Google introduced Google Maps Floor Plan Marker App which enables those who’ve uploaded floor plans to improve the indoor location accuracy their visitors experience when using indoor maps within their venue.

According to the description in Google Play, the Google Maps Floor Plan Market App helps Google Maps show users their location more accurately within indoor venues. Walk around the floors in a popular, public building to collect publicly broadcast data, and afterwards, users of the Google Maps Android app will be able to see their location (“the familiar blue dot”) in those floors when they’re inside the venue. Note that you must first upload a floor plan. Likely to be of interest mostly to map enthusiasts and venue owners.
