Spanish term or phrase: geoglifo
CONTEXTO
Hoy se puede admirar el orden urbano, la obra arquitectónica, los geoglifos que antecedieron en más de tres mil años a las líneas de Nasca, la decoración de sus murales,..

--------

Aunque no he encontrado la definición exacta me parece que un geoglifo es una figura hecha en la superficie de la tierra que generalmente se aprecian desde una cierta altura.

Gracias.

  -> Gracias Patricia. Aparentemente "geoglyps" es el nombre y "geoglyphic" es el adjetivo. En este caso se necesita el nombre o sustantivo.
