1. What is Yandex Map Editor

YME is a service that allows users to mark up maps and add additional levels of detail to them.

When you become a Yandex Map Editor author, you can create and edit various types of map items: roads, streets, villages, houses, organizations, gardens, rivers, wells, etc. After the new map item passes moderation, it is added to Yandex.Maps .

That way others can search for that map item and use it to plot better routes. The map will become more rich in information as users continue to contribute to the project.


Yandex monitors the quality of the data on its maps, which is why the moderation process takes some time (on average, two weeks).

In order for your edits to end up on Yandex.Maps, you must follow the Mapping rules.

You can have a discussion about the Map editor in the Yandex Map Editor Club or in an item's comment section if your issue pertains to that particular item.
