Introduction

City Labelling in New Zealand has been evolving. This document has been created to try and set some standards.

City and County Naming

The City field should be used to specify the city, town or village for all the streets within it.

city name on all primary and above roads - main 'city/suburb' field

suburb name on all primary and above roads - alt 'city/suburb' field

suburb name on all regular roads - main 'city/suburb' field

no city/suburb name on rural roads



Rural roads that are in-between towns should be be left with No city.

Where possible, the simplest unique name should be used.

The editor will display the error message "The highlighted road is too far from the city it was added to" when attempting to add a duplicate name. This is to prevent smudges and means that a different name will need to be chosen for that town or village.

City Suburbs

For very large cities with suburbs, then the suburb should become the name of the town with the city name as the suffix. This is particularly important for generating useful the traffic reports, especially when there are long arterial or ring roads that go through several parts of the city.

Examples
1. "Colton (Leeds)"
2. "Old Trafford (Manchester)"
3. "Kingswood (Bristol)"
