North-Korea-Maps

North Korea may not have a reputation for being a warm and friendly place, but if you ever managed to get your Dennis Rodman on and visit the country, it would be helpful to know your way around. Thankfully driving directions for select areas in North Korea are now available from Google Maps. Last year, with the help of its Google Maps Maker tool, Mountain View managed to scale its efforts to survey North Korea’s landscape. As a result, more local driving directions are starting to surface.

Available from desktop and mobile applications, this community developed barebones version of Maps lacks features like public transportation directions, however it does support routes for pedestrians looking to go for a stroll. Considering North Korea’s restrictive stance on internet access, this work in progress is likely aimed at visitors or the country’s privileged.
