This is not why it’s called the Netherlands

At least ten people in the Hague are recorded for posterity on the satellite photos of Google Earth either partially or entirely unclothed.

Just as a precautionary measure, I punched my own coordinates into the mapping system. Nothing to see. Fortunately.

    Depending on the personages displayed for posterity, Google may have just given whole new meaning to the term “heat map”.

    When I saw the first of these, my post contained speculation that it was posed. The concentration of these in one location supports that theory.

    I find it difficult to believe that the pictures were posed. These people would have had to know exactly when the satellite was passing overhead. I know that the view of my home is several years old because there’s been a disabled classic car in the drive for over two years and it isn’t in the picture. I would imagine that new photos aren’t taken until and unless it is deemed that enough changes have been made in the area to warrant new pictures.
