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)

Which direction is the turn?


Turn left angle.png Turn left agc.png

Left => Turn Left


Turn right.png

YES


NO



(11)

Is the name of any of the other branches identical to the origin?

(15)

Is the origin a highway? ( Freeway ,  Major Highway , or  Minor Highway )


YES


NO



(16)

NO => Exit Right



(17)

Is the origin a  Ramp ?

YES


NO => Keep/Stay Right



(18)

YES => Keep/Stay Right


NO => Exit Right



(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?


Left => At the Roundabout Turn Left


Straight => At the Roundabout Continue Straight


Right => At the Roundabout Turn Right


U Turn, Back => At the Roundabout Make a U Turn



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)

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.

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":


Mailing Address for City field in Waze

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.

Start Here

Step 1 : Incorporated Municipality

Is the segment within a city on the list of legally incorporated municipalities below?

YES: Step 1a


NO: Step 2























Step 1a - Verify City Limits

Check if your segment falls within the city limits by using the appropriate state's mapping resources below

Is the segment Within the City Limits?

YES:Incorporated City Limits


NO: Step 2























Step 2 - Census Designated Place (CDP)

Click the image below for the state you are researching and scroll to the bottom. The list of places includes all Incorporated Cities and all Census Designated Places. You will find CDP after each Census Designated Place. DO NOT assume these boundaries are correct for Incorporated Cities. Only use these files to find the boundaries for Census Designated Places.

Is the CDP listed on the appropriate state's list?

YES: Step 2a


NO: Step 3























Step 2a: Determine Geographic Boundaries

The geographic boundaries of CDP's can be viewed from the links above by clicking on the correct county, or they can be overlaid on WME by following the presentation Overlay CDP's on WME by t0cableguy. The PDF's or the shapefiles provided by the census.gov website are the ONLY approved source for CDP boundaries.

Is the segment within a Census Designated Place listed below the state map in the links or files provided above?

YES: CDP


NO: Step 3























STEP 3 - County Property Appraiser

If you look up a parcel for the segment using the appropriate Property Appraiser's website does it list the target name as a valid address?

YES: Step 3a


NO: Step 4























Step 3a: Determine boundaries of target name Try to determine the boundaries for use of that target name by checking subsequent parcels in the area or checking county GIS sites for your state provided below.


YES: Target Name


NO: Step 4























STEP 4 - Indian Reservations / Government Installations

Is the segment / place located on an Indian Reservation or Government Installation?

YES: Consult


NO: Step 5























STEP 5 - Other Place of Significance.

There are many other Census Designated Places and points of interest throughout the Southeast Regsion, 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))?

YES: Consult

NO: No City

YES: Consult


NO: No CIty





















Options for City Name Field



Incorporated City Name City Name Here.png

Segment is within an Incorporated City's Limits. Use the city name in the city field for the segment.


Start Over























Census Designated Place(CDP) CDP Name Here.png

Segment is within a Census Designated Place's(CDP) boundary. Please Use this CDP in the city field.

Do not use this as the city name if it is an incorporated city and the segment is outside its city limits.

Start Over
























Use Target Name in City Field Target Name Here.png

Segment is listed in appraisers maps as the city name for multiple parcels. Please Use this target name in the city field.

Do not use this as the city name if it is an incorporated city and the segment is outside its city limits.

Start Over























Consult Regional Managment

Listing the name of the reservation or installation in the City field may be appropriate. If you think it may be beneficial to map, consult a State Manager or Regional Coordinator for more guidance.

Do not use this as the city name if it is an incorporated city and the segment is outside its city limits.

Start Over























No City

Segment is not within any of the possible city name options. Please check None for the city field. These aren't the droid's you are looking for.
