Test Your Skills

While fumbling around the web I came across a very interesting page on the Australian MoD's website:

Testing Your Skills in Imagery Analysis

Basically, you have fifteen minutes to answer questions about an overhead image. This is not a military facility of any sort, so it will really test your ability to figure out some of the answers. It's not a representative example of the intense amount of training that professional imagery analysts must endure, but it is a pretty good example of the kinds of details you have to be able to pick up on when analyzing overhead imagery. Give it a try and see if you can hack it!

It's the University Of Calgary in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

51° 04' 36.66"N 114° 07' 37.76"W

Oval facility on the left of the image is a speed skating rink.

And yes I do indeed live in Calgary.

And I'd also love to know how they chose this particular spot.
