How TO360 makes decisions about what goes on the maps

TO360 uses a system of tiering to categorize and prioritize what goes on maps. There are four tiers: landmarks, local destinations, secondary destinations, and generic destinations.






Tier 1: Landmarks

Tier 1 e.g..png

Tier 1 landmarks are places that:

  • are memorable as a wayfinding aid

  • have architectural significance/value

  • define the identity of the area

  • have a low turnover rate

On mapping, Tier 1 places are represented with a 2D icon and large, bold text.


Tier 2: Local Destinations

Tier 2 local destinations are places that: 

  • are unique to their area

  • define area's character

  • attract visitors from other parts of the city

  • have a low turnover rate

On mapping, Tier 2 places are represented with a dark-shaded building footprint and large, bold text.


Tier 3: Secondary Destinations

Tier 3 secondary destinations are places that: 

  • have names and serve the local community

  • generally do not generate trips from other parts of the city

  • have a low turnover rate

On mapping, Tier 3 places are represented with a light-shaded building footprint and small text.


Tier 4: Generic Destinations

Tier 4 generic destinations are places that:

  • are unnamed and functional

  • provide a generic facility or amenity

  • service the local community

On mapping, Tier 4 places are represented with a symbol only.
