Yahoo Korean-Language Map Service is here!

According to a report, Yahoo Korea has launched a Korean-language satellite image and map searching service that can be used on the Web without installing additional programs.

The global map service is Yahoo's attempt to distinguish itself from locally grown portal sites such as Naver and Daum. The two Korean portals have operated their own map search services, which only covers South Korea.

Surfing the globe with free satellite imagey has become a poplar hobby for some since Google launched the Google Earth service. But Yahoo is the first to localize the service into the Korean language on the Web. About 2.2 million names of cities, mountains, streets, buildings and tourist spots all over the world are available in Korean and can be searched on Yahoo Korea's Web site, the firm said.
