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.
