Lucas Oil Stadium Gets 360 Degree Interactive Image for Google Maps
In the first time in NFL history, Google Maps put up a 360 degree rendered image an NFL stadium, and it was of Lucas Oil Stadium, where the Indianapolis Colts play. This was done likely due to the fact that Lucas Oil Stadium has been considered the number-one stadium experience of any sport for the past two seasons by Stadium Journey Magazine.
Colts Chief Operating Officer Pete Ward said“The Colts organization is honored to have Lucas Oil Stadium selected by Google Maps to be the first sports venue featured in a 360-degree interactive photo tour, this imagery gives us the opportunity to share our home, an award winning state-of-the-art facility, with Colts fans around the world.”
Despite Lucas Oil Stadium only opening in 2008, it has already hosted the Super Bowl 46, the NFL Combine every year, the NCAA Men’s Basketball championships in 2010 (and will again in 2015). In addition, everyone from the announcers that cover the NFL, to people that come to the stadium for it’s conventions and trade shows, rave about how state-of-the-art the facilities are in Indianapolis.
Lucas Oil Stadium’s panoramic imagery will be accessible to more than one billion monthly active users of Google Maps services. One can only hope that Google continues to scan in and take images of pro sports stadiums around the world to give fans unique images of their favorite team’s home stadium. To access the images of Lucas Oil Stadium, simply type “Lucas Oil Stadium” or “Colts Stadium” into Google Search or Google Maps.
