Ok, this is really wierd. Yahoo Maps has a very faint rainbow where the prison is (will be?) but nothing else.

Wicked. If you zoom out a bit, you get newer imagery that shows the facility. It looks almost as if the colors of the newer imagery are ghosted onto the older but higher-res imagery.

Makes me think maybe their high-res imagery here is really B&W but they fake some color by blending in the hue of the lower-res imagery. Wonder if more of these can be found?

I think I've confirmed this. Check out the Yahoo view of Bonnevile Flats and do some zooming. The low-res view is pure white with splotches of high-contrast blue and green. The high-res views also have these colors, but are otherwise clearly B/W imagery. (See http://virtualglobetrotting.com/map/2018/ for links to views)
