Yeah those rectangle artifacts are seen in other parts of the image as well. Whatever it is, is part of the original image, because there is
smoothing/dithering occuring when you zoom way in. Perhaps these retouched for whatever reason.. Do these rectangles appear in the same place
every day? If these are retouched to hide some military installation, they are having the opposite effect and drawing attention to these locations.
I know that some countries do no allow published aerial photos of their military assets, but there is no way to tell if this is the case without a
survey or some other reference.
