Noms de rues et de villes

  • Pour la plupart des types de routes il faut préciser le nom de Rue et de Ville .


Noms de Villes

Les noms de villes dans le BeNeLux sont figées et peuvent être consultées:


Attention pour la Belgique
Certaines situations ne sont pas claires comme par exemple la ville Wallone de Geest-Gérompont-Petit-Rosière. Le nom est introduit dans la base de donnée avec les 2 noms. Si vous essayez d'introduire une ville non existante, une erreur apparaitra lors de la sauvegarde dans WME.

Dutch City names
In the Netherlands the BAG is leading, for both street and city name.
Only use one City name, also if a local village or neighboorhood is also known under another name.

Street names

All segments should get a City name, and most segments also get a Street name. When entering the Street name, we use the Street name in the official language of the area. For the 19 cities in Brussels area where 2 official languages exist, we use the French version. As a reference, you can find the official language in the City names list.

As there is a City name and Street name, it's possible there is also a road number. This road number should be positioned before the Streetname. Some examples:

  • N200 - S103 - Haarlemmerweg
  • N68 - E421 - Route d'Eupen
  • N451 - Kieldrechtsebaan


If the road is part of a U-route, the U-route identification, like U27, should be added as alternative street name.

Pronounciation

Remarks on the pronounciation of street names in the Text to speak navigation:

  • The primary Street is used.
  • Abbreviated titles like Prof and Dr should be spelled with a period after the abbreviated title, like Prof. and Dr. to get the pronounciation right.
  • If the offical Street name differs from the correct pronounciated Street name the official Street name should be defined as alternative name.

Routing

There can be a problem with navigating to a fully defined destination - house number present or Residential Place defined - when there is closeby a segment with a matching Alternative Street name. For a complete description and the solution of this problem see Routing to matching Alternative Street names.
