Google has announced that it will soon update North Korea images. The internet giant says the process will be done with the focus on improving its maps, without any political connection.
?For a long time, one of the biggest places with depreciated data has been North Korea. But today we?re changing that with the addition of more detailed maps on Google Maps, ?published Jayanth Mysore, senior product manager, Google Map Maker.
To build this map, Google claims to have brought together a community of cartographers and local users through Google Map Maker to make their contributions such as adding road names and points of interest.
?As a result, the world can access North Korea maps that offer much more information and detail than before. We know that this map is not perfect ? one of the interesting things about maps is that it is a constantly changing place, ?explains Mysore.
