Google Brings Indoor Maps To Desktop Web Browsers

Right around a year ago, Google introduced the first wave of indoor maps. Being able to locate yourself while trapped within concrete walls -- in places like concert halls, shopping malls, etc. -- has been a challenge for a long while, but leave it to a company like Google to figure out a workaround. Now, the company is bringing indoor maps to desktop web browsers. Previously, Google's indoor mapping efforts were constrained to mobile. For now, Google's stepping gently into the new world. Only the main level of the available maps are available on the desktop, while multi-level buildings can be handled currently on the Android app. As of now, around 10,000 buildings are listed, and Google's working hard to expand things. Who said a ceiling had to come between you and your bearings?
