U.S. Restrictions Lifted: Better Satellite Images May Soon Be Available engine msg:4680297 1:50 pm on Jun 16, 2014 (gmt 0) There are some useful applications for this, although the privacy advocates will be out against it. When you consider that a pilot of a hang glider can fly over a site and take pictures of most things, and people wouldn't even realise. I'm sure, with a decent camera the imagery could be quite detailed.
The decision was made after Digital Globe applied to the US Department of Commerce asking for restrictions to be lifted.

For some people, the unnerving part is just knowing that the closeup images already exist. :: now waiting for the next passing Brainless Client to cry "Google Earth is broken! Their view of my shop window is showing last week's prices!" ::

:: now waiting for the next passing Brainless Client to cry "Google Earth is broken! Their view of my shop window is showing last week's prices!" :: OK, just wait. Soon real-time 1:1 video, with infrared ability, with images stored for 25 years. Handy!
