ARTICLE Figure 1. Example of looting damage as seen in Google Earth; the pockmarked landscape visible is the result of numerous and densely spaced looters’ pits. The site is Bab adh-Dhra, in a Google Earth image from 2007. Figure 2. Bab adh-Dhra as seen from the ground in June 2009 (photograph by Daniel Contreras). On-the-ground images like this one both serve to ground- truth the identification of looting damage made on the basis of Google Earth images like that seen in Figure 1 and provide a dramatic sense of real effects of loot- ing damage.
