When I look at the link above, I see little dark, white-outlined
circles with some sort of green object across them. Not at all
like the google maps "satellite" image.

My remarks presumed it was a satellite image, of course. Which
may not be true.

However, the original image at the original link doesn't look
like any "registration marks" I've ever seen, but then I'm not
an aerial photo expert. Still, the original image is a very
strange way to make registration marks, and I doubt it was.

Also - the original image is of a very high density residential
development. In the flickr.com image, I don't see any cultural
features even close to that. While I'm not an aerial photo
expert, I have done some flying so I know reasonably well what
looks like what from low to medium altitude.

I'm not convinced the "something less" analysis is correct.
