== Cll (or CLL) is used all over NM for Calle (Street in Spanish). While Calle was in the first post spreadsheet, someone seemed to suggest "C" represent it. That seems too simple and might lead to confusion.
I posted some of this on other threads I believe---that western US states especially have a lot of Indian reservations.
== Indian Service Route --or-- Indian Service Rte --or-- Indian Svc Rte
It would be nice to have ISR be placed in the TTS. This is relatively common. If there is some other standard, I don't care what it is. I am just worried that Indian reservations are under represented.
== Navajo Service Route --or-- other variant per above
This is less common, but I would imagine that each Indian tribe reservation may have their tribe name on some of these roads. While one could suggest NSR, I would wonder how many other tribes have special names. In New Mexico, it seems most tribes use the Indian Service Rte (or Route) on the map, but we have a large population of Navajos, so they may get special treatment.
== Indian Road
I have no idea if it is worth putting this in the mix, but have seen it a bit as well.
I agree that "C" is too simple of an abbreviation for "Calle".
At the moment however we are hesitating from making any more actual suggestions until we actually learn more about what is already recognized.
Since as you point out "Cll" and CLL" is commonly used for "Calle", I'll be sure to add those to the test list.
I was not entirely clear on your other suggestions however. Can you clarify which abbreviations are currently in use? I'll add them to the test list. I will also add any suggestions that you may not have actually seen on signs, but feel are likely being used. If you could check other mapping services, including state government sites, it may be helpful. I had no luck with a Google search nor in Wikipedia.
Later we can start making suggestions for abbreviation changes. That also probably also need an entire new forum thread to handle.
