I was zooming around on Google earth over Nashville trying to get a feel for the local terrain while thinking about any possible answers for the recent unexplained and unreported light plane crash at the international airport.Admiring the landscape and looking at what the J Percy Priest reservoir has to offer,I noticed that SOME of the jetties in the Elm Hill marina were blocked out like this.......

(Odd as not all of them are covered up)
Moving west a bit I see that all the private houses in the Harborview district have been obscured in the same way.......

And zooming out still further we see all this lot.....

But if we go to streetview,there is obviously nothing to hide.Just normal houses where normal people live.....

The same house as above......

I didn't spend a long time looking,but if we shoot up to the north of Nashville,we can see this lot......

As they should be,not obscured as the first lot were.

Does anyone have an explanation please as to why they've done this selectively?

Think you will find that a lot unless you change your settings to stop street view happening. I've seen this a lot and once changed it is ok again....

Its probably something to do with 3d viewing the map.

They do it in major cities where they will render the buildings in 3d, probably just expansion of that, apple does it with their maps in suburbs as well.

heres an example from apple maps, seeing how reactionary everyone is, I am positive this is what you are seeing in google.

shapes are roughly right, its just pre-texture.

Good find, I've never seen anything like that before, and on such a wide scale. Odd. No explanation, but a spooky Halloween houses-and-boats-in-simulated-sheets effect.

Lots of ticky-tacky going on there, as I see the lawns are all properly shaved (just alike). I like the grass grown tall and the prairie's popping out of backyard's.

Turn 3D buildings off and it disapears....

Ok thanks for the suggestions everyone.I've looked and can't find anywhere that lets me turn off 3D buildings?

But,like something out of a Stephen King movie,it seems to be spreading.This area on the other side of Nashville which last night was perfectly clear,now looks like this......

Is this a Google Sketchup thing where you can add your own 3D models to Google earth,or would you be the only one who can see them? If so then it could explain why it's happening the way it is,someone somewhere is sitting at a PC and doing them one-by-one?

So can anyone confirm my Google Sketchup theory please?
