Google’s Indoor Maps service provides detailed floor plans that automatically appear when one is zoomed in on a building. For example, if a library visitor needs to find the Science Reference Desk or a computer lab, then Indoor Maps would give them point-by-point navigation via their Android smart phone or tablet to that specific location. In this webinar, learn how libraries, college campuses, and other places can work with Google to get their space mapped for indoor guidance.

Originally broadcast April 10, 2013.
