The "Michael AAF Building, Utah" you can see from the road driving by. But then you`ll have a creepy pick up truck following you with tinted windows for a bit. Really.

I checked the 2 most BS ones, North Korea is not all blocked out, there isn`t any street view but you can still see most of it, can`t say all because I didn`t check all of NK.
AND Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is VERY view-able, it even has Street View on the Raceway!

That`s a very clear reason you gave. I was merely pointing out it had nothing to do with it.

Pedo_Bear: I don`t presume to know any of Google`s motives. I just made the differentiation between their "Maps" site and their "Earth" application.

Some housing near the place where i work is blurred also. It peaked my interest why so every time i am on a break and i walk past that houseing block me and my colleagues try to look inside or try to sneak a peak through an open door or over a fence.
Except for military bases I think it is the most useless thing to do, blurring property it only attracts attention.

And the palace on the Dam in the Netherlands. You can go and visit it if you want so you can even look inside.
What are they affraid of? That the Google earth satellite would take a picture when the queen is bathing topless in the backyard? She doesn`t even live there.

CrakrJak Google Earth and Maps get a lot of it`s information from Arial photography. N.Korea aren`t too hot on having planes fly across their territory. So most of the effort to get N Korea mapped is using very basic satellites and then people using googles map creator to build it from bottom up, from people`s memories pictures etc. Groups like North Korea Uncovered do the leg work. Where as Google Earth still only has the Satellite images.

Eric Schmidt is trying to get into N.Korea, you really think they`re not complying with somthing soo simple as put our country on G Earth so we can use it?
And ever heard of OS Maps fine british invention. Low tech and as accurate as satellite maps , but a bit more labour intensive. N.korea can easily have mapped out the country and accurately.

Had to check.. I was pretty sure the Oahe Dam in South Dakota would have been blurred out, but it wasn`t. Couldn`t take photos when I went on the tour...guess its not that secret.

Don`t ask me why they`d blur one and not the other, it`s not my company.

I believe you guys are confusing Google Maps with Google Earth. Google Earth, I do believe, blurs out many sites.

They`re all fully visible without blurring, including North Korea. The Colonel is blurred by the auto face-recognition. The rest are what you see when Google maps is loading slowly. Someone with dialup made this ridiculous post.

Colonel Sanders is not blurred because he is a real person. He is blurred because Google`s face recognition, which is used to automatically blur faces, thinks that his face is a real face rather than a drawing.

Seabrook also is fully viable. Sorry but it seems that this is a bogus post.

Elmira Correctional is also fully viable.

Sorry, the Keowee Dam is fully viable on Google earth. There is a Nuclear generating plant there, to the left of the picture posted, but it is fully viable.

I believe the Siberian site was confirmed as a Russian long-range radar array. The kind used to detect ICBM launches and high-altitude planes.

The reason North Korea isn`t on Google is that the NK gov`t could use it for their own planning, etc.

Some of these are clearly areas that are blurred for security. Others, however, are simply areas that were taken at different time so have two different sets of qualities. There is a similar patch to these over the area my parents live.
