Update: I just found out, that the problem only occurs in my account, so I trashed the
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Aperture.plist once again (I wonder what went wrong the first time I did it) and now all pins and images show again as they should and this thread appears to be misnamed: not really an invisible filter problem

You are looking at the System Library, you need to open your User Library:
the "tilde~" is short for your Home Folder. To open your User Library go to the Finder "Go" menu, hold down the alt/option⌥-key until the Library is shown in the drop-down menu, then select it.
Navigate to Application Support.

**** ya! It works. So I try to reconstruct what happended.
As the first Startup of Aperture, it asked me If I want that apple sent my data to apple to get the Geoinformation. I confirmed no. Because of that I got no access to the map. First start up of Aperture was long time ago and I forget about doing this. And I think there was no possibility to change this first answer in any option menu. Now I deleted the com.apple.Aperture.plist in my the library of my home directory. By the next startup of Aperture it asked me again if Iwant that apple sent data for the geoinformation. I said yes and now maps are working. Thanks a lot!!!!!

You are welcome, Tobi.
After trashing the Preferences you may have to reset some of your settings again, but except for that, it should cause no ill effects.

Is fibot's experience correct? If you answer no to sending data to Apple when you first launch Aperture, the only way change this is to trash preferences?
Or is this controlled by Preferences > Advanced > Look up places automatically?

I am not sure about that - that is why I refrained from commenting. I never said "no" to Apple, so I do not know for sure, if that could have adverse ramifications. And "Advanced > Look up places automatically" has always been turned on for all my accounts.
However, a missing "Places look-up" cannot explain the hidden "filter" effect we both observed - that the browser did not show any images that have been geo tagged, only images without location tags were visible in the film strip.
My preferences must have been corrupted for a different reason, anyway.

When you answer Yes, do you know what gets sent to Apple? What is the feature for?

The dialogue says, what will be sent to Apple: the GPS coordinates of the photos.
I tried on a different account, what would happen, if I said "NO" for once. The paces view shows a screen, similar to the screen you see, when you are offline, but turning places on in the "Advanced" Preferences enabled all again. With turning "Places" on, you will enable sending the GPS coordinates - with out warning.

It sounds like you solved the problem that Leonie and I were trying to help you with in your question. If that is the case, it would be good to go back to that question and mark it as answered, and also write a new reply with a link to this thread.
