3.6.2.1.2. Yandex Business business

The Yandex Business business attribute connects the organization on the map to its listing in Yandex Business.

As you're filling out the field, the organization list appears. The list shows all the organizations up to 400 meters from the created point that have the same type and a Yandex Business entry:

If the organization you're looking for is not on the list, enter its name in the Name field (see below for more information).

3.6.2.1.3. Business category

The Category attribute lets you provide a more detailed description of an organization's line of business. This connects the organization's line of business with the category in Yandex Business.

To enter a category, click Category and select a value from the drop-down list.

You must indicate the organization's category.

If the organization's line of business fits into several categories, select the one that matches their main business activity. For instance, if a clothing store also sells some shoes, select the “clothing store” category.

If you can't determine what an organization's main line of business is, try getting as close as possible and entering one of two suitable categories.

For more information about categories, see the Appendix Location and organization classification.

3.6.2.1.4. Name

3.6.2.1.4.1 Rules for choosing names

Items are named in accordance with the general rules (see 3.1.3. Map item naming rules).

Attention. If the organization's place card specifies that changes to the information about it are made at the owner's discretion, its name does not have to comply with the item naming rules on Yandex Map Editor:

When naming organizations, preference is given to brand names (as well as names on signage or those that refer to the organization's specialization (for example, Construction materials).

Only use the organization's registered name if you can not locate the name sources listed above.

Note.

Also see 3.6.1.5 — drawing and naming items under construction.

Follow these rules when naming organizations:
  1. If you know the organization's registered name and brand name, then enter the brand name as the official name and enter the registered name in the “also known as, historical” field.

    For example: official name — Magnit, caption name — Magnit, “also known as, historical”Tander, AO.

  2. If you only know the registered name and there is no brand name or name on the organization's signage, then enter the registered name as the official name and indicate the type of legal entity. For the caption, enter the registered name without indicating the type of legal entity.

    For example: official name Teplo, LLC, name for caption Teplo.

  3. If the organization only has the registration name (in particular, the full name of the organization owner or employee) and specialization, then enter the specialization as the official name and the registered name for the “also known as, historical” field.
    Note. If the person's full name is part of the brand name, include this full name as part of the official name.

    For example:

    Official name Synonymous name

    (also known as, historical)

    Building supplies Builders, Inc.
    Hardware store Ivanov A. A.
    Lena's Beauty Salon not attributed
  4. If the organization doesn't have a proper name and is only identified by its type of activity (it has a narrow specialization or can't be clearly categorized), then enter its type (specialization) as its official name. For example: Shoe repair, Locksmith, Zipper repair, Baggage pay desk.

    If an organization has several specializations that can't all fit into the official name field (for example, if the list includes three or more types of services), then use a general term to describe them all. For example: Repair shop.

    If the organization's signage highlights one particular service, then enter that service as the official name. For example:

  5. You can only write the name of the item in capital letters if it's written the same way in the trademark.

    You can't use special characters and emoji in names even if they are used in the trademark.

    For example: Mebel Chernozemya, FINN FLARE, FARFOR, SushiVesla.

    If an organization uses capital letters in the middle of its name, you can write it that way on the map provided the name doesn't have two or more capital letters in a row.

    For example: KulinAriya, StroiMashServis, Krasnoe&Beloe.

  6. The spelling of words in organizations' names should conform with norms of the language you are using.

    For example, in English the names of organizations are written with the first letter of every word uppercase.

    This contrasts with Russian names, which are written with only the first word capitalized.

    For example: Burger King, Shaggy Dog, Central Mall.

  7. You can write a company's name in lowercase on the map if it's part of the brand.

    For example: oodji, iPhone.

  8. Restrooms should have the Toilet caption. Don't specify women's, men's, or any other type.
  9. Places of interest, such as architectural monuments and engineering structures, don't use any additional terms to reflect their current status, including “house”, “building”, “former”.

    For example:

    Correct Incorrect
    The Women's Hospital of the Holy Trinity Community of Sisters of Mercy The Women's hospital building of the Holy Trinity Community of Sisters of Mercy
    The Alexander Hospital The Former Alexander Hospital

    As an exception, you can use additional terms when they are directly connected with the proper name of the place and serve for word agreement. For example, Rukavishnikov House and Pushnikov Chambers.

3.6.2.1.4.2. Name formatting

Rules and examples of entering names:

  • Official name — required for all items (except for items belonging to the “Yard and park infrastructure” type). Here is what should be specified:
    • — Only the item's proper name can determine the category of an item or a place (as long the name doesn't include the category and the category doesn't make specific elaborations, such as “indian cuisine restaurant”).

      For such cases, it's preferred you enter the “Also known as, historical” name variation, which is defined in the [the item's type + proper name] format.

      See examples 1, 4, and 12.

    • Only the item's proper name if the item has a number or ID in addition to its proper name (applies to items of the following types: Food, Auto, Trade, Finance, Yard and park infrastructure, Sports, as well as the Drug store and Optician subtypes). In this case, you can specify the item's name, number, and type as a name of the “Also known as, historical” type.

      See example 2.

    • The item's proper name and item type in cases when the item's proper name grammatically overlaps with the item type.

      See example 3.

    • The item's proper name, number (or ID), and item type if the item has a number or ID in addition to its proper name (applies to items of the following types: Education and research, Government, Religion, Culture and recreation, Businesses and services, Healthcare, but doesn't include the Drug store and Optician subtypes).

      See examples 25 and 26.

    • If an item doesn't have a proper name, only the “item type” is specified (except for items belonging to the Yard and park infrastructure type).

      See examples in Item and organization names (standard names of map items that have no proper names, depending on the category).

    • If an object belongs to the “Yard and park infrastructure” type and doesn't have a name, only specify its official name if it elaborates on the item's function. For example, Volleyball court, Basketball court. Don't set an official name for such an item if it doesn't elaborate on its function. For example, the official name can't be Sports ground, Playground, Dumpsters.
    • If some of the data pertaining to a “Finance” organization's item type (such as department, branch, numbered or unnumbered operational cash registers, etc.) doesn't fit its category, it can be clarified in the organization's official name. The item's proper name always comes before its official name. The clarifications are written last, separated by a comma.

      See examples 7, 8, 9.

    • If a bank has both a full name and an abbreviation/portmanteau, the official name uses the full version, while the caption uses the shortened version.

      See examples 10 and 11.

    • If the business name consists of the name of its business activity and the full name of its owner/specialist, then the name should be written as follows (excluding brand names):

      • Official name: the type of business activity specified based on the table of standard names for places and businesses, and the full name (the first name and the patronymic should be written as initials)
      • Signature name: business activity specified based on the table for standard names of places and businesses.

      See examples 31 and 32.

    • Attractions of architectural value can display their year(s) of construction. If a century is specified in the attraction's name, it can be substituted with the years of construction.

      Any additional information specified for items with proper names should come after a comma. Years and centuries use arabic numbers. If there are more than two construction dates, please only specify the two oldest ones.

      See examples 28 and 29.

  • For caption on map — must be specified if it's different from the official name. If the names are the same, specifying it is not mandatory, but still preferrable.

    The name should contain:

    • Only the item's proper name in cases when the item's proper name doesn't grammatically overlap with the item type.

      See examples 1, 2, 7, 8, 9.

    • Only the item's proper name if the item has a number or ID in addition to its proper name (applies to items of the following types: Food, Auto, Trade, Finance, Yard and park infrastructure, Sports, as well as the Drug store and Optician subtypes).

      See example 2.

    • The item's proper name and item type in cases when the item's proper name grammatically overlaps with the item type.

      See example 3.

    • The item's proper name, number (or ID), and item type if the item has a number or ID in addition to its proper name (applies to items of the following types: Education and research, Government, Religion, Culture and recreation, Businesses and services, Healthcare, but doesn't include the Drug store and Optician subtypes).

      See examples 25 and 26.

    • Type and number (ID) if the item only has a type and ID.

      See example 27.

    • — Only the item type for cases when the item doesn't have a proper name and the item type doesn't match the category. It doesn't need the For caption on map name if the item type matches the category.

      See examples 5 and 6.

    • If a bank has both a full name and an abbreviation/portmanteau, the caption uses the shortened version.

      See examples 10 and 11.

    • If a government, educational, cultural, or medical facility does not have its own name or number, the caption should specify the locality (urban or rural) it belongs to.

      See examples 13, 14, 15.

    • If in one territory an organization that is divided into several subsidiaries (for example, a University and its buildings/departments/dorms, a factory and its departments/buildings, a hospital and its departments/buildings, and so on), the names of the subsidiaries are written as:

      • official: name of the parent organization, name of the child organization;

      • for signature: the name of the child organization.

      See examples 16, 17, 18.

      If the subsidiary is located on different territories, the name of the parent organization is saved in the name for the signature.

      See example 19.

    • If a large parent company has independent branches with their own names (e.g. city-level universities that are branches of a federal university, or local hospitals subordinate to a regional hospital), then the names of those branches should be specified in the following manner:

      • Official name: name of the parent organization, name of the subordinate organization
      • For caption on map: name of the subordinate organization.

      See example 20.

    • If several organizations share the same name, territory, and subcategory (e.g. Factories and industrial enterprises), please include their abbreviated item type in the official name.

      See examples 21, 22, 23, 24.

    • If the years/centuries of construction are specified in the proper name for an attraction of architectural value, the attraction's caption name should be written as follows:
      • If the item has a proper name, then it should be the same as a caption name.
      • If the item doesn't have a proper name, then the caption name should be shortened and include the item's construction period taken from the proper name.
      See examples 28 and 29.
