Anyone Know Why This Portion of Austria is Censored on Google Earth?

Tonight I was watching the special on TEEVEE about the "monuments men" of WW2 who tracked down art and treasure stolen by the nazis. They found a huge stash of treasure in the mountains around Altaussee, Austria. Apparently there are mines running all through the area. So I typed it into google earth.... and found the area censored.

This is between the towns of Altaussee and Tauplitz, Austria. I'm just wondering why, it seems like an odd place to pixelate.

Google Earth censors military, chemical, nuclear, as well as other "sensitive facilities". Perhaps a Billionaire has a chalet up in the mountains?

Pixellation? Um?

Its black because its a large body of water, a lake to be exact, called Altausseer see.

Its in low resolution because.. well, lakes aren't worth sending a horribadly expensive high resolution aerial photograph plane over.

you seem to be confusing lack of resolution with alledged " cencorship "
