Secret locations in Google Maps
Google Maps (Google Maps; formerly Google Local) - a set of applications built on the basis of a free map service and technology provided by Google. Created in 2005. The service is a map and satellite images of the planet Earth. Highly detailed aerial photographs (taken from a height of 250–500 m) are available for many regions, and for some, with the possibility of viewing at 45 ° from four sides of the world. Extras are offered images of the Moon and Mars.
It will not be a secret for anyone that Google hides some buildings and locations, a selection of the most interesting hidden locations.
Baker Lake, Inuit Reservation in Northern Canada
A group of enthusiastic researchers believes that the darkened area in this image and in some other locations hides extraterrestrial beacons of aliens.
Ramstein Air Force Base, Germany
This NATO airbase is the starting point for the forces of Operation Iraqi Freedom, and for this reason, of course, can be a target for terrorist attacks. This may explain why this object is partially cut from Google Maps.
Pacific Northwest, USA
What exactly we do not see in this photo? This place is located near the state border of Washington and Oregon. Enthusiasts personally examined this place and did not find anything remarkable, except for an ominous view of the fence and the unmarked entrance.
Refinery Shazalombatta, Hungary
This is one of the strangest examples of censorship in Google Maps - this place is simply painted in green. The territory of the plant is removed, the buildings are erased, and all that you can see is ordinary grass.
Huis Teng Palace, Holland
It’s hard to imagine that the Dutch royal family could be the main target for the insane terrorist, but the royal palace of Hewis Ten is blurred on Google Maps from any angle (However, the surrounding area and trees are seen with crystal clarity at close magnification).
Unknown Zone, Russia
No one knows what is hiding in this region. One of the opinions is that there is a “radar station or a missile interception system” there, and some argue that a snapshot of the surrounding zone is inserted from another region of Russia.
Mobil Oil Corporation, Buffalo, New York, USA
Some have criticized 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.
Everyone heard about this country, included in the supposed “Axis of Evil,” but very few people ever visited it. You will also not see it on Google Maps, because the whole country exists on images, but without road markers, street names or any other identifying details.
Reims Air Base, France
The reasons why this air force base is blocked in Google Maps are unknown.
Indian Point Power Station, New York, USA
Many members of the United States government called for the Indian Point power station to be shut down. In addition to environmental considerations, according to energy experts, the power plant is not strong enough to withstand an earthquake like the one that recently destroyed Japan.
Volkel Air Base, Holland
It is rather amusing to see how roughly this airbase is blurred on satellite images, however, WikiLeaks published a diplomatic correspondence that confirms the presence of nuclear warheads on the territory of this base.
HAARP, Gakona, Alaska, USA
NADIR (High Frequency Northern Lights Research Program) is one of the most controversial operations currently underway in the United States. Gakona. the place of research, and experiments with the ionosphere and some conspiracy therapists there are revered for the cause of anything from floods to earthquakes, but there is very little evidence of this.
Racetrack Mazda Laguna Seca, Salinas, California, USA
This is one of the strangest examples of censorship on Google Maps: the Laguna Seca racing track in Salinas, California. The strangest thing about this is precisely the fact: this is obviously a harmless race 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 local rebels.
Tantauco National Park, Chile
What is the reason why this reserve of endangered species is completely cut out from Google Maps? nobody knows that.
"Hill" Correctional Facility in Elmir, USA
This is the prison of the highest level of reliability in the state of New York. Perhaps, after the riots in the prison of Attica and several incidents of uprisings and mass escapes around the world, the authorities can really worry about the possibility of escapes with the help of helicopters.
Alexey Miller House, Russia
According to Wikipedia, in this place is located the “private palace of the executive director of Gazprom Alexey Miller”. But why was he favored over all other people? Perhaps we’re just not powerful enough to convince Google to cut our homes off of satellite imagery.
Colonel Sanders (KFC)
This is Google's most bizarre fact, Colonel Sanders, the face of the Kentucky Fried Chicken network, does not appear in any image from Google Street View. This is because, according to Google representatives, that Sanders was a real person, and images of real people should be blurred in any images.
Faro Islands, Denmark
It is believed that non-advertised military installations are located in this zone.
NATO Headquarters, Portugal
This picture would be the most funny if it did not have such an ominous context. Whoever edited the image of the Portuguese headquarters of NATO, just copied another part of the earth's surface on top of the image of the building. Very strange
Nuclear Station Seabrook, New Hampshire
It is believed that the Sibruk nuclear power plant is located in this northeastern part of the United States.
Rocket Mine, Spain
According to the testimony of one researcher: “At this place there is a small building with something resembling a rocket shaft in the middle. What is strange - this zone is not blocked in Yahoo! Maps, but her image in Google Maps is not.
Atomic zone, France
We are not quite sure what “The Marcoule site of the Commissariat l'Energie Atomiaue” means, but we think that the word “atomique” is key here.
