Google Indoor Maps to include malls and museums in India

Google now brings virtual tours of malls and museums in India through its indoor Maps. This service was already available in countries such as the U.S., Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong and the Netherlands.

Google's updated indoor Maps includes Ambience Mall in Gurgaon and Saelect City Walk in Delhi. In addition to metro cities, locations in cities such as Bhopal, Coimbatore, Chandigarh, Dehradun, Jaipur, Kochi, Lucknow, Ludhiana and Moradabad have also been added to the new service. More cities will be added to the list in the near future.

Apart from malls, updated indoor maps will include National Gallery of Modern Art in Delhi, Salar jung museum in Hyderabad and Hyderabad International Convention Centre.

“Using indoor maps, users will find it easy to locate stores, especially in an unfamiliar shopping mall or when they plan a visit to a museum like Salar jung in Hyderabad. With Indoor Google Maps in India, people can access detailed floor plans for 75 popular indoor venues with a few easy swipes,” Google India Director and Product Manager (Maps) Suren Ruhela is quoted as saying.
