Though there are geoglyphs scattered around the world, the most famous are the Nazca Lines in Peru. These patterns were discovered in 1927 and became famous in the 1930s when air travel over the patterns increased. The Nazca Lines are made up of over 1,000 individual images, ranging in size from around 15 meters up to 370 meters long. Most are simple shapes or lines, while around 70 are clear images of animals, plants, or other fi gures. The site is now a popular tourist attraction and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
雖然地面圖像散布世界各地，不過最著名的就是位於祕魯的納茲卡線。這些圖樣於 1927 年被發現，並於三○年代時因為經過該圖樣上空的飛行旅程增加而出名。納茲卡線由一千多個單獨的圖樣所組成，尺寸從十五公尺左右長至三百七十公尺。它們大多數都是簡單的形狀或是線條，而大約有七十個是清楚的動植物或是其它圖形的圖樣。該址現為熱門旅遊景點，也是聯合國教科文組織世界遺產之一。
