Upcoming Threat ?
It is now possible for everyone (who uses computer) to travel through any part of the world via Google Earth. Google Earth brings infront of you the picture of almost every part of this world with excellent (high quality) resolution. Whether it is the 'Great Wall of China' or 'Rashtrapathy Bhavan' (dwelling of Indian President), you can view the spot and its premises with ultimate resolution.
Another important thing is that it is possible for everyone to view the 'Blue House of Ceyol', but the major confidential centres of USA like White house are forbidden to the users in Google Earth. Many countries like China, Korea etc.have rose against this. So this creates some mystery behind this.
The CEO of Google came forward and mentioned that there is no such hidden agenda behind Google Earth, and if there is anything in the software that affects the security of any country, it can be solved through bona fide discussions.
Dr.K.S Moorthy- one among the chiefs of Indian Information Technology Dept, proclaimed that the movement of soldiers, customs officials as well as the entire defence system can be known through softwares like Google Earth and similar kind of which is developed my Microsoft etc. which would act as a catalyst for terrorists, smugglers etc...to enhance their anti-social as well as anti-national activities, and therefore soldiers should remain in extreme vigilance.
