Google launched Indoor Maps and Floor Plans for Android, a tool for business owners to upload the floor plans for their venue and have them appear in Google Maps for Android. The newly-released Google Maps Floor Plan, available through Google Play, collects data from sources such as GPS, cell tower, and publicly broadcast WiFi information and then guides business owners as they walks around the entire surface of their business to develop a map for users.
Customers will be able to see which floor they’re on in buildings with multiple floors.
Google would need to keep a close eye on the development of OpenStreetMap, a crowdsourced alternative mapping project has been snagging high profile users lately.
