The YandexMaps extension allows you to create easily Yandex maps with a marked balloon. The descriptions of the placemarked maps are all parser functions enabling geocoding. Yandex maps are allowed to be used for public sites.


Map Example[edit]


Only fourth attribute is optional:

  • location
  • width
  • height
  • map options:
    • c - enable zoom on mouse double click
    • d - enable mouse map dragging
    • r - enable map ruler
    • z - enable mouse wheel scroll zoom
    • h - enable hot keys (API 1.1)
    • m - enable mouse left button map magnification
    • b - enable mouse right button map magnification
    • M - switch to map mode
    • H - switch to hybrid map mode
    • S - switch to satellite mode
    • U - switch to public map mode (API 2.0)
    • I - switch to public hybrid map mode (API 2.0)
    • P - show placemark
    • B - show balloon


  1. Create a directory called YandexMaps in your extensions directory
  2. Download files from the following archive into your YandexMaps directory


You should add your Yandex Maps API key and server as parameters within LocalSettings.php just prior to the require_once

$wgYandexMapAPIVer = 2.0;
$wgYandexMapServer = 'http://api-maps.yandex.ru/2.0/?load=package.standard&coordorder=longlat&lang=ru-RU';
$wgYandexMapMaxZoom = 23;


$wgYandexMapServer = 'http://api-maps.yandex.ru/1.1/index.xml?';
$wgYandexMapAPIKey = 'key=YOUR1OWN2YANDEX3MAP4API5KEY==';

While you don't provide an API 1.1 key, extension could not be run.
