My maps (map builder)

You can make a map of your places (for example, your route home, or to your office or vacation destination).

You can draw on the map using the following tools:

  • placemarks — entryways, meet-up points, etc.

  • lines — streets, routes, borders, etc.

  • polygons (including those with internal outlines) — homes, suburban areas, lakes, etc.

This type of map can serve multiple purposes:

  • Save and post it to your site or blog as an interactive map or image

  • Print it.

  • Send it to friends as a link or drawing.

You can also save your map places to a file, which can be used for the following:

  • To import map points to navigation programs

  • To use with the Yandex.Maps API

  • To view and save data in other programs (such as Google Earth)

To create or edit your own map, click or your username. In the menu that opens, select My maps.
