Yandex answered the question about the disappearance of state borders on maps
Yandex responded to a question about the disappearance of state borders on maps. The company said that now the focus will be on natural objects. It is reported by TASS.
According to company representatives, Yandex.Maps is a service for finding organizations and building car routes. “These are the main scenarios for our users,” Yandex explained.
“In the near future, on survey scales where the service is not used in its main scenarios, the map will become physical-geographical. The emphasis on it will be placed on natural objects, and not on the borders of states, ”the Yandex message says.
The company also noted that the update will affect both the web version and the mobile application of the Yandex.Maps service. “Our task is to display the world around. Therefore, mountains, rivers, lines of the polar circles and other data specific to this type of map will appear on the map. Changes will appear gradually,” the press service explained.
Earlier on June 9, users of the service noticed that state borders disappeared in Yandex.Maps, but the names of countries remained.
