How to determine the location


  • - the address of the organization or residential building of interest;
  • - address and reference program (system "Double GIS", etc. - optional);
  • - computer;
  • - access to the Internet;
  • - a map or atlas of the city with an alphabetical index of streets.


Step 1

To search for the desired street in a service like Yandex.Maps or Google Maps, you need to go to its start page, select the city of interest and enter its name in the search bar.

It can also be effective to enter the name of the organization into the Yandex.Maps search box, but not always.

By changing the scale and distance determinant, you can find out the area of ​​the city where the object of interest is located, the nearest metro station, the distance from certain landmarks.

In "Yandex Maps" it is also possible to find out the location of the house under the desired number, but this option may not always be useful, since the system does not reflect all available numbers.

Step 2

The technology for working with address and reference programs is generally similar, but they are based not on the global network, but on the user's computer and are periodically updated via the Internet.

Usually they include search by address and by name, but the database of both houses and organizations may be incomplete.

Step 3

If you are looking for the location of the desired object the old-fashioned way, using a map or atlas, use the alphabetical index. Opposite each street is the square in which it is located, usually named by a letter and a number.

You are required to find on the map the intersection of the rows of squares corresponding to the desired letter and number, and study the one that is in this place.

Maps and atlases can also contain useful information such as house numbering and public transport routes. However, not all houses and even streets may be reflected in them.
