catch-all descriptor for locations derived from 2013 Google and partners imagery

Note: digitization of modern features (buildings, roads, etc) from Google Earth (or Map) imagery likely violates the source's terms of use. Use of Google Earth or Maps to navigate and find location coordinates of abstract or ancient places does not violate its terms of use.

The assertion of 5.0m positional accuracy is based upon http://www.geoeye.com/GeoEye101/satellite-imagery/collection-method.aspx.
