What would we do today without geolocation or Google Maps? Younger generations amaze at how we used to be able to arrive at our destination with a simple road map. This was the case for the inhabitants of South Korea, the only country in the world without access to Google Maps.
A little bit of history
All this fuss comes from a 1947 South Korean law that forces the government to impose all kinds of measures and restrictions to protect the country of South Korea. Hence, mapping information of this country could not be yielded to Google. However, if you access Maps you will see the information of this country with a different style, since this American company has been replaced by local ones, like KakaoMap.
KakaoMap will show you the fastest routes in Korea!
How it works
The Korean company Kakao Corp. has created this application so that you can find all you are looking for in a digital map. Thus, this tool offers routes for cars, public transport, bikes, and pedestrians, as well as information in real-time on the fastest routes and waiting times.
You don't have to install another navigation app, since this one is autonomous. Besides, you can use the two-dimensional visualization, a 3D map or even the bird's-eye view, so you can see the buildings in three dimensions. In addition, it indicates places interest according to their location, like restaurants, shops and sports centers.
