Google Maps has offered indoor floor plans for quite some time, and now Yahoo is doing the same. Thanks to Nokia Here, Yahoo Maps now packs building layouts, directories and contact info for places like shopping malls, train stations and airports. This means you'll be able to locate restrooms and ATMs across multiple levels of football stadiums and other places in advance. The Finnish company introduced venue mapping back in 2012, and has since amassed info on over 75,000 venues. The Here integration should come as no surprise, though, as Yahoo and Nokia have been collaborating on cartography since 2010.
