3.4. Buildings

This section contains information about map items that belong to the “Buildings” category on YME .

Buildings (structures) on YME display as polygons that contain information about their location, shape, height, function (residential, public, etc.) and condition (under construction, abandoned, etc.).

For more information, see sections:

Buildings or more complex compounds of a more complex nature (e.g. some monuments) sometimes make use of preset 3D models stored in dedicated files that are then displayed on Yandex Maps. That makes it possible to display separate buildings or the entire building complex.

For regulations and requirements for three-dimensional models, see Section Requirements for three-dimensional models of buildings.

Some buildings on Yandex Maps (e.g. shopping malls) include indoor maps. To learn more about requirements for indoor maps, see Section 3.18. Indoor maps.

Note. Items that are displayed as 3D models or have indoor maps on Yandex Map Editor can not be edited.

For example, one such 3D model is used to display the compound comprising the Novodevichy Convent in Moscow (on the left is Yandex Map Editor, on the right is Yandex Maps):
