I am going to guess that you are an Apple Fan. Google will lead the way in adding indoor maps. Apple will in the future do the same, change the looks a little, and then claim it was their idea and sell it to everyone in a brand new iPhone. Just my prediction.

Actually yes, but im thinking Airport Indoor navigation could be really good, specially for travelers who are in unfamiliar airports daily.

Or for tourists in one of those big *ss malls who go in there finding something in particular. Not something that you might use everyday, but something that can be very useful in one specific moment.
