Nokia really needs to tell us more about these things. Google is getting all the attention on it’s indoor mapping while Nokia has even wider range available.
To date, we have mapped 4605 venues – shopping malls, retail stores, airports, and transit hubs – in 38 countries with more being added every month. This is over a 2000% increase in just 16 months. Wait until you see what happens in the next 16 months. – Nokia Conversation
Nokia also reminds us that it’s mapping is more advanced and shows more, while having more locations than competition.
While other providers claim to have powerful indoor map offerings with a large number of venues mapped, Destination Maps are not just the average 2D floor plans that can be viewed on a device. Our indoor map content enables a full end-to-end experience, making the exploration and discovery of indoor places more realistic. Further, Destination Maps include a wealth of interior map attributes, like escalators, floor levels, ATMS and restrooms. Including these important points allows for more advanced and accurate guidance and routing. – Nokia Conversation
What Nokia really needs to improve is actually getting all this data to usable form. I hope we see a lot more about this when Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 devices get announced.
As always, Nokia offers Destination Maps across all devices and PNDs. Already, Bing Maps has implemented this location content into their maps with the announcement of Bing Venue Maps last month. - Nokia Conversation
