Use of the City Field in Florida

Use the following checklist step-by-step to determine whether the "City" field for a segment or place should contain a name or be marked as "None":


STEP 1 - Incorporated Municipality. Is it on the list of legally incorporated municipalities? If NO, proceed to Step 2. If YES, check if your segment / place falls within the city limits by using Florida Mapping Resources. If it is not within the city limits, make sure it's not in an adjacent city or eligible location specified below. If not, stop here, you're done.

STEP 2 - Large Census Designated Place. Is it on the list of large Census Designated Places? If NO, then proceed to Step 3. If YES, The geographic boundaries of many CDP's can be found on the US Census Bureau website; use these boundaries. See if the county PA / GIS website listed at Florida Mapping Resources shows the boundaries. If you still can't find defined boundaries for the CDP, take a scroll through along a major roadway in street view to see where FDOT or the county may have placed signs indicating where the CDP begins and ends.

STEP 3 - County Property Appraiser. If you look up a parcel on the roadway in question using a Property Appraiser's website listed at Florida Mapping Resources, does it list your target name as a valid address? If NO, proceed to Step 4. If YES, try to determine the boundaries for use of that City name by checking subsequent parcels in the area or checking county GIS sites listed at Florida Mapping Resources.

STEP 4 - Indian Reservations / Government Installations. Is the segment / place located on an Indian Reservation or Government Installation? If NO, proceed to Step 5. If YES, listing the name of the reservation or installation in the City field may be appropriate. If you think YES, consult a State Manager or Regional Coordinator for more guidance.

STEP 5 - Other Place of Significance. There are many other Census Designated Places and points of interest throughout Florida, but many are small. Does your target location have a major cultural significance (e.g. tourist attraction, county seat, travel milestone (e.g. Yeehaw Junction))? If you think YES, consult a State Manager or Regional Coordinator for more guidance. If NO, then mark the City field as "None". Stop here, you're done. There are no more options.

FINAL INSTRUCTIONS

Use Incorporated Name [Final Instruction 1] Use the incorporated city name in the city field for the segment or place.

Use US Census Map for CDP [Final Instruction 2] Use the PDF maps or the CDP overlays provided here with WME Overlay. The geographic boundaries of CDP's can be found on the US Census Bureau website. Please use the names shown for segments or places within those boundaries.

Determine Boundaries [Final Instruction 3] Determine Boundaries for city name address. Determine the boundaries of that City name by checking subsequent parcels in the area or checking county GIS sites listed at Florida Mapping Resources.

Contact Regional Managment [Final Instruction 4] Listing the name of the reservation or installation in the City field may be appropriate. If you think YES, consult a State Manager or Regional Coordinator for more guidance.

Mark City as None [Final Instruction 5] You have exausted all means of providing a city name for the segment or place. You may click the "none" checkbox for the city name.


This new page is currently undergoing modifications. The information and guidance is currently considered accurate enough to be followed now. Content is being prepared by one or more users. Do not make any changes before you send a private message to this user.

This is a clickable interactive guide to determine when a city name should or should not be used in the city field of a segment or place.

A text version of this information is available here.

Introduction

While the illustrations displayed by each question may not represent every possible variation, they do represent the difference between the two options in that question. Please choose the most appropriate answer.

Notes

NOTE: Mailing addresses alone are not a determining factor for filling in the City field; city limits are. For example, everyone who lives in Leon County has a "Tallahassee, FL" mailing address, but not everyone in Leon County lives within the incorporated city limits of Tallahassee. Most unincorporated county areas should have the City field checked as "None", unless they meet one of the following exceptions.


How to Use

To use this interactive flowchart;

  • Start with the first question in The Interactive Algorithm.
  • Click on the appropriate answer which best matches your situation. A new question will jump to the top of the screen
  • Continue answering the questions until an instruction is displayed at the top of the screen.



The interactive algorithm

(01)

STEP 1 - Incorporated Municipality.

Is the name on the list of legally incorporated municipalities? If YES, check if your segment / place falls within the city limits by using the appropriate local gis source such as one of the resources from Florida Mapping Resources. If it is not within the city limits, make sure it's not in an adjacent city or eligible location specified below. If not, stop here, you're done.

YES


If NO, proceed to Step 2.

NO



(19)

Do the origin and the destination meet at a Roundabout?


Round about street round about MH mH round about ramps

YES


intersection bowtie

NO



(02)

Is the turn angle from the origin to the destination between How Waze determines turn / keep / exit maneuvers/Turn threshold and 150°?


Turn left angle.png Turn left agc.png Turn right.png

YES


Keep left ps to ps bc.png Keep right ps to ramp.png Exit right ramp to ramp.png Exit left ramp to ramp.png

[[#04|NO, the turn angle is less How Waze determines turn / keep / exit maneuvers/Stay threshold]]


NO, the turn angle is greater than 150°
SPECULATION NOTE: This is unconfirmed Turns with angles greater than 150° will follow the same instruction path as [[#03|How Waze determines turn / keep / exit maneuvers/Turn threshold-150°]], but the Waze routing server will penalize this turn, and avoid routing through it.



(03)

(27)

Are there five (5) or more segments (junctions) connected to the roundabout?

more than 4 nodes not normal angles more than 4 nodes

YES => At the Roundabout Take the #xx Exit


4 nodes

NO



(28)

From the perspective of the origin, are the roundabout angles to all the other segments between 0°-15°, or 75°-105°?


YES


NO => At the Roundabout Take the #xx Exit



(29)

What direction is the destination relative to the origin?

The navigation instructions

No Instruction

There will be No instruction given passing through this junction. This can be caused by several factors including

  • Best Continuation
  • Certain cases with an overlapping segment
  • The instruction would be Continue Straight (this doesn't yet exist in the client application)

NOTE: In the client app there will be a digit inside the circle representing which number exit you must take (starting from the origin).

If the roundabout is not formed correctly (more than one entering/exiting segment connected to same roundabout node), you may get an instruction "at the roundabout, exit number 0" with a partial verbal instruction.
