Google publishes detailed maps of North Korea for the first time
It says "citizen cartographers" used map making software to add the data
The maps show the reclusive regime's main nuclear complex and gulags
Google's executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, visited North Korea this month
Ever wondered how to drive from the center of Pyongyang, the showcase capital of North Korea, to Yongbyon, the location of the secretive regime’s main nuclear complex?
Well, a recent update to Google Maps has the answer for you.
It has filled in the big, largely blank space that previously lay north of the well-mapped South Korea with streets, towns and landmarks.
Users curious to virtually explore one of the world’s most reclusive states can zoom into the heart of Pyongyang and pull up photographs of the Kumsusan Memorial Palace, which houses the bodies of the revered former leaders Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.
