Nokia Maps HERE Venue – indoor navigation in 45 countries

Looking at the navigation options on smartphones, one thing falls very quickly on: indoor are the least useful. Google indoor maps are since December 2012 are available in Germany, but only at very select locations. Nokia wants to make it better, not only by a higher spread, but with a better mapping.


The better mapping results mintUpdate that you can not rely on any data, but actually visited the places. The data obtained are therefore more accurate than those of our competitors, writes at least Nokia. The venues are not just buildings but entire areas, such as shopping streets in London or New York.

On the infographic you see yet another numbers and kinds of data to the Nokia HERE Venue Maps. 475 million square meters have already been recorded according to Nokia (even though the infographic only 415 million square meters of calls). 1,000 buildings added per quarter, until now, there are already 49,000, which are also cross-mapped floor.

ATMs, the right gate at the airport, train stations, shops, everything is covered by the HERE Venue Maps. The positive is that even Germany is among the 45 countries that use this function. How much it here but already “expanded” is, I can not say.

HERE Nokia Maps is available free in the Windows Phone store. The Venue Maps function should be integrated directly. Has anyone ever tried it and can say something about the distribution in Germany?
