Where did the major news events occur in China this year? And where was China's influence felt most acutely overseas? China Digital Times has put together a Google Map marking the locations of some of China's major stories in 2012. This is not a complete list but includes the stories that we felt had the biggest impact this past year. This is a work in progress and we may add to it in coming days.
