Dzhangala (Kazakhstan)

Kazakhstan: Mangystau Province

It has been a designated area (as of February 2012) within Wikimapia. This link will take you within the range where one inch equals 200 feet.  If you back up to the country level where one inch equals about 100 miles, you'll see that the site forms a rather nice iscoeles triangle with the two Russian cities of Saratov and Volgograd (Stalingrad).

Cities and towns within the 50/50 general area include:
