Yahoo adds indoor venue maps from Nokia Here

US: Yahoo has added more than 75,000 indoor venue maps powered by Nokia's Here mapping service – in an effort to both improve its maps offering and better rival Google Maps. These venue maps are now live on maps.yahoo.com. Nokia's Here captures, cloud-stores, and serves up location content such as road networks, buildings, parks and traffic patterns. Last summer, Here had maps in nearly 200 countries and indoor maps available in 45 countries. It also offered voice guided navigation in 94 countries and live traffic information in 33 countries.

Yahoo has now integrated Here's indoor venue maps for places like shopping malls, travel interchanges, and sports stadiums. This integration will allow Yahoo's Maps users to see inside venues, as well as map their routes indoor, find facilities like cash machines and toilets, etc.
