Places (fka Landmarks)

As of March 2014, national guideance was created for Places that all editors should now follow.

Since changes are still in progress with these guidelines, editors should be conservative about adding Places until these guidelines are solidified. Adding Places for every small business that exists will create map clutter.

Eventually a layering system may become available that will allow every Place possible to be added without cluttering the map. Please consider this before adding Places to the map.

For more information regarding this ongoing process, please see the forum link at the top of the Places page.
