3.13.1. Attribution rules for high-speed transport objects

Rapid transit map items include metros and light metros, rapid trams, rapid buses, urban cable cars and monorails, urban funiculars, and other systems that transport passengers and do not run along city streets. Rapid transit items includes sections of rapid transit lines, lines in their entirety, stations, and exits from stations.

One of the types of rapid transit is light rail transit (LTR), which includes fast trams and “light metro” (when it's constructed similarly to a fast tram). Special drawing rules and attributes apply to LRT systems (see below).

3.13.2.1 Rules for adding attributes to rapid transit line sections

The attribute panel for sections of a rapid transport line looks like this:

When you add attributes to sections of a rapid transport line, follow the rules that apply specifically to their attributes.

3.13.2.1.1. Be a part

The “Part of” attribute indicates which specific rapid transit line a section belongs to.

If the rapid transit line was drawn earlier, then you can choose its name from the list. If the line was not drawn in earlier, then you must fill in the field manually (which creates a new rapid transit line):

After you save the item, the name of the line displays in the panel as a link that opens the entire line editing panel. Editing techniques for these composite linear items are described in section 2.6.2. Composite linear items.

3.13.2.1.2. Level A and Level B

Do not edit the Level A and Level B attributes for high-speed transport lines.

3.13.2.1. Attribution rules for high-speed transport stations

The attribute panel for stations of a rapid transport line looks like this:

When you add attributes to rapid transport line stations, follow the rules that apply specifically to their attributes:

3.13.2.2.1 Rapid transit line

The “Rapid transit line” attribute indicates which specific rapid transit line a station belongs to.

The transit line or system an LRT station belongs to must be indicated.

If the rapid transit line was drawn earlier, then you can choose its name from the list. If the line was not drawn in earlier, then you must fill in the field manually (which creates a new rapid transit line):

3.13.2.2.2. Name

The high-speed station name is assigned in accordance with the general rules. See 3.1.3. Map item naming rules. Additionally:

  • The For caption on map name must always be entered without its item type regardless of the name's grammatical structure. For example:

    • official name: Tyoply Stan station, Bibliotyeka Imyeni Lenina station, Geroyev Dnepra station, Akadyemika Pavlova station, Mashinostroityelyey station.

    • for caption on map: Tyoply Stan, Bibliotyeka Imyeni Lenina, Geroyev Dnepra, Akadyemika Pavlova, Mashinostroityelyey.

  • You can include the item's type in its unofficial name (e.g. historical name). For example, Izmailovsky park, and Izmailovsky Park station are both acceptable.

  • Forlight-rail transport stations and their exits, you must specify the following:

    • Official name in format [type + proper name]

      Например: Solnechnaya rapid tram station.

    • The for caption on map name in format [proper name].

      For example: Solar.

For example:

3.13.2.3. Rules for attributing outputs of high-speed transport stations

The attribute panel for exits from a rapid transport station looks like this:

When you add attributes to rapid transport station exits, follow the rules that apply specifically to their attributes:

3.13.2.3.1. High-speed transport station

The “Rapid transit station” attribute indicates which specific rapid transit line station an exit belongs to.

If the high-speed transport station is already drawn on the map, then when filling in the field it is recommended that you choose a name from the list. If there is no station on the map yet, you should first create it (see Section3.13.1.2. Rules of drawing high-speed transport stations), and then the corresponding exits for the stations.

You must enter the parent station for all station exits in light-rail transport systems.

3.13.2.3.2 Name

High-speed transport station exits should only be captioned if they have a proper name, number or any other label already. Otherwise, do not caption them.

Such proper names, numbers, and labels should belong to the “Official” name type.

The “For caption on map” name is only used when an exit has its own official name that should be shortened according to rules. Only this abbreviated name should be used as the caption.

Some examples of official names:

  • Numbered exit ─ 1

  • Exit with proper name — GMK Bulvarı, Ziya Gökalp Caddesi (some metro exits in Ankara have their own proper names)

  • Labeled exit ─ D1.

Attention.

1) Keep in mind that captioning nearby streets, address points, and landmarks does not substitute a proper name for an exit (ex: exit to Andropova Avenue, exit to Orbita cinema theater, exit to Kolomenskoye Museum-Reserve, etc.).

2) Do not add the following to an exit's name, number, or label:

  • — Name of the station an exit belongs to

  • — The words “entrance” and “exit”

  • — Any notes about an exit's current condition (e.g. closed off, undergoing maintenance)

  • — Any info about an exit's structural features (e.g. Elevator)
