[aprssig] Google isn't my friend, it's Big Brother...

Wes,
I don't see what you are talking about.  I compared the Google map with my Precision Mapping 6.0 map and they seem to be the same except that just north east of the end of the street where you have the VOR symbol the Precision map shows a little peak called Sand Mountain.  Google names some of the streets that Precision does not name.

  Guys, I just created an object in aprs that represents the location of the airport VOR in a nearby town.  I then went to findu to look it up and found that google blanked out one tile on their satellite photo map.

  Check it out...

  Select hybrid map and zoom way in.  Nice to know that google is helping to keep us safe from the bad guys.  I don't suppose they could find the VOR stations in the same database I did, eh?  And what difference would it make if they could see a photo of it?  Sheesh.

  Wes
