Combination naming

When naming Point Places which are contained within an Area Place in this way, it may be desirable to include the Area's name in the separate Point Place names. If this is desirable, name the Point Places with the specific name first, followed by a hyphen, followed by the Area name, as such: Point Specific Name - Area General Name

While this naming standard can be used to clarify a location it should be used sparingly as to align with standard place harmonization efforts.

Common scenarios where combination naming can be applied:

  • Location is inside of an airport or behind a private entrance. "Starbuck - Dulles International Airport (IAD)"
  • Destination is less accessible than similar locations in the area. i.e. fast food restaurant in a mall or on a college campus. "Arby's - Lakeside Square" or "Chick-fil-a - George Mason University Student Center"
  • Locations that are not full service i.e. "Starbucks - Target"
  • Area location adds specific context to a point place's name i.e. "Yulman Stadium - Tulane University"
