Siting terrorism concerns Google Earth will begin a campaign to obscure key Indian goverment facilities. As an addition step, Google Earth personel will be distorting the structure of buildings considered a security risk.
Google Earth will not only blur pictures of sites that the Indian government considers sensitive, but also distort building plans of key facilities, the report said.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

This article further demonstates Google's compliance and eagerness to not only "blur" areas of interest overseas, but has implications for its representation of facilities here in America. I think this brings into question the accuracy of Google Earth's data. Finally the engineers ability to "distort" buildings brings up other concerns as well. Not only will buildings be blurred, but they could appear clear and sharp yet be of a entirely different layout in comparison to the actual buildings design.
