    Have no idea.

    Check out Google earth, punch in an address of someone you know (maybe your parents?) who has a house and cars.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    For instance, with my old neighbourhood growing up, you can't zoom right in on my house, you can only see a general view of houses. You can see distinct houses, but if you try to go closer they are all blurred out. My backyard had a pool and you can't even see it with google earth. So I don't get how detailed the mapping must be to let the state use it as evidence to fine people?

    My old house.
    Everything was plainly visible.

    Orion, sometimes the blur out is due to natural effects.

    Depending on the clarity of the day when the satellite image was taken it may only be able to access down to a certain amount of detail. Ditto for cover from things like tree's or other such objects.

    You'll find the issue with not being able to zoom in close enough true with places other than simply private property, because its a software limitation.

    There are some things that are ACTUALLY blurred out, generally that is for security reasons and yes its something I believe you must actually request from google.
