Google Earth Admits Goof-up on Arunachal

Google has admitted that it committed a mistake by wrongly depicting certain parts of north-east India’s Arunachal Pradesh as Chinese territory, and promised to correct the maps soon.

According to a statement by a Google spokesperson, “Earlier this week, as part of routine update to Google Earth, we published new data for the Arunachal Pradesh region that changed the depiction of certain place names in the product. The change was a result of a mistake in our processing of new map data.”
