There are three ways to start using the API:
For creating basic maps with your own placemarks and driving directions, use the Map Constructor, where you can create simple maps in a visual mode.
Yes, you can. To save and edit the map, you must log in or register on Yandex when creating it. Keep in mind that you will not be able to transfer the map to a different user account later.
The list of supported browsers is published in the documentation. This list is updated on a regular basis.
You can find a list of cities that have detailed maps and photos on Yandex.Maps at https://maps.yandex.com/?index.
You do not need a key to work with the free API versions 1.x, 2.0, or 2.1. If you get the "Invalid key" error when using a free version of the API, just remove the key from the connection link and continue using the API.
For HTTP Geocoder users and sites that don't pass the HTTP Referer header, the world search is accessible only using a key. Get a key and use it for accessing the API if you need the search feature outside of the following countries: Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Moldova, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Turkey.
