Google Maps has angered officials and residents of Emden, Germany, by placing their port in the Netherlands. Emden's City Council has been trying for more than a year to get back its harbor, most of which Google Maps places under Dutch sovereignty, newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung reported yesterday.
The exact location of the border between Germany and the Netherlands has been disputed since the 15th century. Bing Maps has the correct border (at least according to the German perspective), according to the report.
This isn't the first time Google Maps has been involved in a border dispute. Google Maps was blamed when Nicaragua crossed in to Costa Rican territory claiming it as part of their country last year.
