Google Maps error reignites medieval border dispute

In the latest in a series of Google-driven international incidents, Google Maps gave the German port city of Emden to the Netherlands. The exact location of the border has been disputed since the 15th century.

The Germans have control of the entire Ems River estuary, but the Dutch claim the estuary and the city lie between the northern Netherlands and Germany.

Google is reviewing the situation and promised to make changes. Google also advises that "no country should use this [map] to invade another."
