with those Panorama images in Google Earth, the final verification was easy!
Many of the towers are also listed here.
