Yahoo Maps Implements Indoor Location NavigationCategory: Internet

Although Google has had the ability to provide users with maps of indoor locations for some time, the feature has just been announced for Yahoo. Director of Product Management, Fred Benz, notes that users of Yahoo Maps can now find maps for select indoor venues around the world. The implementation of the new feature is likely due to a prior partnership that Yahoo made with Nokia, using the maps and navigation services offered by Nokia. Some of the locations that have been added to Yahoo Maps include airports, shopping malls, and train stations. Contact information for businesses located within the select venues, along with an interactive building directory, is available for many of the indoor locations now found within Yahoo Maps.
The new indoor feature is only available to Yahoo users on a computer platform.
