I emailed westfields and centro, both are operators of shopping
centres, about getting access to their floor plans in the various
shopping centres they operate to add to OSM, unfortunately I received
no reply at the time, maybe this is why.
An anonymous reader writes "Google maps are getting extended indoors
next month with a new app called Micello that takes over where
conventional navigators leave off — mapping your route inside of
buildings, malls, convention centers and other points of interest. You
don't get a 'you are here' blinking dot yet — but they do promise to
add one next year using WiFi triangulation. At the introduction next
month, Micello will only work in California, but they plan to expand
to other major US cities during 2010."
