Google has just released its first detailed maps of North Korea, one of the world's most secretive nations.

Google's maps shows everything from North Korean golf courses to detention camps for political prisoners.

The company says it relied on information from North Korean citizens living outside the country.

The vast majority of North Koreans can't access Google.

The company's executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, made a controversial visit to North Korea earlier this month.
