Google Maps Rolls out Store Floor Plans to Web Version

by Shane McGlaun

With Black Friday here if you’re planning on going out and doing a lot of shopping today, you may want to plan your route using a new service available on Google Maps. Google has added indoor layouts for some stores and malls to the web version of Google Maps. The update brings indoor floor plans for over 10,000 locations around the world, and include other indoor maps for locations like museums and airports as well.

Those locations include retail stores and more. Indoor floor plans have been available on Android for some time now, but this marks the first time indoor store layouts have been brought to the web-based version of Google Maps. Google says it has brought the indoor layout service to the web version just in time for holiday shopping.

The cool part is if you’re wondering around the store looking for a specific item, the layouts will tell you specifically where you can find certain sections such as tools and hardware or electronics. Other than retail stores there also indoor layouts for airports, museums, universities, and Las Vegas casinos on Google Maps. iOS users can even take advantage of the new service by going to maps.google.com using Safari.

Businesses interested in having their buildings added to Google Maps, can go here to upload their own floorplans.
