Also there are more drones on the (but older?) DigitalGlobe/Mapbox imagery (Strava) imagery of Chabelly airport, than the (more recent?) equivalent GoogleMaps:

This one is weird because it has perimeter security, but almost nobody goes into it wearing a fitbit / carrying a phone; perhaps _this_ is the CIA site?

Probably, but from observation that leads to a bootstrap problem: either they have to tell $company where all the "black sites" are, or they have to armtwist $company to implement hands-off filtering of content.

The latter probably quite easy for US-based companies.

It's probably a good time to remind people that this is an excellent example of what Michael Hayden said; we should all be aware.

And they do. They all do. All the Governments, or at least the ones who have people killed, do.

Can I just make sure I get this straight: Fitbit devices emit heat that can be detected by satelites?

Looks like BurningMan gets offset year-on-year, or else consistently wrong devices are brought to the site.

But: Back to the spooky stuff, it's not like the US Government are incapable of enforcing good operational security. Groom Lake / "Area 51" is well-mapped, yet basically Strava-free:
