Catégories des points d'intérêt

Les catégories de Points d'intérêt proposées par Waze ne correspondent pas toujours à ce qui est souhaité localement et il n'est pas possible d'adapter celles-ci pour le moment.

The Place categories used in Waze are not always directly applicable in BeLux, for they are global categories. At this time, it is not possible to adapt these categories to local customs. If you cannot find an applicable sub category, just use the main category and add the missing category in front of the name in the alternate name field.

This overview shows the categories used for the Waze Places. For mapping guidelines, please read the page about Places.

Note that circumstances may require a different approach. The different regions use a different locking strategy (see table below). In any case, if a Place needs more protection, a higher lock level can be used.

Regional differences

Regional guidelines
Flanders Brussels Wallonia Luxembourg
lock If a lock is required, the minimum lock level is described in the tables below. Places may be locked at L3 or higher when considered completed. In any case, do not reduce the lock of complete POIs. Places that are considered complete, aka contain all relevant information available, are locked to L3, to prevent unwanted edits. Places that are considered complete, aka contain all relevant information available, are locked to L3, to prevent unwanted edits.

Waze a une série de catégories principales divisées en sous catégories.

Lorsque vous choisissez une catégorie dans WME, une liste déroulante vous permet de choisir une sous-catégorie. Vous pouvez aussi, si vous connaissez la catégorie désirée, directement l'encoder. Il est impératif de choisir une catégorie.

Si vous hésitez, veuillez contacter un gestionnaire dans votre zone.

Missing Categories link to this section

If you cannot find a suitable category, choose the most applicable category. You can add the missing category in front of the name in the alternate name field.
Example: Butcher Sans Os

  • main Waze Category: Supermarket/Grocery.
  • Primary name: "Sans Os".
  • alternate name: "butcher Sans Os"

Note that when the name in itself is clear enough indicative for the kind of Place (ING, Décathlon, Carrefour, etc.) there is no need to put a category in front of the name.
