Hi everybody,

visualizing a particular site, the military airport of Galatina (Lecce,
Southern Italy), there is a clear difference between Google Earth and
Microsoft Visual Earth. The former shows the site as it is while the latter
covers it with olive trees.

Here's a detailed comparison:

with the related KMZ file to locate the site on Google Earth.

I wonder how many sites are 'manipulated'

who's the best/the worst in doing that among the two.
