Hi community,

In search for dark sites, I discovered these two shadowy site map internet pages:

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

When you have a look at the two maps, you'll observe that they seem very different from each other for any specific area.  If you hunt for Palos Verde, CA, for example, you'll observe that lightpollutionmap is much more fine grained than darksitefinder.  This begs the question: How come these avenues are so different from one another?
