BBVA Compass Stadium Debuts Google Maps for the 2014 Event Season
Mar 27, 2014
BBVA Compass Stadium, an AEG Facilities venue, in collaboration with Google Maps, has launched a new, online interactive indoor mapping feature which will allow patrons easier access to information and directions to the stadium. The mapping feature is accessible on Google Maps for desktop or through the Google Maps app.
Patrons using Google Maps will be able to obtain detailed directions to the stadium including identifying the closest entrance gate to utilize along with directions to the exact location of their seats. Getting the BBVA Compass Stadium on indoor Google Maps is a multi-phase mapping process.
The first phase provides a detailed layout of the stadium interior complete with locations for restrooms, food vendors and ATM outlets. Subsequent phases will allow enhanced directions from the users’ current location directly to seating sections, the nearest restrooms and food vendors from their seat, and provide indoor imagery of the concourse and seating levels.
“The Google Map technology will allow patrons to access key information about the stadium immediately from their handheld devices which will create a better customer experience for all our patrons,” said Nathan Buchanan, Security Manager, BBVA Compass Stadium. “We look forward to rolling out additional phases which will include menu listings for concessions stands as well as enhanced indoor imagery for a more expansive visual layout of the property.”
BBVA Compass Stadium is the first stadium in Houston, as well as the first Major League Soccer stadium, to have indoor floor plans publicly available on Google Maps.
The stadium’s indoor maps on Google Maps launched in February in preparation for fans to access prior to the Houston Dynamo opening day against New England Revolution on Saturday, March 8.
