It looks like Google Maps 6.0 is expanding to show indoor floor plans now:



That's before and after for a shopping mall. This also includes airports with lounges, gates, etc. Very cool... 


We’ve initially partnered with some of the largest retailers, airports and transit stations in the U.S. and Japan, including:
  • Mall of America, IKEA, The Home Depot, select Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s, Daimaru, Taskashimaya and Mitsukoshi locations and more. Watch an IKEA demo here.
  • Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), Chicago O’Hare (ORD), San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and Narita International (NRT), among others.
  • JR and Tokyu Corporation
For a detailed list of participating locations, please visit our help center. And this is just the start--we’ll continually add new indoor maps to public buildings across the world. If you’re a business owner interested in getting your location’s floor plan included in Google Maps, visit maps.google.com/floorplans.

Does it show you where seats are so you can go sit and wait while your partner spends heaps of times in the women's clothes shops ? :)

US and Japanese locations only currently. I guess its up to the various organisations that can benefit from this to submit their floorplans to Google for inclusion.

Please read the links. Companies can upload their blueprints and align to the maps.
