Google Maps: 54 Countries Added, How Many Left?

With detailed map data being added to more and more countries all the time in Google Maps — 54 countries were added last Thursday — the holdout countries are beginning to stick out. Now that much of Latin America and Asia is online, for example, Argentina and Israel are conspicuous by their emptiness. At some point there is a tipping point where we’re more surprised by the absence of a country’s details on a mapping service than its presence. We may well have just passed that point with Google Maps.
