Urban nomenclature is key to the proper functioning, order and planning for the city. It makes the location of properties and roads easier, through a model of structuring axes.
Nomenclature is designed for:
Spatial orientation of citizens
It must obey the following characteristics:
Universality, unity and no repetition.
Flexibility and the capacity to be expanded.
Clear and self-contained
Road nomenclature is an ensemble of alphanumeric characters used to identify a road. It’s composed of the main road nomenclature, and, for some roads decided by the City Council, its common name.
Main road: the road where the property has its main access.
Secondary road: axis of less numeric denomination that intersects with the main road.
Housing nomenclature is an alphanumeric unique identifier, assigned properties and classified in the following categories:
Main (main access to the property), Secondary (secondary access still located in the main road), Included (access in other roads different from the main). It’s composed of the Main road- Secondary Road. The number represents the approximated distance between the reference axis and the property’s access point. When required, a third component may be added to denote the interior of the property: lot, building, apartment, etc.
