Google Maps China Now Live

Bill at WebmasterWorld notifies us that Google launched a Chinese version of Google Maps. You can see Google Maps China at

I assume ditu is maps in Chinese? :-)

Based on the thread, it appears that:

  • City detail is very limited
  • Major roads are available
  • Cities like Shanghai and Beijing have more detail than others
  • Suspicions that this map service is powered directly from a 3rd party source, possibly
  • The main Google Maps has more details on Hong Kong then this China version
