How should names be represented in the attribute table?
The primary name of a POI should be given as NAME. Alternate names are very important in making it possible to find places. The NAME field is the one that will appear visibly in our maps, but if people search for the alternate names, we can point them to the right location.
Hence for POIs and so on, names can be represented as follows:
|NAME||Most well-known Name||Alcatraz|
|ALT_NM_1||Alternate Name 1 (second most well known)||Alcatraz Island|
|ALT_NM_2||Alternate Name 2 (Third most well known)||Golden Gate Recreation Park (Alcatraz)|
