Are replit (technically google's) servers in Dearing, Kansas?

I was doing some research for badminton and I used a browser emulator to work around network restrictions.

I probably should have remembered that it's a browser emulator and it will have a different location than my own (I can easily fix), but on google maps, it said that I was in Dearing, Kansas.

Is this where google (because replit uses google) hosts their servers? The location shows it is on a road near a lake or other body of water, but also servers are also probably capable of geo-spoofing their location. If the latter is true, then why Dearing, Kansas?

My coordinates and "address" according to the browser emulator.

@novaflippers Well, more or less use their IP to find the general area (but still it is quite accurate - within a couple miles of accuracy sometimes)...

Why wouldn't they have high security.

You said that these data centers are "usually kept private".

I doubt it, or at least... they don't reveal it because people don't generally need to know this info.
