Ditu Maps Chinese Political Prisoners

Ditu MyMap of Chinese Prisoners of Conscience

Someone has created an excellent MyMap of Chinese netizens, lawyers, journalists and others who have been imprisoned in China for their political beliefs.

The individuals are shown on the map with thumbnail pictures and each thumbnail map marker includes a brief description of their alleged crime and a link to their page on Wikipedia.

Ditu is the Chinese localized version of Google Maps. Ditu is maintained on Chinese servers, which are subject to Chinese law (more on this in this Ogle Earth post). Therefore if this map interests you I would check it out quickly, as I'm not sure how long it will remain.
