Nonlinear Science has witnessed exponential growth in recent years, due to the enhanced ability it offers in understanding intricate patterns of system evolution. The present work purports to the application of such nonlinear analysis tools to obtain an enhanced perspective of the home planet earth. Specifically, nonlinear analyses of latitudinal and longitudinal altitude profiles reveal the presence of underlying chaotic dynamics and patterns. Interpretations of these results lead to the concept of interconnectedness of every location on earth to every other location, through space and time, where man and his evolutions and developments are seen as an integral part of nature’s transformation. Taking cue from this, the concept of “Geo-Compatibility” is introduced, given by the covariance of their chaotic signatures. Following this, Geo-Compatibilities of assorted location pairs are computed. From the results, it is seen that geographical similarities across and within continents show low and high Geo-Compatibilities respectively. However, the most interesting results are the high values of Geo-Compatibility obtained for pairings between Holy Sites suggesting that the development of civilizations and cultures, which are a result of man-nature interactions over hundreds of years, too possess intricate patterns. The entire work is thus a testimony to the concept of interconnectedness.
