County's aerial surveillance contract

Irvine -- Should the government take aerial photographs of your back yard? Orange County last month approved an almost $184,000 contract with a New York-based corporation that takes aerial photos and sells them with GIS (geographic information system) software. But resistance from some county residents forced the county board of supervisors to scale back the contract, to bar the sale of photos to the public. But should the photos be taken at all?
