Yandex Offers Map Capabilities To 4 More Continents

Yandex, the biggest search engine in Russia, has enhanced its mapping capabilities by buying a license for digital maps from NAVTEQ, the top location provider service. In one more move expanding their globally search services, Yandex has obtained a license for highly detailed maps of Europe, North America, Australia, and developed countries in Asia to expand their Yandex.Maps product.

The maps are licensed showing intercity motorways and highways, urban traffic networks, streets, and buildings. Previously, Yandex provided little mapping services outside of Russia and Ukraine. Last year, using a prior license from NAVTEQ, Yandex provided map information for the country of Turkey. Due to its popularity, Yandex has recently expanded their reach considerably.
