Our Chinese Mapping Services Application? Must Have Gotten Lost in the Gmail.

If Google wants to continue offering its mapping service in China, it best step lively. The licensing deadline is tomorrow, and as of Tuesday, China’s State Bureau of Surveying and Mapping hadn’t received an application from the company, a requirement under regulations announced last May.

It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
