The purpose of this key is to help quickly identify individual shops, banks, restaurants etc. in search lists.

Rationale

When querying for nearby shops, restaurants, fuel stations, etc in navigators such as Osmand, various branches of say the restaurant chain McDonalds often all show up in the resulting list under the same name, distinguished only by distance. If you are travelling in a specific direction and would prefer to visit a branch close to your general route this can be rather unhelpful.

Usage

To be used with amenity=bank, shop=*, amenity=restaurant or amenity=fuel or similar, which are part of a Wikipedia-16px.png chain.

For smaller towns with only one branch, give the name of the town. For cities with multiple branches, give the name of a neighborhood, street or intersection. Note that this is often both less complex than and different from the address.

name=* should then hold only what can be physically observed on signs at the individual branch.

Examples

  • name=Waitrose; shop=supermarket; branch="Canary Wharf"
