Map World, Google Earth Competitor from China

Google's fate was not too good in China. They had trouble with the relevant local government internet censorship policy - although the company eventually led Eric Schmidt is still able to operate there.

Google's search engine market in China continues to decline, eroded by the skyrocketing popularity of locally-made search engine, Baidu.

The final step was taken by the Chinese government will surely not too much fun Google. Through the State Bureau of Surveying and Mapping, they launched an online mapping service called the World Map. This service is projected to challenge the Google Earth service in the future.

World Map can be accessed free of charge and allows its user to search for two or three-dimensional images across the face of the earth. To explore it, Internet users simply visit the site or and do not need to install the service like Google Earth.

Quoted from Asia One, Saturday (10/23/2010), the Chinese government seems quite optimistic with the prospect of the World Map. They believe this service will quickly popular, at least at the national level.

"In the near future, the World Map will grow into a famous Chinese brand in the online map services market proven reliability," said Director of State Bureau of Surveying and Mapping of China, Xu Deming.

World Map featuring satellite images with a resolution of 500 meters. Resolution can be increased up to 2.5 meters for a map of China and 0.6 meters in particular to map more than 300 cities in China.

"It took two years to prepare for this service with all the satellite images taken from 2006 to 2010," added officials, Jiang Jie.

Although in future World Map is expected to compete with Google Earth, but China remains realistic. They called the World Map is still in its early stages and too much if present should be compared with Google's product, which is already far more established.

"The service is expected to update the geological data twice a year, while Google Earth is able to update every few minutes via satellite. The service also will be supported by more than 80 virtual machines to serve 10 million requests per day, while Google Earth has thousands of virtual machines, "said Jiang.

Google has not yet reacted associated launch this service. A spokesman for them in China, Marsha Wang, could not comment.
