YMapsML is a language for describing geographical objects.

In YMapsML, each geographical object is associated with a geometric shape and a geo object that is used for displaying this shape on the map. The shape definitions and their anchors to geographical coordinates are set in corresponding YMapsML elements. The gml:Point element is designated for the "point" shape. The Placemark geo object is used for displaying a point on the map.

The appearance of the displayed objects is set in the repr:Representation.

The geoXml.load function is used for loading YMapsML data. After data loads, the function converts it to GeoObjectCollection a collection of geo objects , then passes it to the handler function as a parameter. A GeoObjectCollection can be displayed on the map.
