You tag them, someone else decides if they look promising, and then, (this is the fun part...) someone gets to go out and investigate the most likely locations
Anyway, I thought it kinda tied in with the whole google earth route planning process, and the interest around GK.

Cool stuff - check it out: http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2...n-genghis-khan
Well there is a related documentary here of the Nat Geo search in Mongolia this summer:

Basically they reckon they probably found it.
