If you scroll around the edge of that "reduced resolution" area, it 
_looks_ like it is exactly that - the resolution has been reduced on 
purpose.  There's a strip between the low-res color and the b&w that 
appears to be color at the same resolution as the b&w, then the color 
resolution goes very low.

Not sure why they'd do that, though.  Some other potential targets in m 
part of the country, including major airports, military installations, 
a NASA site, dams, etc, are all at the same resolution as everything 

Maybe it's just a screwup - something like "this data is color and it's 
newer, so it must be better" even though it's low-res?

beats me.
