Recently, I examined various online maps for their ability to provide data in the country of Georgia, a Caucasus state which was recently invaded by Russia.
Google left a lot to be desired, but today comes an announcement that more data has been added to their Georgia Maps. Notice in the screenshots below how more cities are visible upon a search for Tskhinvali today than a few weeks ago.
Still, upon a search for Abkhazia, Google takes me to a business listing in for an institute dedicated to policy in the Georgian region.
What do you think of this update? Is Google still lagging behind on data for this region of the world? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
