Google has released the Google Maps Floor Plan Marker app, which enables venue owners who’ve uploaded floor plans to improve the indoor location accuracy their visitors experience when using indoor maps within their venue. Google had already introduced Google Maps Floor Plans as a tool for business owners to upload the floor plans for their venue and have them appear in Google Maps for Android.
The Google Maps Floor Plan Marker app, guides you through the process of walking around the entire surface area of your place of interest while gathering position data from GPS, public WiFi signals and cell towers. The information, once added to Googles’s database, will allow the My Location feature’s familiar “blue dot” icon accessible for Android users when they’re inside the venue.
This information will ultimately help visitors and customers to see where they are and what’s around them. Currently this app is available for people in the United States through Google Play.
