Secret locations in Google Maps
Google Maps (English Google Maps, formerly Google Local) is a collection of applications built on the basis of free map service and technology provided by Google. Created in 2005. The service is a map and satellite imagery of the planet Earth. For many regions, highly detailed aerial photographs are available (shot from a height of 250-500 m), for some - with the possibility of viewing at an angle of 45 ° from four directions. Additionally, we offer pictures of the Moon and Mars.
For no one will be a secret that "Google" hides some buildings and locations, a selection of the most interesting hidden locations.

Air Force Base Ramstein, Germany
This NATO air base is the starting point for the forces of Operation Iraqi Freedom, and for this reason, of course, can be the target for terrorist attacks. This may explain why this object is partially cut from Google Maps.
Pacific Northwest, USA
What exactly do we not see in this photo? This place is located near the border of the states of Washington and Oregon Enthusiasts personally examined this place and found nothing remarkable, except for the sinister kind of fence and unmarked entrance.
Oil refinery Shazalombatta, Hungary
This is one of the strangest samples of censorship in Google Maps - this place is simply shaded in green. The territory of the plant is removed, the buildings are erased, and all you can see is ordinary grass.
Hewes Ten Palace, Holland
It is difficult to imagine that the Dutch royal family can become the main target for the insane terrorist, but the royal palace Hewes Ten is very blurred on Google Maps when viewed from any angle (However, the surrounding area and trees with a close increase are visible with crystal clearness).
Unknown zone, Russia
Nobody knows what is hiding in this region. One of the opinions is that there is a "radar station or missile interception system", and some argue that a snapshot of the surrounding zone is inserted from another region of Russia.
Oil Corporation Mobil, Buffalo, New York, USA
Some criticize Mobil from Buffalo for blurring images of its enterprises, saying that oil corporations are not very interesting for terrorists. On the other hand, we do not know what the terrorists themselves think.

Airbase at Reims, France
The reasons why this airbase is blocked in Google Maps are unknown.
Power Point Indian Point, New York, USA

HAARP, Gacon, Alaska, USA

Mazda Lagoon Racing Circuit, Salinas, California, USA
This is one of the strangest examples of censorship in Google Maps: the Laguna Seca racing track in Salinas, California. The strangest thing about this is the very fact: it's obviously a harmless racing track.
While the surrounding area is perfectly visible, the city of Babylon itself is blurred in the pictures. It can be argued that this is somehow connected with the rebels there.
Tantauco National Park, Chile
For what reason is this park of endangered species completely carved from Google Maps? This no one knows.
"Hill", a correctional institution in Elmira, USA

Alexey Miller House, Russia
According to Wikipedia, in this place is the "private palace of the executive director of OAO Gazprom Alexei Miller." But why is he given preference to all other people? Perhaps we are just not powerful enough to convince Google to cut our homes off satellite imagery.
Colonel Sanders (KFC)
