Yes, we have no Swedish spy base

Following up on the story earlier today of camouflaged censorship on official Swedish aerial imagery…

Swedish secretiveness evidently runs shallow. Another Swedish blogger has discovered that on State GIS agency Lantmäteriverket‘s own website, if you want to purchase aerial photography of Sweden, it is quite happy to let you try before you buy an uncensored image of the spy base that is censored in the publicly available data. And at higher resolution too:


Obviously, one end of Lantmäteriverket hasn’t got a clue what the other end is up to. Perhaps they could use a better map? Arrogantly justifying the need to censor (as a spokesman did in various interviews with the Swedish press) only to have the back door wide open proves that these excuses were made up, an expediency to keep us proles happy.
