A ger or yurt is a portable, round tent used as a temporary or permanent dwelling.

Traditional yurts and gers are covered with skins or felt and used as a dwelling by nomadic groups in Central Asia.

Modern yurts may be permanently built on a wooden platform; they may use modern materials such as steam-bent wooden framing or metal framing, canvas or tarpaulin, plexiglas, wire rope, and radiant insulation.

In OpenStreetMap only permanently or seasonally stationary tents, yurts and gers should be mapped.

How to map
