Maps, I do like. Not only are they pretty, they are pretty useful, especially if you are unfamiliar with the area. Map and compass in hand, you can walk at your leisure and not get lost, or at least be able to get help from the locals when you do. But which maps are the best for China? I thought I’d do a map slugfest, comparing Google (line and satellite), 360, Sougou and Baidu. I chose 150 meters of Shandong, Changdao on Jiefang (Liberation) Road as an example.
我喜欢地图。 除了很漂亮意外， 它们也很好用，特别要是你对这个地方不熟悉。 地图和指南针zai 手里你可以随便走路不怕迷路， 或者一迷路可以让本地人给你帮忙。 在中国哪个地图最好呢？ 我想比较， 用谷歌 （线的和卫星的）， 360, 搜狗 和百度比较。 我选择了150米的山东长岛的解放路来比如。
If I was to choose only one map, I would choose Baidu. It had the best colour contrast, the most landmarks and is in Chinese. Of course if you are traveling to China you need a Chinese map. Google’s map had Chinese but simply missed many shops and other landmarks. Sougou had a little more landmarks but not as full as Baidu. Sougou’s map also lacked colour contrast, making the map hard to read. 360’s map had more shops and landmarks than Sougou, and less than Baidu, but the colour contrast in the map was weak, making the 360 map the hardest to read.
要是我就是选择一个地图， 我选择百度。 百度有最好的颜色对比度，有最多地标, 也用中文。 当然要是你去中国旅游你肯定要带一个中文地图。 谷歌的地图有中文， 但是好多地标和商店就没有了。 搜狗有一点多的地标， 但是没有百度多。 搜狗的地图也少了颜色对比度， 地图不容易看懂。 360的地图比搜狗地标和商店多， 比百度少， 但是地图的颜色对比度很虚弱， 最很难看懂的。
Only Google had a satellite map, and it is good. The street names are a little off. You can see how many buildings there are on the map. Was this comparison useful? 就是谷歌有卫星地图，也很好的。街道的名字有一点不准确。 你可以看那么多大楼在地图。 这个比较好用吗？
Baidu Map: Shandong, Changdao, Jiefang Lu, 150 meters, has lots of landmarks. It is the best map for China.
360 Map: Shandong, Changdao, Jiefang Lu, 150 meters, has lots of landmarks but less than Baidu. Lots of landmarks and shops but colour contrast is not good.
Sougou Map: Shandong, Changdao, Jiefang Lu, 150 meters, lacks landmarks and shops. Colour contrast is also not good.
Google Map: Shandong, Changdao, Jiefang Lu, 150 meters, has the fewest landmarks and shops but is in Chinese and English. Good colour contrast.
Google Satellite Map: Shandong, Changdao, Jiefang Lu, 150 meters, is the only satellite map so it stands alone in greatness. It really shows the business of the city. Some of the line map street names are overlayed but are not accurately placed.
