If you’ve ever been lost inside a gargantuan shopping mall, department store or airport, Google says it wants to help you find your way.

The Internet company is now offering a version of its Google Maps software that provides indoor maps of such major buildings nationwide.

The indoor mapping feature is available only for mobile devices running Google’s Android operating system version 2.2 or above. The indoor mapping feature is available in Google Maps version 6.0 and above.

Locally Sea-Tac Airport is among the buildings whose floor plans are available on those devices. Macy’s, Ikea and Home Depot stores are also among the places whose floor plans are available on the mobile devices.
