Hi community,

In search for dark sites, I found these two dark site map web pages:

http://darksitefinde...maps/world.html
http://www.lightpoll...&layers=0BTFFFF

If you look at the two maps, you will notice that they look very different from each other for any given region. If you search for Palos Verde, CA, for example, you will notice that lightpollutionmap is much more fine grained than darksitefinder. This begs the question: How come these maps are so different from each other?
