[israelnn.com...]

(IsraelNN.com) Google, which offers satellite photos of locations across the globe, has agreed to limit the resolution of footage of sensitive military installations and vulnerable sites in Israel.

Google currently offers satellite photos of eight locations in Israel: Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the Dead Sea, Masada, the Dimona Nuclear Research Center (DNRC), Sdot Micha (listed as a nuclear weapons base), the Kinneret, and the Mizpe Ramon crater.

Photos of Israel will only be available up to a two meter resolution.

ogletree,

Just paint "Google is 'da Debil" in big white letters on the roof.

That should take care of it at the next update.

100 inch screen running your aff site for "chi" or even "adsense" maybe..

can you imagine getting in your email ..

"was surfing your neighbourhood and saw you need to shave your .." ..

I' m actually rather surprised with the patriot act and all ..that google could run this kind of definition on "allies" territory anyway?

A bit of a tempest in a teacup. All of the image data available via G is already available to anyone who really wants it. In most cases, it's free.

I have an interest in keeping track of Google mapping (and thereby dig into things), because of GPS map-sets I sell for a certain Caribbean island that I'm associated with. Believe me, Google isn't posting online the best imaging data that is available, by far. That news item was somewhat laughable.

Added: A lot of it is just regular landsat - you can dig into the raw data and do a lot better than G, as far as cloud cover is concerned. And for limiting to 2 metres - very humorous. I guess they chuckled when they agreed to that. I don't imagine G will soon start posting Ikonos images, so no worries there.
