Indoor Google Maps For Android Now Available in 22 Shopping Spots in Singapore


Singapore’s shopping centers can be big and confusing. If you’re as lost as me when it comes to navigating when shopping, then Indoor Google Maps feature will be something you need. Google announced today that its Indoor Google Maps feature is available in 22 shopping spots in Singapore (see below for full list) with most of them in the Orchard shopping area.

The floor plans will appear when you zoom into a building where indoor map data is available. For some locations, you will also be able to navigate your way within the shopping malls — for example, to get you from your current location to a nearby store within the mall. Singapore becomes only the second country in Asia to get these indoor maps, after an earlier roll-out in Japan.

In Singapore, we also have YFind for indoor mapping, focusing on helping users find shops, ATMs, and those all-important toilets.

Singaporean business owners who want their location to be mapped can find out more information here.

I’ve also embedded two videos about Google’s indoor mapping below. One explaining how indoor mapping works and another is an indoor map promo video from Japan (in Japanese).
