JavaScript API

The JS API allows you to embed a map in a website or application with WebView, with the ability to search for business or toponyms, build routes, and view panoramas. You can use the JavaScript API in projects for location-based analytics and data visualization.

The JavaScript API is a library for working with maps in browsers and in applications with WebView.


Access to Yandex map data and technologies

The JavaScript API allows you to embed a map in a website or app so that users can search for businesses or places, build routes, view panoramas, and use the other features available on Yandex.Maps. Yandex map data is constantly updated, so the maps you create via the API always reflect the latest changes.

Flexible map configuration

You can use the JavaScript API to configure how users interact with the map and define what the map will look like. To set a style for objects on the map, you can choose from standard elements or create a custom layout.

The map will have the same functionality on different types of devices, in part due to the events handling model.

Data visualization and analytics

The JavaScript API can help you visualize a large volume of information or make decisions based on geo analytics.

ℹ️ The JavaScript API supports backward compatibility, so any code you have written will continue to work in later versions. The functionality of the JavaScript API can be extended with plugins created by other developers.

All the features of the JavaScript API are covered in detail in the documentation. You will also find examples to help you understand the code. Tech support is available to answer any questions you may have about the Yandex.Maps API.
