The Google Maps Platform is a set of APIs and SDKs that allows developers to embed Google Maps into mobile apps and web pages, or to retrieve data from Google Maps in order to build real-time location awareness into their apps.
Google has chosen MapsPeople as a preferred indoor mapping partner.
Combining Google and MapsIndoors creates endless opportunities for innovation within mapping, including seamless outdoor-to-indoor wayfinding.
A MapsIndoors solution built on Google consists of six layers. The bottom layer is the Google map, which serves as the foundation of the solution.
The second layer is the clients' floor plans. Once the floor plans are in place, we create the third layer that consists of an Indoor Route Network and add the Google Directions API. This layer ensures accurate wayfinding.
Layer four consists of custom points of interest you add to your solution, e.g. meeting rooms, cafés, bathrooms, exits, etc.
The fifth layer contains the 2D objects, such as tables and chairs.
Lastly, we add dynamic integrations in the sixth and final layer. Dynamic integrations include live availability, booking, IoT sensors, asset tracking, and more.
