Scaling map objects

The Static API allows you to change the size of objects on the map: increase the font size on labels and display larger geographical objects (buildings, roads, bus stops, metro stations, and so on). For example, this might be useful when displaying maps on screens with higher resolution. All the map objects are enlarged proportionally while retaining high image quality.

Use the scale parameter for enlarging objects. It determines the coefficient for enlarging all objects on the map and takes fractional values from 1.0 to 4.0.


When the scale parameter is set, placemarks added to the map are also enlarged.

The example below shows a request for a map image with the scale parameter set to 1.5.,41.01,org&scale=1.5&size=450,450&apikey=YOUR_API_KEY
