Munich Airport first with Indoor Maps by Google
07 December 2012
Munich Airport has become one of the first organizations in Germany to sign up with Google’s Indoor Maps service. The worldwide Google Maps service is now moving indoors, offering maps of the interiors of large public buildings such as airports, shopping malls and museums. That means that anyone with a smartphone or tablet running the mobile operating system can use it to find their way around all levels of these buildings and use wireless network data there to check their location. The Google Maps app for Android shows maps of both terminals and the Munich Airport Centre. Just like in Google city maps, users can retrieve details on many restaurants, shops and other highlighted destinations. Starting immediately, Google Indoor Maps will put yet another resource in the hands of passengers and visitors for finding out about options available to them before they start their journey or arrive at the airport.
