Indoor Google Maps

Starting today, with the release of Indoor Google Maps for Android in Singapore, you are able to determine where you are, what floor you’re on, and where are the shops located with regards to your current location in the shopping mall.

Detailed floor plans will automatically appear when you’re viewing the map and zoomed in on a building where indoor map data is available. And, in certain locations, you will have the option of using the indoor My Location feature to help you navigate your way inside. The familiar “blue dot” icon can indicate your approximate location, 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 initial 22 popular shopping destinations in Singapore are:

  • 313@somerset
  • Century Square
  • Hougang Mall
  • ION Orchard
  • Liang Court
  • Mandarin Gallery
  • Marina Bay Sands
  • Metro (Department store in Paragon)
  • Ngee Ann City
  • Orchard Central
  • Paragon
  • Parkway Parade
  • Scotts Square
  • Suntec City
  • Takashimaya (Department store in Ngee Ann)
  • Tampines 1
  • The Centrepoint
  • Tiong Bahru Plaza
  • Triple one
  • Wheelock Place
  • White Sands
  • Wisma Atria

Google will continue to add new indoor maps to public buildings across Singapore. If you’re a Singaporean business owner interested in getting your location’s floor plan included in Google Maps, visit maps.google.com/floorplans.
