Published by at

Nokia's HERE division today shared an infographic on Twitter showcasing the latest coverage stats for its venue maps. There are now indoor maps for more than 50,000 building in 69 countries, with a total coverage of more than 1 billion square metres.

These venue maps can be viewed on and in the HERE Maps app for Windows Phone. The maps are also available for licensing by third parties and thus also appear on other websites (e.g. Microsoft's Bing Maps) and in other apps.

Venue maps are generally used to provide maps of rooms or spaces within a building (e.g. shops in a shopping centre, or facilities in a train station), but some of HERE's venue maps cover combine both indoors and outdoor elements (e.g. shopping district in a city).
