Google maps going indoors

This very exciting video from google shows how they have started to advance their well known and widely used mapping software to feature indoor maps. That is to say maps showing the layout of shopping malls and airports so that via your android powered mobile phone you can orintate yourself to see where you are in an airport (for example) and how to get to your gate or even see what restaurants and shops are there and how you can get to them.

For now this service is only available in certain US airports and shopping malls but I'd say it's a pretty safe bet that this will find it's way to mapping French airports in due course.

It's also only currently available on Android powered smartphones but I would be surprised if this didn't make it onto the iPhone eventually.

Very exciting indeed.
