Google is forced to bow to legal pressure around the world and show international borders differently because of diplomatic disputes. Also, it changes the borders depending on the domain that the user has entered. In 2010, there was a case when wrong Google data briefly gave a piece
of Costa Rica to neighbouring Nicaragua and troops were deployed because of that.
Benera and Estefan work reveals an unmapped world, unmarked by Google Maps, by exposing conflict zones hidden by the domain.
