You may read stories about Taiwan complaining about its representation in Google Earth. But, the problem is with Google Maps more so than Google Earth. In Google Maps, if you type Taiwan, the result on the map simply says “Taiwan”, but the location is described as “Taiwan, Province of China”. Taiwan is in an uproar and wants it changed to “Republic of Taiwan”. However, in Google Earth both the map and the description simply reads “Taiwan”. One of the first to break the story was The Register, and they probably helped stimulate this misconception. So, many of the headlines are wrong unless they say “Google Maps”.
