Military bases, sure, but they're already blanked out, aren't they?
No, most UK bases are now in reduced resolution and/or older data, 5 years ago I needed an overhead of Bisley for a Scouting event, no problem I used Google Earth, the NEW Lord Roberts Centre was clearly visible. Doing an updated overhead last year and its missing, along with any new detail of Pirbright camp, Google having rolled back their data set by 10 years...Microsofts version is just very low res.
Of course Google's supplying gov't agencies the full upto date stuff, and the drive-by data, as you'd expect as they employ ex-spooks to sell their wares and interface with gov't depts.
Google is NOT your friend.
