This word appears to be a neologism. Googling "pictureglyph" only brings up links to this page, or clones of it. The word "Pictoglyph" exists: could it be applied to this subject?SiGarb 15:13, 15 September 2005 (UTC)
This last line of the section quoted below is unclear.
"This Geoglyph is derived from a 6000 year old pictureglyph known as “El Señor de los Báculos” located in the Rio Loa area near Calama, Chile.
The Geoglyph is located at an altitude of 2469 metres (8100 feet) above sea level – It is located on the Llano de la Pacienia (Plain of Patience), 13 kilometres from the town of San Pedro.
The stone walls forming this geoglyph are 1200 metres (3936 feet) in length.
This image forms part of the pastoral cosmology. The sun cuts across this pictureglyph at the solstice."
Whose pastoral cosmology? Does the final sentence refer to the new geoglyph, or the old "pictureglyph"? Which solstice, summer or winter? And "cuts across" in what way (does the sun never shine directly on it at any other time)?SiGarb 15:13, 15 September 2005 (UTC)
Over half of this article reads like an advert for Andrew Rogers. A mention that Rogers does geoglyphs and a link to his page, where most of this information belongs, should suffice. Someone want to do it? Morgaledh 05:22, 10 July 2007 (UTC)
Trees as geoglyphs?
And if crop circles are geoglyphs, despite their transience, what about the use of tree plantings to create designs or patterns, or even a name like the 'STUDEBAKER' trees in Indiana (coordinates 41.67N,86.49E). Is it art? It is certainly a design on a large scale, intended for viewing from the air. Rudy22 (talk) 16:05, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
Validity of entry
The concept of Geoglyps is attributed only to Arthur D. Faram. It is a hypothesis only and not even a theory much less an actual scientific method. There has been insufficient bordering on a complete lack of evidence that is necessary for the hypothesis to become a theory. This information should be included in the article to avoid the misconception that it is a scientific method. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 03:22, 19 September 2011 (UTC)
