Nokia today announced some details on the HERE Venue Maps available for Nokia Lumia devices and Bing Maps. Nokia HERE Maps now features 49,000 buildings in 45 countries. This doesn’t only include shopping malls, but also stadiums, theme parks, historic streets, or other outdoor spaces, such as Carnaby Village and golf clubs.
We create precise Venue Maps by not only collecting floor plans, but by also physically visiting venues to ensure that our data is more accurate than those from competitors.
When the HERE team visits a venue they make sure the shapes and dimensions of the buildings and their facilities are correct so that what you see in our Venue Maps reflects what you see in reality. If the building has multiple floors, we also include those. This means that you can find what you’re looking for, no matter what floor it’s on.
We also add the useful attributes, such as ATM locations, escalators, different stores, gate numbers, and restrooms, across all floors.
Nokia has also posted a short guide on how to use this Venue maps on your Nokia Lumia device. You can read it with screenshots from the link below.
