Military sites in Poland are frequently poorly mapped but mostly due to lack of access not deliberate
refusal to map it.

In Poland there was proposal to stop mapping speed cameras, it was rejected.

Somebody asked about mapping nesting sites, it was considered as a poor idea with sole exception
of birds_nest=stork *goes to wiki to document tag and explain the difference*

In general places that are not signposted - for example discrete homeless shelters or
shelters for victims of violence are not mapped. Both because it would make their job
harder and because it goes against mapping only verifiable objects.
