Google Maps to Reach 10,000 Indoor Maps Venues Worldwide
In addition to indoor maps, Google is also enabling indoor location and in-building way finding inside these venues. For example, inside a museum, you can plan your route from exhibit to exhibit, identifying points of interest along the way, including between floors.
To access the indoor maps, open Google Maps on an Android phone or tablet and zoom in on the venue of interest. For example, to find the museum, either search for it by name using the magnifying glass icon or, if you’re already there, use the MyLocation feature for orientation. With the “My location” feature enabled you can get indoor walking directions.
