Speaking of Google Maps...

...anyone know why maps.google.com doesn't cover China in the detail that ditu.google.com does? I don't think it's non-Western language support, because maps.google.com covers Japan the same way maps.google.co.jp does.

For example:


查看大图


View Larger Map

Maybe it's a data licensing thing? maps.google.com says its China map data is copyright AND and Europa Technologies, whereas ditu.google.com credits Mapabc.com.

Edit: The embedded maps show up just fine in Xjournal, but not when I look at my page.
