Who is Vanessa? - Google Earth Sleuthing
Another one of those mystery views from a satellite photo in Google Earth. Someone at the Google Earth Community noticed a womans name and "phone number" written in 12-meter tall letters on the ground near Belo Horizonte, Brazil. You can view the location here. So, the poster asked why someone would do this? Somone speculated maybe a real estate developer (based on the nearby development). Then, about 2 months later someone called 'jfjunior' posted he had done some Google searching and discovered "Vanessa 45444" was an MPP candidate, or in Portuguese a "Candidato a Deputada Estadual". Apparently the photo is from 2002, because 45444 was the number she used during that election. It amazes me how the Internet enables you to find out about almost anything odd you may see if enough people look into it. There's now almost 500,000 registered members at the GEC forums. And for every registered user there is usually 15-20 people not registered viewing the forums.
