Bangalore: Nokia unveiled a new venue mapping facility in India for over 20 cities including Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Bangalore among the others. The facility is launched under the existing Nokia mapping service, HERE; as reported by Hindu.

The service enables the users to browse maps and location data for the inside floor plan of buildings especially while looking for a particular store inside a mall or location of the elevator. The HERE Venue services will be available only on the Nokia Lumia and Asha range of Smartphones. Although HERE maps are available as an application on other Windows Phone 8 and iOS devices, the venue mapping service won’t be available on non-Nokia devices.

In order to access location based maps, the Nokia website shares the following instructions; "If indoor map of the venue is available, you can view it by tapping the grey building icon. To select the floor in the building, tap the floor icon in the map view. To view the details of a place inside the building, tap the desired place in the indoor map. To return back to the normal map view, tap the map area outside the building."

The company had introduced indoor mapping facility with the Destination Maps on Nokia maps. Even though rivals like Google Indoor Maps have a tough competition, Google’s indoor mapping services are not available in India as of now. Other services offered by HERE include HERE Maps, HERE Drive (+), HERE Transit and HERE City Lens.
