Maps for Russia
Finding Address OrganizationsYandex.Maps are preferable here. Say on Google often came across obsolete information on organizations and many unsigned homes. OpenStreetMaps - here can be more detailed maps of remote settlements.
PanoramasOn Google Maps MUCH more panoramas around the world and across Russia than anywhere else. But there is a drawback. Western society is characterized by paranoia and, therefore, on Google maps, people's faces and machine numbers are smeared.
At the same time, Google decided to smear and advertising. As a result, we see a continuous mazna.
Let's say, I somehow decided to visit a certain district of a certain city and want to orient myself in the locality. On the panoramas I saw some identical gray brick and block houses (of which we have a lot), all the names of shops and advertising were smeared. There are no landmarks.
I went to Yandex.Maps - normal panoramas - faces, signs. Quickly oriented. In addition, the principle of shooting at Google - the video, which then makes panoramas, Yandex - photos. What was reflected in the quality. I went to the Maidan. Google has a bad glue, Yandex is more careful. Therefore, I recommend where you can - use Yandex. If Yandex does not cover it - we use Google.
World MapsIt's preferable to Google Maps in almost everything.
More detailed small settlements are performed on OpenStreetMaps. Yandex.Maps well cover Russia, the CIS and a number of popular countries for Russians, such as Turkey, Egypt ... The rest of the world is poor.
