The Pentagon has banned Google from driving their mapping vehicles on military bases after detailed street views of Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas, appeared on Google Maps. The views have since been taken down by a cooperative Google.
An official at Fort Sam Houston allowed the vehicle on the premises after promises from the driver that no videotaping or photographing would be allowed. Google insists the images were loaded in error and should never have been taken in the first place.
The driver of the vehicle apparently violated Google's own mapping policy which prohibits its vehicles from driving on military bases and private property.
