This paper proposes a new place-name classification table considering geographical features and soil characteristics, which helps interpretation of seismic hazard maps. This table is classified into two soil groups (stiff soil and soft soil) based on the origin of their Chinese characters. We select bus-stop name from many kinds of place-name. This reason is the following two points. Distribution density of bus-stop is almost evenly in the city, bus-stop name mostly remain past place-name. The validity of the new place-name classification table and bus-stop name is clarified through case studies on the three major metropolitan areas of Japan.
