The markers shown in these two images are basically same. The first one was the old marker made by Agro-Gabon, a Govt. owned company. It was privatised and taken over by Siat Gabon in 2004. The marker was therefore re-made and the new marker can be seen in the second image. However the locations of the two images in Panoramio are not matching. I have placed the GE placemarker based on the location marked by Yves Galipeau.

Credits: I am thankful to Yves Galipeau for informing me about this location and also about Agro-Gabon/Siat.

This monument in the shape of a giant sun-dial is in Guachalá, Cayambe, Ecuador. Reportedly this is the only monument in Ecuador built exactly on the equator line. It is part of Quitsato Project a non-profit project which uses its funds for the investigation of the equatorial line.

37. The "un-official" Mitad del Mundo (Middle of the Earth), San Antanio, Ecuador

There are two Equatorial monuments in San Antanio. This is the unofficial one and is closer to the Equator as compared to the official one which is about 200 meters South-West of this location (see #38 below). Intiñan Site Museum is also located at this spot. Although it has staked claim for being virtually on the equator this claim is disputed by others.

It is worth noting that an ancient Inca archaeological site about 3 kilometres to East, (shown below) is located on the equator itself.

The Quitsato Project using WGS 84, which is reportedly the most exact and up to date global positioning system, discovered that the peak of Mount Catequilla archaeological site was located exactly at the zero latitude ( 0º 0' 0" ).

38. The "official" Mitad del Mundo (Middle of the Earth), San Antanio, Ecuador
Based on the tools available with them in 1930s, the French Academy of Sciences had decided the location of the Equator at this site. Accordingly in 1936, with the support of the French American Committee, Ecuadorian geographer Dr. Luis Tufiño built a 10-meter monument at this location.

In 1979, the old monument was moved 7 km to the west, to the town of Calacalí (see #39) and a larger replica of the original monument was made at the site although it was and remains about 200 metres away from the Equator. This slightly mislocated monument is the official and touristy monument and is called "Mitad del Mundo" (Middle of the World).

Mitad del Mundo contains a small Museum of local culture and other attractions such as a Planetarium, an amazing miniature model of Quito, the capital of Ecuador, and restaurants. A small town surrounding the monument at the Museo Etnográfico functions as the tourist center, replicating a colonial Spanish town and is called "Ciudad Mitad del Mundo" (Middle of the World City).

39. The old Equator Monument, Calacalí, Ecuador

Image from Panoramio is by Zsolti a Béka

This monument was originally at San Antanio, about 7 kilometres to East, but in 1979 it was shifted to Calacalí, and is located near to, but not on the true equator line.
Its larger giant size replica has been built afresh on the original touristy site at San Antanio, (see # 35) and is called "Mitad del Mundo" (Middle of the World).
