Google has been banned from surveying US military bases after it took street-level photographs of a Texas army base. The Department of Defense believes the photographs could compromise security and has ordered base commanders to prohibit Google Earth teams from driving their picture taking vehicles onto military property.

The images *do* intrude on privacy.

Their Street View images clearly show my house, yard, and vehicles.

They are almost clear enough to make out the license numbers, but not quite.

[If I were a TV character, I'd just bark "zoom, zoom, enhance" at the monitor and data would magically spring forth from the void to fill in the detail.]
