Business Categories in Apple Maps for iOS7

Business Categories in Apple Maps for iOS7

|

Now that Apple Maps allows you to suggest categories for business listings, I thought it might be useful to list them here. There are 689 listed categories, but there are several duplicates and for some reason, a number of foreign-language categories like Amtsgericht.  Why does it matter what these categories are?  If in fact, these are the complete set of Apple Maps’ business categories (I hope not as there are lots of missing categories), then when you are categorizing your business in one Apple Maps’ data suppliers’ databases, you might want to use the exact category name that Apple uses.  Often these databases use categories that have a lot of overlap, but if you want to have the best possible chance of your business data mapping from a data provider to Apple Maps, it might be worthwhile to use the closest match to Apple’s categories.

And now, Apple Maps Marketing proudly presents…your Apple Maps Business Categories 2013!  Also available in a handy spreadsheet: Apple Maps Business Categories.xlsx.

    Typical Blogger. Gives us step B without Step A. Where do you go to suggest a business category? What good does the list do?
