Google Map of Shedding light on North Korea

Info Map Comments (1) Related Files


I created this set (330+ placemarks) because I found this country lacks a lot. Not only placemarks. Particular points of interest are the capital city of P'yongyang and the border to South Korea. Besides this the country is plastered with anti-aircraft sites. Sometimes it is quiet evident what they protect and sometimes they look unfinished or abandoned/dismantled. And I am sure I did not find all and have mistakingly identified a site where it might be something else.

At P'yongyang you can see yourself that this propably the best protected city in the world, at least against air raids. Besides the many many anti-aircraft sites I placed a lot of site-seeing placemarks in P'yongyang. You may find that some interesting looking places have been left out. This is the case because either the place looks interesting but is of minor importance (restuarants and most indoor stadiums just for example) or I could not identify it (The shiny silver dome in down-town P'yongyang for example). I gave my very best to identify the important spots but I did not succed on everything. I took my reference data (maps, commented photographs) from a lot of sites on the internet and cross-verified many of them. If you think you provided some of this information yourself, let me thank you.

At the border I placed some current and historical placemarks. Searching the web for these in combination with the Korean War will for sure bring up some quiet interesting links into the history of this area.

Finaly there's folder "Other stuff" which contains more or less interesting observations. Mixed bag of military, fun and strange stuff all over the place.

It took me many many hours to complete this collection so don't complain too much .

Enjoy

Icons in red are anti-aircraft sites and have their labels turned off (opacity 0%), icons in green are site-seeing, icons in blue are border placemarks and finaly those in yellow are other stuff.
