More info more good? not everyone agrees

I have to say I wondered about this myself. Some governments are complaining that Google maps show too much detail and could be of use to terrorists. OK, I wasn't thinking terrorist but just the general issue of security.
Google defends themselves on two points:

  • the maps aren't all that current
  • they are all from publically available information
India's President Kalam has voiced major concerns. Before he became president he was scientist who guided India's missile program.
