South Korea’s Ministry of Unification will launch on Monday a new web portal focused on North Korea.
The North Korea Information Portal, or NK Info for short, is intended to provide South Koreans with up to date information on the DPRK, the Unification Ministry said.
Here are some screenshots of what you can expect from Monday, January 27:
Information on the site will be divided in several main sections: political, military, economic, social, cultural and education.
Within those sections, subsections will further organize the available data.
For example, within the political category there will be sections covering the main ideology of the DPRK, its political system, its power structure and significant figures and its efforts in diplomacy.
One of the most interesting features of the site, especially for foreign visitors, will be a North Korea map service based on the VWorld system of the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs.
It will be available at nkinfo.unikorea.go.kr and apparently will be in the Korean language only.
I wonder if the map service will borrow from the North’s map programs.
