Skift Take

Google’s thorough and ubiquitous mapping efforts will not only change the way we travel (maps being the top travel app), but also boost its profits as users switch to Android for the native navigation experience.

Today, the Google Maps team announced an update for 10 areas in Europe: Andorra, Bulgaria, Estonia, Gibraltar, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain.

It’s not just driving directions that are important for Google Maps users, it’s walking paths, bus and train lines, as well as in-depth campus views for students at colleges and universities. Google is also expanding to indoor mapping as well.
