When completed, places should be locked, to prevent inadvertent damage. Please don't lock places to their highest level until most of their information is completed, but do lock to a level higher than 1, once you have verified ''any'' information, to help protect from accidental damage through client submissions. The following are recommended (minimum) levels::5 - Hospitals, universities, park and ride lots, arenas, airports:4 - Police Dept / Fire Station:4 - Large areas - (State Parks, if mapped, etc.):3 - Gas StationMost other places should be locked at 3, once completed.== Parking Lots ==
==Naming Standards==We are standardizing the naming of most public facilities and businesses. This makes search results more consistent and useful, and gives Wazers a more professional and uniform experience. :''The names have been designed decision to work well with instant search, regular searchmap a Parking-Lot '''Place''' is covered here, and the decision to be clear and concise map a Parking-Lot '''Road''' is covered in the map display. Please follow these guidelines when naming the places described below[[Road Types (USA)#Parking Lot Road|Road type article for mapping parking lot roads]].''
Places which are part of a larger area place (e.g. place points :''The forum discussion thread for parking lots in a university area, the Parking-Lot Place is separate ER entrances in a hospital areafrom the general Place thread, etcand is located [http://www.waze.) should be named with their unique name followed by a hyphen and the name of the larger area they belong tocom/forum/viewtopic. For example "ER - Parkland Hospital" ===Government Agencies=php?f=276&t= 87595 here].''
All places The '''Parking Lot''' Place marks a well-defined area constructed for the following agencies should be named according to the standards off-street public or private parking, including parking structures and garages as follows:well as at-grade lots.
'''City and County Offices''': City === Area or County Name followed by City Hall or department or agency as appropriate, for example::"Dallas City Hall":"Travis County Probation":"Bexar County Courthouse"Point ===
'''Police Parking lot places can ONLY be added as an area as of August 14th, 2016 and Sheriffonly with the singular category of 's Departments'Parking Lot'': City, Agency or Division Name followed by "Police Dept" or "Sheriff's Dept", for example::"Dallas Police Dept":"Austin Police - North Substation ":"Tarrant County Sherrif's Dept":"Travis County Sherrif's Office".
'''Fire Stations''': Agency Name or abbreviation followed by “Fire Station – “ and the station number. For example::"DFD Fire Station - 15":"Austin Fire Station - 3":"Whitehouse Vol Fire Station - 2"==== Extent ====
'''Light Rail Stations''': Start At this time, parking lots should not be added to businesses like gas stations or businesses with small parking lots (less than 20 spaces). This guidance may change in the Agencyfuture as further enhancements are made to the parking lot UI. Start by adding parking lots to event venues, which lineshopping centers, followed by the station nameairports, public use lots, garages, multi-use parking lots, etc. For example::"DART Rail – Akard Street Station":"DART Green Line – Fair Park Station"
In generalFor a mall or large shopping center, City Bus stops should not be mappedbreak the parking lot up into multiple lots (use your discretion or discuss with your State Manager(s) or RC for official guidance if necessary. )
'''United States Postal Service''': Start For underground garages it is hard to know the name with CDP or Station nameexact polygon, then append “Post Office”. Place so try to estimate it based on your knowledge of the City name place, and in that case the ZIP code accuracy of the Post Office in the Description box, so it will be viewable in the app GO page. Alternate name should be “USPS”entry point is even more important. For example::"Oak Lawn Post Office":"White Rock Station Post Office"
Here If a lot is stacked (underground + surface), map it as one place covering the USPS tool to find footprint of the names of specific post offices. https:/parking lot /toolsgarage.usps.com/go/POLocatorAction!input Future UI enhancements may allow for better modeling of these lots.action
If a lot has different entrances serving different levels of a multi-level garage and you cannot drive from one level to another to park, but rather the levels are served independently by different entrances, then they should be mapped as multiple places.
For planned parking features, it'''US VA Hospitalss important that the shape of the polygon be drawn as close as possible to the actual shape of the parking lot, including the entry/Centers/Clinicsexit location. Keeping in mind that for multi-level garages, only the footprint of the structure should be outlined.  As with all Area Places, a Parking-Lot Area Place''': Should s geometry nodes should not be named with their official name allowed to "snap" to adjacent road segments or junctions while being adjusted. Doing so can make the Area Place, as well as the primary nameadjacent segments or junctions, more difficult to modify. ==== Naming ==== Like all Places, Parking-Lot Places should be named. For VA hospitals If a parking facility or area has a documented identity, such as "Beach Street Garage", "18th Avenue/medical centers Geary Lot", "City Lot #7", "(US Veterans Only)Short-Term Parking", "Cell-Phone Lot" , etc., its Place should reflect that name to facilitate searches. Generic park-and-ride lots should be added named consistently according to the end of the primary namelocal custom, and for example as the first line of the description"Park & Ride". In  If a Parking-Lot Area Place is contained within a larger Area Place, do not repeat the primary larger Area's full name. For example, if the Domestic Garage is contained within the "VASFO San Francisco International Airport" should Area Place boundaries, it need not be expanded as named "SFO San Francisco International Airport Domestic Garage"; "Veterans AffairsSFO Domestic Garage", so as not to cause is sufficient. In rare cases a TTS conflict with Virginiamunicipality or district provides public parking distinct from any other Area Place but without any documented or signed identity. Names These can be shortened to remove extraneous words; named after the municipality or district, for example, replace "Campus of theRedwood City Public Parking". Do not use completely generic names such as "Parking" or "Public Parking" from the official name for anonymous parking facilities.  As with all Area Places, do not use mapping abbreviations for any part of a hyphen (Parking-)Lot Place name. Any colloquial names  ==== Drawing ==== The Parking-Lot Area Place should never be attached/snapped to roads. Places snapped to roads are difficult to edit.  For planned parking features, it's important that the shape of the polygon be added drawn as close as alt namespossible to the actual shape of the parking lot, so they are returned including the entry/exit location. Keeping in search resultsmind that for multi-level garages, only the footprint of the structure should be outlined.  ==== Airports ==== Airports typically distinguish between parking for different terminals, for short or long term, and for cell-phone/waiting. As common navigation destinations, such parking deserves to be marked with Parking-Lot Area Places and also at named according to the airport's documented nomenclature.  ==== Rental-car return ==== With the beginning availability of the descriptionnew "Car Rental" Place, rental-car facilities and returns, including at airports, so they are visible on should now be marked with that Place category. If the return location is a normal parking-Lot, then mark it with the Parking-Lot category and the building as a separate place preview page in with the Car Rental category. === On-premise Parking === *It is important to create 2 separate places - one for the clientcomplex / place, and one for its designated parking lot. Some examples*Multiple parking lots for one premise:Create separate parking lots so the best parking lot can be recommended.*Valet parking - Valet is a service attribute of a place but is also an attribute for a parking lot.:"Veterans Affairs *Multi- Healthcare Center at Harlingen level lots should be created as single place with the shape of the overall parking surface outlined. === Underground Parking Lots ===*Create a polygon surrounding the parking lot’s estimated perimeter (US Veterans Onlyif you know its boundaries)"and locate the entrance point in the original location.  :*If parking lots overlap with a Place, do not add "Veterans Medical Clinic - McAllenParking Lot"category to a Place. Create a separate Area polygon for the parking lot.:"Veterans Affairs === The Parking- North Texas Health Care System Lot Point Place === As of this writing, you can no longer add Parking Lots as a point place. === Locking Standards ===Due to this major shift in editing guidelines, it is recommended that once a parking lot area (US Veterans OnlyPLA)"has been added, that it be locked to 3 to avoid newer editors, or those not familiar with the change, from editing or deleting the PLA.
