Parking Lots are sparsely drawn, to prevent cluttering the map. The most important thing is that people can be routed to and from a parking lot. For small Parking Lots, a single road segment often suffices. For large Parking Lots (for example at an event center) consider mapping only the following:
- Main entrances from the roads outside the parking lot
- Lanes that run along entrances of buildings
- Lanes that run along main roads outside the parking area (to separate different speed tracks)
- Large parking lot lanes that serve to get people from one area of the lot to another
Parking Lot Roads need to be defined as such in the menu pane left. They generate a large penalty to prevent thru-traffic in the navigation.
A Parking Lot Road only gets the City defined, without a street name (check the "None" box), unless it's an official street. Never use generic names, like 'Parking Theater'. For detailed information, please read the page about Parking Lot Roads in BeNeLux.
For large Parking Lots that are distinctive and significant, and for general purpose and public use, a Parking Lot Place can be drawn.
Since november 2014 it is possible to search for housenumbers in the Waze database. To support this functionality, Waze imported housenumber data from external sources, in multiple countries, like The Netherlands. This was not the case in Belgium or Luxemburg.
When searching for an address in the Waze app or Live map, Waze will use the following order to present the results:
- Manually created housenumbers
- Google Maps database
- Imported housenumber data
Imported housenumbers can be recognized for there is no editor linked to the housenumber in the housenumber screen. For the best working of Waze follow this guideline: if you notice a wrongly positioned address/housenumber in the app or livemap, add the housenumber or correct the housenumber in the Waze Map Editor. If the housenumber looks correct, but there is no editor linked to it yet, just give it a nudge and Save. Now you should see your name linked to the housenumber when you select it. See also our Wiki page on House numbers.
Note: Be aware that, in the app, old search records should be removed to get an updated result.
