It has been another busy week for the Google Maps team with some great new additions for U.S. and European users.
Last week Google announced indoor maps for Android devices in the UK. More than 40 train stations, museums, department stores and shopping centres in the UK now have indoor floor plans on Google Maps.
Yesterday Google also released twenty indoor floor plans of museums in the U.S.. The new floor plans include the de Young Museum in San Francisco, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Cincinnati Museum Center, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the American Museum of Natural History ,17 Smithsonian museums and a zoo!
Today Google has also released bike paths and routes for Google Maps in Austria, Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
In many of these countries bike directions are also now available.
If you live in Australia there is no need to feel left out as bike lanes and bike directions have also been added to Google Maps in Australia.
