Hi Dennis,

The following images use the Giza Plateau Mapping Project plan drawing of Giza which, AFAIK, is still regarded as the most accurate map of the Giza plateau presently in the public domain:

The Great Giza Circle



The Lehner-Goedicke Line & Inter-Quarter Lines



As Lehner says:

Quote

"A great SW-NE diagonal cuts the diagonal of Menkaure's first queen's pyramid, touches the SE corner of his pyramid, cuts the diagonal of his Mortuary Temple, passes the SE corner of the Khafre Pyramid court, cuts the diagonal of the fore-temple of Khafre's Mortuary Temple, touches the SE corner of Khufu's Pyramid, very nearly cuts the diagonal of his first queen's pyramid and ends in a large block of masonry built into the escarpment." Lehner, M. (1985), A Contextual Approach to the Giza Pyramids, Archiv für Orientforschung 31: 136-158. §2:1, 143 (PDF 9)

"These alignments are out by just about the amount that we would expect from methods of sighting and measuring using long cords across a kilometre of sloping plateau." - Lehner, M., TCP, p.106

Make of it what you will.
