Oil drilling in North Dakota is going on at a record pace, these are probably oil wells near New Town, located in Mountrail County, North Dakota, USA (48.066,-102.396)
Near New Town, North Dakota US, 102.4°W, 48.0°N
Oil wells in the Bakken Formation. The oil is being produced by horizontal wells with the fracturing technologie.
Also some Minuteman Missile Silos on the picture.
Thank you very much für running this game.
This is rural North Dakota, with parts of New Town and Lake Sakakawea at the bottom left. I would guess that the dots are oil wells, probably fracking sites.

This is near New Town, North Dakota. I believe those small dots are oil drilling rigs.
This region is a region of oil extracted. There are a lot of oil wells in this region.

It is the southern part of Mountrail County in North Dakota, USA. Position around 48°02’N 102°25’W.
The dot-pattern should be associated with the oil drilling currently going on in the Bakken Formation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bakken_Formation) that is lying underneath this part of the USA. Going back in history in Google Earth shows this recent drilling development, since the “dots” dissapear whilst going back in time.
The Doted patterns are the wind famrs.
i am stil tring to figure out the exact location
Montrail County, North East of New Town, North Dakota, USA
I guess that the dots you refer to are farms
Skip a part of that first response. Those aren’t farms but these are oil fields with drills.
Fracturing is going on but what is “parker version”?? (this is not my official answer..lol)
