Machu Picchu is a 15th-century Inca citadel situated on a mountain ridge 2,430m above sea level. It is located in the Cusco Region, Urubamba Province, Machupicchu District in Peru, above the Sacred Valley, which is 80km northwest of Cuzco and through which the Urubamba River flows.
Machu Picchu was declared a Peruvian Historic Sanctuary in 1981 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983.
It is believed that the Inca were not the most technologically advanced culture in the area of modern Peru and Bolivia, but were preceded by the great megalithic builders thousands of years before.
This is a low res model of the terrain surrounding the Machu Picchu megalithic Site.

Should be possible to overlay/project realworld GPS coords using WGS84.
Constructed from GIS contour elevation data from different data sources combined and enhanced with different filters and erosion techniques to produce a real world style likeness.
Terrain tiles have been stitched to produce a single seamless low res model which provides a scale accuracy of about 1:1m.
