While the biggest shopping centre in the southern hemisphere, Chadstone, is yet to get a map of its own (that would be some task), users will be able to upload their own floorplans, with maps automatically loading on the device when users zoom in on a location.
Some but not all locations will also apparently utilise the Google Maps famous ‘blue dot’ function, which users have been able to use outdoors to track where they are located as they move.
Google Australia said in a blog post today that it plans to continue adding new indoor maps throughout the year, along with the user-added maps.
Google had already released indoor maps for eight other countries: US, UK, France, Japan, Canada, Sweden, Denmark and Switzerland.
Google has uploaded indoor maps of over 10,000 locations worldwide, with a full list for Australia available here.
There's no word on iPhone availability as of yet.
