    JTS is censored on google maps

    Anyone know why our south end zone is whited out on google maps?

    Is there some kind of military installation under there that we don't know about?

    Re: JTS is censored on google maps

    LOL...nice.

    Typically these images are quite old, mostly in the smaller areas like Ames, etc. And they can be months/years old.

    Can anyone tell when this images was taken?

    As far as why it's whited out...I have no idea.

    I noticed that a few months ago but thought it was glare from the sun hitting the metal bleachers, but that wouldn't be it.

    Re: JTS is censored on google maps

    Could it be that Jimmy Hoffa was actually buried in the south end zone of The Jack and not in the end zone of the 'Meadowlands'????

    I smell a cover up with the whited out google maps....

    Re: JTS is censored on google maps

    Here is a better place to view it, it is not censored here:

    http://cairo.gis.iastate.edu/client....50&x=279&y=294

    That is the iowa geographic server updated sometime this past summer.

    I'd guess summer 2005 or so. The MU project hasn't started, and the Hixon-Leid building is only in the dirt moving phase.

    Re: JTS is censored on google maps

    I think the first picture given was summer 2005. I judged this by the progress of construction sites around campus and matching it to summer of 2005 when I was working for facilities.

    Re: JTS is censored on google maps

    Is the field always painted? I'm guessing it was during the winter of 2004, and the field wasn't painted. If you look around central Iowa you can find snow on the ground in some places

    It wasn't during the winter because all the trees are in full bloom.
