The indoor floor plans that you’ve been using on Google Maps for Android (http://goo.gl/z7G3p) to figure out where you are and what’s around you within many popular indoor locations are now available on Google Maps for your desktop!

Before heading home for the holidays or out to shop on Black Friday, check out indoor maps of the airport or shopping mall on your desktop to better plan your trip. Simply zoom in on a building on Google Maps and you’ll automatically see a detailed floor plan with helpful labels for gates at the airport, stores within the mall, departments within a retail shop, as well as ATMs, restrooms and more.

Accurate and easy-to-use indoor maps are currently available for select venues -- including transit stations, libraries, museums -- in certain countries. A list of some participating locations across the globe can be found here: http://goo.gl/SlA8c 

And if you’re a venue owner interested in adding your floor plan to Google Maps, please visit the Google Maps Floor Plan tool (http://maps.google.com/floorplans), where launched, to help customers get acquainted with your location.

Testing this out at UCSD's Geisel Library... but no control for changing levels is visible.
 
Lol give terrorists even more tools to attack us why don't you 
 
Can't wait for y'all to migrate this to an iOS app.  Please...
 
This is all very nice but how come I can only look at plans for one floor. On mobile I can switch between plans for each level of a building.
 
Fantastic work! Looking forward to indoor floor plans outside of the U.S. (Canada here!).
 
It helps them plan and learn building schematics strategic strike points its a useful tool 
 
I admit it: I get lost in malls and could really use this!
 
That is exactly what I want my outdoor/indoor map experience to be - seamless! Thank you, +Google Maps 
 
+Jim Miller - I don't think it will make a difference as long as Apple Maps is the default map system in iOS. :-/
 
All nice and all, but how do I go a level down or up in a mall? (Switzerland)
 
You can always use another mapping product. I have Apple stuff and others and so far I havent been visited by the ghost of Steve Jobs.  One look at me, and he would just laugh...
 
This is great!  It's hard to remember back before there were Google Maps -- I find myself using it daily.

Next Challenge: Indoor directions!  This would be especially sweet in combination with Google Now's Flight notifications so that I know I need to leave a restaurant to get to my gate on time ;-)
 
OMG, this is amazing!!! Thank you, Google Maps :)
 
I'm working on a cool (ok I think it is) app for indoor "locations". Kind of like a object targeted GPS, but not GPS per say, as in where is mens shoes in store X and were did I park? (I need the last one, I've been lost so many times, as in The Mall of America) Invented just to avoid having to wander around, looking stupid...)
 
it will only get better.trust GOOGLE MAPS.
 
So much better than the crappy overlay on Bing.
 
No wait, Bing does more than just the ground floor level.
 
Now if we can get traffic areas in the malls, or at least how long the lines are.. 
 
How can you see other floors? On the app you can switch between floors, can't do that on desktop?
 
Výborné pokračovanie ......... v rozvoji funkčnosti, len ma zaujíma ako to funguje vo viacpodlažných budovách?

We are making. Fun little project that could help with indoor mapping. Hoping to share the results in 2 weeks
 
This is so cool. I've been trying to figure out how to access the in door maps. I just viewed two local malls. Thanks Google.
 
Now if only ASU would upload some maps we'd be in business.
 
nice, but without the level switcher in the desktop version, it is useless. Hope the level switcher comes soon.
 
Yeah it's missing the level switcher, but it's awesome to see in Desktop Maps.
 
Hope it's available in Germany soon.
Frankfurt Airport would be a nice idea :)
 
As a new Jersey realtor, I add search menues to my custom maps. Will this application be available to add to custom maps? It would be neat to add this feature to some houses I place on a map and client can"virtually walk around the home"
 
Add product location and you can use it to optimize your shopping routes.
 
We’re excited to bring the indoor maps feature that’s already available on Android devices to desktop versions of Google Maps. This is the first stage of the desktop rollout, and we look forward to including additional levels and continuing to add floor plans for more buildings around the world to help people figure out where they are and where they want to go indoors. For more information, visit our Help Center: http://goo.gl/xXpRF
 
Great feature but can we use it while creating custom maps for our clients. For example I am a realtor, it would be great to add some details to a map where I add a house I am selling.
 
can i know which floor i am in
 
@Jacky Pan yep, Google uses Public WiFi to detect your current floor ;)

I can only see one floor it's essentially useless unless you are able to scroll between them for example. Victoria station in London only shows the 1st floor of the shopping centre rather than the actual main concourse. What's the point ? 
 
Can you not read ? "This is the first stage of the desktop rollout, and we look forward to including additional levels and continuing to add floor plans for more buildings around the world to help people figure out where they are and where they want to go indoors." 
 
What ? no I can't actually I'm can just type. I'm saying its crappy that they didn't include this in their 1st rollout.
 
+Google Maps  Can i input my own home floor plan ? let's say that i want to identify where i'm standing (kitchen, living room, etc... ). do you think it's possible to get to that level of accuracy? and if i can, can i prevent it from being public? i would love to get more information about this feature and i'd be happy it if you could contact me... Thanks....
