Only slightly related, but I was wandering down my town via Streetview when I noticed that the Department of Defence building was blurred out. Fair enough, since it's a Department of Defence (not that any foreign powers would be bothered with it). Then I noticed another house that was blurred out, an old single-storey cottage in a back-street. Why would anyone bother with that? I presume the owner requested it.



Anyway, back to maps! Here's a map of the most common surnames in Europe by country:

In germany you see loads of houses blurred
