Google brings indoor mapping to CES

BT Online Bureau     January 9, 2012
Google Maps had recently released a new feature called indoor maps which enables you to figure out where you are and see where you might want to go when you're indoors. Reports said that Google has now brought this feature for International Consumer Electronics Show, which starts from Tuesday in Las Vegas.

With more than four decades of success, the International Consumer Electronics Show reaches across global markets, connects the industry and enables CE innovations to grow and thrive.

Detailed floor plans automatically appear when you're viewing the map and zoomed in on a building where indoor map data is available. The familiar "blue dot" icon indicates your location within several meters, and when you move up or down a level in a building with multiple floors, the interface will automatically update to display which floor you're on. All this is achieved by using an approach similar to that of 'My Location' for outdoor spaces, but fine tuned for indoors.

The International CES is owned and produced by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), the preeminent trade association promoting growth in the $186 billion U.S. consumer technology industry.
