==Standard suffix abbreviationsHouse numbers==<!--T:1-->Waze convention [[File:House-numbers-example.png|top|right]]Since November 2014 it is possible to use suffix abbreviations search for <i>house numbers</i> which are inputted via the [[Waze Map Editor]] and saved in street namesthe Waze database. To support this functionality, In multiple countries, like The Netherlands, Waze imported house number data from external sources. ("Main Rd" instead of "Main Road")This was not done for Belgium and Luxembourg.<br />
<!--T:2-->* It is possible to add <i>house numbers</i> to several [[Road types|road types]] when [[Street and City names|Street and City name]] are specified.* Don't add <i>house numbers</i> to [[Pedestrian Boardwalk|pedestrian boardwalks]]. If house numbers are to be added to a [[Non-drivable roads|non-drivable road]] use [[Walking trail|walking trail]].* Add <i>house numbers</i> with an letters like 123A, 123B, letter in uppercase and without hyphen, * Add <i>house numbers</i> with a sub number like 123-1, 123-2, with a hyphen.* For now, combinations of such numbers like 123A-1 are not allowed.<br />''Notes'Source:'''* For adding house numbers in The Netherlands the [[WME OpenMaps script]] with the [[BAG]] map is very usefull.* The [[BAG|BAG viewer]] can be used to get information on <i>house numbers</i> in the Netherlands.* The house number information can be displayed in the [[Waze Map Editor|editor]] if the [[Kadastrale kaart]] is loaded over the <i>BAG</i> map.* For Flandres the map <i>Adrespunten Vlaanderen</i> can be used, also available via the [[WME OpenMaps script|OpenMaps script]].

2. Suffix abbreviations do ''not'' contain any punctuation, such as "===Remarks=== <code>.</code!--T:4-->" (Full-stops) * When searching for an address in the [[Waze app]] or "<code>[[Live map]], Waze will first check the own Waze house numbers -</code>" (Hyphens)both the manual created and the imported ones. If the house number isn't known in Waze, the Google Maps database is consulted.
3. In the event that the original suffix <!--T:5-->* If an address is on an unnamed road don't use a plural (ends in s) and only its singular form is present as house number to identify an abbreviation, simply address but add a [[Residential Place|private residence place]] which contains only the address. If necessary use an "s" entry point to specify the end of the abbreviationexact location.
* If the correct approach entrance to an address is from a street or segment other than the street the address is named after, then don't use a house number to identify an address but add a [[Residential Place|private residence place]] which contains only the address.
Legend<!--T: 10--># TTS = Text To Speech * When adding <i>house numbers</i> for supported countriesappartment buildings it is nice not to add all numbers on top of each other. Add them in such a way that an editor can trace, on the highest zoon level, each number individually.
* If some <i>house numbers</i> are missing, Waze will try to interpolate the missing <i>house number</i> of the requested address. This works in case of a lot of <i>house numbers</i> in a small spot or if <i>house numbers</i> are uniformly distributed in space between 2 registered <i>house numbers</i>. This interpolation works with a maximum step of 20, for both sides: the even and odd numbers. It is enough when the numbers 1, 21, 41 and 2, 22, 42 etc are entered.
