All notable areas go through a series of tasks on the cloud in order to optimize …
- routing efficiency
- total map coverage
- mapper safety
- content index prioritization
- content comprehensiveness
Some checklists are required before the map team is deployed.
- Use refined search terms to streamline the research process. If you’re looking for rooftop venues, use the terms top, rooftop, and bar, then the city you’re looking for.
- Example - "Rooftop bars New Orleans"
- Avoid using the term venue unless you are specifically looking for performance venues. Live lingo does not always translate well.
- Make sure you’re using a credible source. The particular sources vary city by city, but a good way to tell legitimacy is if multiple sources are saying the same thing, you can assume they are on point.
- List the venues on Airtable with at least 5 columns (Name, Address/Neighborhood, Plotted Yes/No, Venue ID, and Notes)
- Use Symphony to see whether or not we already have the listed venues (if this is for a reverification round).
- Key tip: use fuzzier search terms so you have a wider selection to look at. Sometimes our venue names don’t match up precisely e.g. Dream Midtown was named Dream Hotel in our system, needed to be changed, but I used the search term Name: In: Dream and Tags: In: Hotels + Places To Stay to find it.
- If we do not already have the venue, place an unverified pin via the street app. Before adding a pin, double check to make sure we do not already have the venue.
