Satellite confirms structures of Kota Gelanggi city in Malaysia

The search for the lost city of Kota Gelanggi in Malaysia has taken a leap forward with satellite maps confirming the existence of structures on site. A remote sensing satellite image taken by the Malaysian Centre for Remote Sensing (Macres) has revealed possible structures, which match aerial photographs taken by Canberra-based independent researcher Raimy Che-Ross last year.

A Kuala Lumpur-based Geographical Information System (GIS), mapping and remote sensing consultant who analysed the satellite image said there was no doubt that there were peculiar structures. However, the consultant added that there were also other possibilities of what these structures could constitute. They include former logging trails, fluvial networks caused by receding waters of a dam, which is the result of sedimentation.
