As you already know, Google finally got permission to operate its search engine in China. At least for now, the company maintains a position to offer a landing page (page of arrival), from which Internet users can get to Google Hong Kong, which need not go through the censorship that the Chinese law imposes. Now is the time to think of maps.
Google maps service, at least for me, it becomes increasingly essential. He’s the one I find the most practical ways to reach certain parts of the city. China could be the same thing, but instead, the government requires that each company maps ask for authorization to operate in the country. So far, 23 companies have obtained the release, but none of them is Google.
Google refuses to make censorship but only companies that agree not to display layers of collaborative information (such as Wikipedia) in the maps, as well as accept display approved maps for the Chinese dictatorship (which pose as Chinese territory regions that are targets of dispute and controversy until today).
Interestingly, Google maintains a link to Google.com.hk on Google.cn, but who accesses the site supposedly without Hong Kong censorship and click the map service is taken to the Chinese Google Maps, passing by the censorship (and not Hong Kong).
