Quite a while ago (years) Shell sold their New Zealand service stations to a company called Greenstone Energy.
Greenstone Energy had a licence to continue to use the Shell brand for a while.
Over the last year or so, the service stations have been rebranded to Z service stations.
The general pattern is that a site is known as either " Z <suburb>" or "Z <road name>" and was based on the previous "Shell <suburb>" or "Shell <road name>"
What is the correct treatment of this rebranding in Mapmaker? Some of the sites use the same listing and have the Z name as primary and the Shell name as obscure, while other sites have the Shell listing marked as closed and a new Z listing created, and others still have the Shell listing only.
According to the Kodak discussion
, it appears that the correct method is the mark the Shell listing as closed and then duplicate all of the information over to a Z listing with the only difference being the new name?
And even though the Shell name is a historic name, it appears that it should not be added as an obscure name because otherwise it will be listed as a duplicate?
Is there a tool that can be used to duplicate the listing information? It seems that often a new listing is created with the new branding but a lot less information.
Is there anything that needs to be done to the original listing so that when someone ends up there and sees the "this place is closed" message, they know that there is still a business on that site providing the same services, ie something that tells them that there is still a service station there rather than an electronic store?
