Google Maps increased the number of countries that have street maps and satellite imagery with 54. “We’ve more than doubled our coverage of Latin America and are now mapping three times as many countries in Asia as before. (…) We have better detail for some countries than others, but this is just the beginning,” boasts Google LatLong Blog. While this a good news, some people complain that “the data is inaccurate and outdated” or only available “at the highway or major-road level”.
Here’s a list of the new countries, powered by Google Spreadsheets (the area is automatically generated using the GoogleLookup function and can be inaccurate). The largest country is Kazakhstan and the smallest territories are Bermuda and Aruba. Argentina, the eighth largest country in the world, is still a blank area on the map.
