Google China’s Travel Help Map

Parts of China are covered in above-average snow recently, making it hard for some to travel for the upcoming Chinese New Year festivities. Now Google China features a special layer at Google Maps: (“dìtú” is Pinyin for “地图” meaning “map”). The page consists of special placemarks of weather and travel conditions. (Note Google Maps China misses the satellite layer, quite possibly due to local government pressure.)
