Yorkdale Shopping Centre Hits Street View

109streetviewThe days of getting lost in the mall might be coming to an end, as Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre has just announced a major milestone: it’s the first North American shopping center to have interior images featured on Google Maps.

The Indoor Maps project has grown to include thousands of shopping centers, airports and other destinations. Zooming down to floor level and pinpointing one’s location via GPS is great, but with the addition of Street View photos, shoppers can orient themselves with all the visual landmarks they could possibly need. And all of us can play virtual tourist and window shop from afar.

The center worked with Wisdek Corp to complete the 360-degree imagery needed.

“Wisdek’s imagery of Yorkdale Shopping Centre is another creative implementation of Google’s Street View technology and we’re thrilled to be the first shopping centre in North America to have interior images on Google maps,” said Anthony Casalanguida, General Manager of Yorkdale Shopping Centre.

Want to check it out for yourself? Visit Yorkdale Shopping Centre on Google Maps and pull the Street View icon down over locations in the center. It looks as though only certain areas have been mapped so far, but it’s a great start.
