Google Maps brings indoor layouts to the desktop
Once available only on Android, the company brings indoor maps to desktop search.
Google is bringing its indoor maps to the desktop version of Google Maps, making it a bit easier to plan that Black Friday shopping spree or holiday trip to an unfamiliar airport.
The company said on Google+ today that its indoor maps, which previously were available only on Android devices, had arrived on the desktop. The indoor maps, which cover airports, shopping malls, museums and 10,000 other locations, offer floor plans and labels for things like airport gates, individual stores inside malls, ATMs and even restrooms.
A list of some of the places where indoor maps are available can be found here.
Meanwhile, Google is asking owners of other venues to contribute their floor plans to Google Maps by visiting this site.
