Sorry, aber wie dumm muss man den sein, dass man Google Maps dazu nutzt Ländergrenzen zu erkennen und diese Informationen auch noch militärisch zu verwenden ???

Haben die keine internen Informationen ?

Nicaragua Raids Costa Rica, Blames Google Maps

An error on Google Maps has caused an international conflict in Central America.

A Nicaraguan military commander, relying on Google Maps, moved troops into an area near San Juan Lake along the border between his country and Costa Rica. The troops are accused of setting up camp there, taking down a Costa Rican flag and raising the Nicaraguan flag, doing work to clean up a nearby river, and dumping the sediment in Costa Rican territory.
