Cyrene codes

We are pleased to introduce you to our new hotel mapping methodology.

Fastpayhotels will now be using Google´s latest technology to provide unique and universal property codes to facilitate mapping between accommodation suppliers and their clients.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Combining different elements of data, we have created a unique code that actually means something instead of having thousands of random or IDs in a list that are hard to interpret.

Until now, mapping different properties between accommodation systems was a tough exercise, sometimes involving complex algorithm to match codes with destinations, addresses (where one exists) and usually generating many of exceptions to be checked manually.

Thanks to Google Plus Codes, we can now identify any point of earth with a unique and precise code. The Google Plus Code algorithm transforms any geo coordinates into an easy identifiable code.

Fastpayhotels now combines Plus Codes with a mix of classic data, to automate mapping in an accurate way. The new demand for different type of accomodation and the recent additional challenge of having to divide the same physical buildings into sub-areas, Cyrene Codes developed enable us to map all type of properties within seconds to any other code system in the world.

 

More than that, Cyrene Codes are a shared code that the whole hotel distribution community can use to replicate freely and accurately for all properties. We hope this creates a common format for all integrators and customers.

HOW IS IT STRUCTURED?

 

Type of property code: allowing all type of properties to be easily recognised for our customers to chose what they want to integrate.

H for hotels, F for flats, A for apartments.

 

ISO country code: universal identification of countries to allow customers to easily identified world zones if necessary.

Google Plus code: unique hotel code for property identification anywhere in the world. It is always separated from the rest of the code with a "-" to isolate if needed.

Elevation code: physical identification of property on a commercial basis. On what floor is this property located? Allowing 3D mapping which is especially useful for vacation apartments within same building.

WHAT OTHER CHALLENGES CAN BE SOLVED USING CYRENE CODES?

 

Avoid human error

There is no human in geo-coding, the Google Plus Codes algorithm works in any point on earth. You cannot have code confusion.

No training needed

Anyone can map properties freely using the same universal property Cyrene Codes. Checking a Cyrene Codes is as simple as entering an address in Google maps.

Avoid duplicates

Duplicate coding of properties is immediately identified.

Anyone can use it

The more it´s used, the more efficient it becomes.

No mapping restrictions

You can map everything, everywhere

It is free and accurate

There is no subscription service and its based using tried and tested technology. Cyrene Codes use geo-location coordinates and not postal addresses for mapping.

It is a simple code

Unlike standard Long/Lat codes, the plus codes are short and unique

It is user friendly

It´s easy to match to any other mapping code format

No heavy database maintenance

No need for database updates nor maintenance

CONCRETE EXAMPLES...

A classic hotel mapping example...

 

Hotel Barcelo Raval

Address: Rambla del Raval, 17-21, Ciutat Vella,

08001 Barcelona,

Spain

Long: 41.3791065

Lat: 2.1692302

CYRENE CODE GENERATED

HES-8FH495H9+HQ-E00

Cyrene code details: H for hotel, ES for Spain ISO country code, 8FH495H9+HQ for Plus code, E00 for no elevation specified nor needed

A "Non-hotel" mapping example...

Phoenix Heights By BridgeStreet

Address: 4 Mastmaker Road,

Tower Hamlets,

London, E14 9AJ,

United Kingdom

Long: 51.5002456

Lat: -0.222757

CYRENE CODE GENERATED

AGB-9C3XGX2H+37-E03

Cyrene code details: A for apartment, GB for England ISO country code, 9C3XGX2H+37 for Plus code, E03 for elevation specified at 3rd floor. In this example, another corporate property is situated on the second floor of the builing allowing us to map them differently without any confusion.

Two hotels in same building mapping...

Hilton Garden Inn San Diego

Address: 2137 Pacific Hwy Suite A, San Diego, CA 92101, États-Unis

CYRENE CODE GENERATED

HUS-8544PRGH+F8M-E00

Homewood Suites by Hilton San Diego

Address:2137 Pacific Hwy Suite B, San Diego, CA 92101, États-Unis

CYRENE CODE GENERATED

HUS-8544PRGH+F8-E00

Cyrene code details: Both hotels have the same code structure except for the plus code that has increased level detail adding a "+F8M" versus a "+F8" into the last part of the code, thus differentiating the two properties even if they are in the same building.

A hotel with no address

Sultan Sands Island Resort

Address: Kiwengwa Beach,

Zanzibar, 00000,

Tanzanie

Long: -5.9775092

Lat: 39.3525142

CYRENE CODE GENERATED

HTZ-6G6X29FF+HQ-E00

Cyrene code details: H for hotel, TZ for Tanzania ISO country code, 6G6X29FF+HQ for Plus code, E00 for no elevation specified nor needed.
