I wonder if Fort Sam Houston was the installation mentioned in this article?

Pentagon Bans Google Teams From Bases

Anyway, the Fort Sam street views have been removed. Now Google only shows a black image.

Default close- up maps?

What is the goings' on about the 'close-up' maps that Google had to remove? Are there still good ones like the Google Earth so you can look at area property when looking at real estate?

Try Microsoft's Live Search Maps and once you've found the location, go to the 'Bird's Eye View' which you can rotate.

Google freely agreed to the "error" in judgement and agreed it was not appropriate to photograph and show the world the military bases in the US. Google removed Ft. Sam and agreed to not photo any other military installatiosn.
Not a big deal. In today's world, it's just common sense.

You can also try Zillow.com. You can look at a good above picture from each of the four compass directions.

I think Zillow uses the same MS program as the link I posted...
