Is Google Photoshopped on Google Maps?


Over on the Site Reference forums, it is pointed out that the Google headquarters appears to have been photoshopped into the picture.

Offhand, I would say yes.

Offhand, I would say yes. Looks areas that normally would have a lot of variance in color and texture, like tops of buildings, have been smoothed out. I can think of at least a couple of ways to do this.

But, with respect, is this a big deal?

It is healthy to know that they serve the same dog food to themselves.

Sharpened and lightened for sure; sort of like the light of salvation beaming forth from the plex, no?

Those flat (contrast-wise) rooftops are suspicious, but otherwise it looks like a highlight. Perhaps it's a "see, we aren't concerned about high-resolution images of our corporate headquarters... and neither should you".

If you're looking for conspiracy stuff in Google on Google maps, why not look over at The Dalles on the Columbia river where they are reportedly building their monstrous new data center? Oh, that's right, I forgot:

We're sorry, but we don't have imagery at this zoom level for this region...

For reference, that's no imagery at 2000ft/inch while the G plex is imaged all the way down to about 75ft/in
