When we select a map, we get to an interactive map, like Google or Yandex.
However, why like Google or Yandex? - There are both Google and Yandex. Also there is a map of Bing, Wiki and OpenStreetMaps and a photo from the Google Maps satellite. That is, you can look at the old map, and then jump over to Yandex and immediately see how the map looks today.
