Google Map Service Heads Indoors

MOUNTAIN VIEW, D.C., Nov. 29 (UPI) — Where maps are available, U.S. Internet giant Google said it will offer a service to help pedestrians get their bearings indoors.

The Tuesday launch of “My Location,” allows consumers with a mobile device outfitted with Google Maps 6.0 for Android to download maps of shopping malls, airports and other indoor terrain, Google said.

Google said it had formed initial partnerships with “some of the largest retailers, airports and transit stations in the U.S. and Japan” to get the service off the ground.

The initial partnerships include Mall of America, IKEA, The Home Depot, select Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s, Daimaru, Takashimaya and Mitsukoshi locations, Google said.

Also on line will be the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Chicago O’Hare, San Francisco International Airport, and Narita International, Google said.
