Place Names

Some Place Names are Known by Many Names

The Place data mapping feature digitally represents specific locations or geographic areas of interest by its official name. Often in smaller and rural communities that have merged, these new names or places do not show up on maps. This can be a serious problem to organizations such as emergency‐service organizations and shipping companies. Go360 understands how to manage this challenge.

Places Exist in Many Different Forms

Place names are given to every province / state, region, district, and municipality in the country. However, there are many more names within a province or state such as:

  • upper and lower tier municipal names

  • business improvement area (BIA) names
