It's currently in the works still, but the majority will be done at the national and regional level. We will still have the responsibility of standardizing local chain businesses. Any notable that comes to mind?

Those are considered national chains and a standard has been set for them already by a group of people working on "Place Name Harmonization." When RI has its mapraid (in the near future), we will be able to apply those standards here. :)

The NE region list is available, if you want to start. You don't need to wait for a MapRaid to start it. :D 8-)


For various reasons, I would advise "not yet." But indeed, there are some names that have been mostly standardized... Though for some businesses, the details might be subject to change (e.g., do we include "DD" as an alt for Dunkin' Donuts? What is the primary category? Coffee shop or fast food?)
