article imageGoogle helps wayfinding around the World Cup

By Ryan Hite     Jun 5, 2014 in Sports
With the World Cup about to kick off in Brazil, Google introduced a new mapping feature that allows the visitor to view the layouts of the stadiums ahead of the logistical challenge.
There's just a week left until the World Cup kicks off in Brazil. If you're planning on attending and need help finding your way, Google Maps came up with a solution to help you.
Starting Wednesday, one can explore the insides of all 12 stadiums hosting the World Cup as well as surrounding areas through Google Street View.
Stadiums such as Rua Professor Eurico Rabelo in Rio de Janeiro can easily be found on Google Maps, but the interior remained closed off to Street View's virtual lens until now.
Getting a visual head start on the stadiums and their layouts could be vital. The arenas hosting the matches will be spread out across Belo Horizonte, Curitiba, Natal, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Porto Alegre, Brasilia, Fortaleza, Cuiaba, Manaus, Recife and Sao Paulo.
Only six of the 12 stadiums will have Wi-Fi by the start of the event, according to the Washington Post. If one doesn't have a mobile data plan to access the web, one may want to start exploring and taking notes before the events begin.
