Cephalonia censored
« on: Tuesday, 09 December, 2014 @ 16:13:05 »
Back in September we had a look at censored imagery in Google Earth. With Google continuing to roll out 3D imagery it is inevitable that they will wish to cover areas that countries wish to keep censored. Although most countries have little or no control over satellite imagery, aerial imagery captured from aircraft has to comply with the local laws.

Cephalonia International Airport on the Greek island of Cephalonia is one such instance. Instead of simply leaving it out of the 3D imagery, Google have rendered it in an interesting blocky pattern. There are, however, uncensored satellite images for the location, as well as Street View around the edges and user submitted photos captured at the airport itself.
