Google Maps Costa Rica and Nicaragua Border Debate

Google Maps Sparks Central American Border Debate

Google Maps has, at times, been slightly inaccurate when it comes to exact details in foreign countries. And now, a border drawn between Costa Rica and Nicaragua has sparked debate about where the border actually lies. A side-by-side comparison of maps from Google and Bing shows different borders in a coastal area. Now, the accuracy of the Google Maps border has been called into question.

Find out what Google has to say about the possible inaccuracy when you read more.

A Google spokesperson said, "It's inevitable that there will be occasional errors in that data, but when we find these errors, we work to update them as quickly as possible."

Nicaragua has formally requested that Google keep the border as is, while Costa Rica is requesting to have it changed, correcting the so-called mistake. This border area was not originally the subject of any dispute, but it could turn to one if an agreement with Google is not reached.
