venue_bianryIn a first, HERE has started offering Venue maps (the indoor maps) API to developers. HERE is the pioneer and leader in case of indoor maps as well with more than 75,000 buildings in more than 70 countries worldwide already mapped.

The HERE Venue Maps REST API gives developers access to maps and information about thousands of venues across the world – including shopping malls, airports and train stations. It also includes information about entrances and exits; stairs, elevators and escalators; and points-of-information like toilets and cash machines.

This is really good of Nokia to reach developers with indoor mapping solution which will give them upper hand on Google in mapping space.
