Washington, Nov.8 (ANI): Google Maps is correcting its faulty maps of Nicaragua and Costa Rica after becoming the culprit in the latest border dispute between the two Central American countries.

According to the Daily Mail, Google’s Charlie Hale admitted Google had made a mistake and assured readers it would be fixed as soon as possible.

He said: “We determined that there was indeed an error in the compilation of the source data, by up to 2.7 km (1.6 mi).”

“The U.S. Department of State has provided a corrected version and we are now working to update our maps,” he added.

The nearly 200-year-old border dispute reignited in mid-October after Nicaragua started dredging the San Juan to restore its route to what it was a century and a half ago, according to news reports. (ANI)
