ELEANOR HALL: The operators of Australia's nuclear reactor at Lucas Heights are today calling on the heads of the internet search engine Google to censor its publication of photographs of the site, warning that the images could be used by terrorists.
The photos published on the internet would, until recently, have been available only to a handful of government agencies and NASA.
But now satellite photography is easily accessible on-line, with a new search engine program giving up more information than some people would like.
Through the 'Google Earth' service you can see your suburb, in some cases your house, maybe even your car parked in the street outside.
And as Karen Barlow reports, the program also gives a clear aerial view of Australia's only nuclear reactor.
KAREN BARLOW: After downloading the 'Google Earth' program and focusing on Sydney, the Lucas Heights nuclear facility is plain to see. The reactor is clear in the centre of the site with white, large pipes leading from it to other buildings. Details such as cars, trees and perimeter fencing can also been seen.
