Google Maps Now Has Driving Directions In North Korea
North Korea Tech reports that Google Maps now has driving directions in North Korea.
As the site reports, “North Korea has strict controls on internal movement, a scarcity of private car ownership and almost no internet users.” Despite all of that, Google Maps can give those who do have a car and internet access the ability to see directions and traffic via the Google Maps apps or website.
Back in January 2013, Google encouraged users to use Google Maps Maker to help them build the roads and mapping. It seems that request worked and now much of North Korea is mapped.
