House numbers

House-numbers-example.png

Since November 2014 it is possible to search for house numbers which are inputted via the Waze Map Editor and saved in the Waze database. To support this functionality, Waze imported house number data from external sources, in multiple countries, like The Netherlands. This was not the case in Belgium or Luxembourg.


Adding house numbers:

  • Select a street
  • Click Edit house numbers
  • Zoom in to at least zoom=6
  • Click top center screen Add-house-numbers.png
  • Place the little blue circle on a house and enter the house number for this house.
  • Click Save


Source:

  • For adding house numbers in The Netherlands the WME OpenMaps script with the BAG map is very usefull.
  • The BAG viewer can be used to get information on house numbers in the Netherlands.


Navigating to an address:
When searching for an address in the Waze app or Live map, Waze will use the following order to present the results:
1) Manual created housenumbers
2) Google Maps database
3) Imported housenumber data
Bottom line: if you notice a wrongly positioned address/housenumber in the app or Live map, you can change it via the Waze Map Editor. Just give it a nudge and save. Make sure the endpoint is at the right location. This will result to a primarily suggested, correct location.

More information can be read on the global wiki page on house numbers.
