    Sometimes the satellite images aren't very clear on Google Maps...

    I'm guessing you are trying to zoom into the country...

    The only country that I've seen that is super clear...is the USA...

    Everywhere else is just blurry....

    Most of Canada is really clear as well.. LOL I can see my car I had at the time in my driveway!! the best part is they took the image when I was washing it so you can see all the water on the drive way around it. LOL

    Looks like only high end tourist islands are clear off Viet Nam like Hon Tre. Some pictures show a nice looking island. It's google that decides what to show clear.

    I think some countries ask google to blur certain areas especially if they have some military significance nearby.
