After identifying Parchinar as the most like city, the research team did a house-to-house search of satellite images. They looked for buildings that could satisfy his special circumstances:
At 6 foot 4 inches bin Laden needed a tall building. He uses a dialysis machine that requires electricity so his location needs an electric grid hook-up or generator. He enjoys physical protection and personal privacy which could mean high walls and space between structures. He needs body guards so there has to be at least three rooms. He also would want to remain protected from aerial views which means nearby trees.
This first structure is located at N33.901955, 70.093746.
NOTE: The UCLA team did not use images from Google Earth to conduct their research. But we were able to locate the sites by using Google Earth from the coordinates given and provide almost exact replicas of the images presented in their research.
