Places and Chain Harmonization Sheet
- The Place Harmonizer script found here should be used for all places.
- Phone Numbers
Places should use the following phone number format: xxx-xxx-xxxx

- Chain Businesses and Missing Chains
- If you don't find the business you're looking on the sheet below, please use the built in functionality of the place harmonizer script to add it. There is a sheet maintained for each region.
- Gas Stations
The Great Lakes region will follow the USA naming standard for gas stations that do not have a named convenience store. For gas stations that also have a convenience store with its own name, we will use a hyphenated name:
gas_station_brand - convenience_store_name.
- Place Lock Standard
Places should be locked to the below standards, only after all data fields have been filled. At a minimum ensure that Category, Name and Address (street and house number), and Brand (for gas stations) have information. Note for gas stations - DO NOT USE THE BRAND "UNBRANDED". If it is a no brand gas station, just leave the brand field blank.
Any place that has at least a correct category, correct name, and correct address with house number should be locked to 3.
