Hmm: Georgia a Blank Country on Google Maps

Seems a bit Stalinist, no? Maybe they're waiting for Russia to rename the cities.

This is the view as of 8:10 am on August 12. Always subject to change, of course.

Update: As some readers have noted in the comments, it appears Georgia is not the only country that comes up blank on Google maps, so it seems this just happens to be coincidental. Note Armenia and Azerbaijan, for example. Still, it would be interesting to know why this is and whether it's related to security issues and/or requests by those countries to not be mapped in detail.
