Earlier, Australia had raised some concerns about the safety of its nuclear reactor now that it was clearly visible in Google Earth. These fears were somewhat allayed but now some Dutch politicans have raised similar concerns that the information displayed in Google Earth might assist terrorists in planning their attacks.

It calls to mind the 16th to 18th century battles among European powers for superiority on the seas when accurate geographic data was highly valued and deemed essential to state security.

By way of Geocarta.
