By STARS AND STRIPES Published: January 29, 2013

Google Maps recently made changes to the North Korea map adding a detailed map that labels everything from Pyongyang's subway stops to the country's several city-sized gulags, monuments, hotels, hospitals and even department stores, according to the Washington Post.

Until recent changes were made, North Korea appeared on Google Maps as an almost all-white space labeling only the capital city, Pyongyang.
