Gatwick airport gets the Google StreetView treatment

Gatwick airport gets the Google StreetView treatment

The Gatwick interior, as seen by Google StreetView.

London's second busiest airport, Gatwick, has announced it has mapped out the entire of its interior using Google StreetView.

The airport claims this is the largest implementation of Google's Indoor StreetView service in Europe, with the map made up of over 2,000 images.

The hope is that the map will help Gatwick's 34 million passengers more easily find their way around the vast complex, thanks to its including location-aware navigation and route-planning.

The map covers check-in areas, departure and arrivals halls, shops and restaurants as well as pin-pointing information hubs, charging points, play areas and toilets.

The service is freely available through the usual GoogleMaps access points, such as desktop browsers and android phones and tablets, via the Google Maps App. A direct link to the desktop service is here, or you can access it via the Gatwick website.
