Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) has officially revised its Google Maps application to include North Korea, an area once displayed as blank space. The company has said it was able to do so via crowdsourcing, thanks to "citizen cartographers," ordinary people using a program called Map Maker to deliver high-quality North Korean cartographic data. In this video, Motley Fool research analyst Lyons George discusses the new maps, including Google's shocking decision to include North Korea's infamous prison camps.
