Minimum landmark size
When creating a landmark, it is important to understand the client application will not display the landmark unless it is greater than 50 m (160 feet) when measuring the maximum size of the X or Y dimension.
If one dimension is over 50 m (160 feet), there is no requirement for the other dimension. Also the area of the landmark has no impact on whether it will display on the client app.
Gas Station landmarks should be mapped to the property line. Please ensure that the Brand field is correctly set, and that the landmark name also contains the brand. The landmark name may include other information, if it is present on the sign (i.e. if it's a 7-Eleven with a Chevron station, set the brand to "Chevron" and the name to "7-Eleven Chevron")
