used 'stop point' for consistency; added multiple categories section
Places is the Waze Point of Interest (POI) system.
===Point===
The Point type of Place is rendered with the following icons:
{{clear}}
'''Location Details'''
*The Point marker for a Place should be located on or nearest to the segment to which the driver should be navigated. The Point Marker is the stop point.
===Area===
The Area type of Place is rendered as a polygon. Just like a segment, you can adjust the shape by using the geometry handles. All Area Places in the editor show in pink when not selected and blue-green when selected:{{clear}}

'''Location Details'''
* The Area type has a target which is the navigation endpointstop point.* The target stop point can be moved anywhere within the shape and also a short distance outside the actual Area shape* The stop point target should be placed on or nearest to the segment to which the driver should be navigated.
===Setting the navigation stop point for a Place=======Point placement====
[[Image:Wme point on parkinglot segment.png|right]] The Point Area is to be placed on or nearest to the segment to which the driver should be navigated. Here is an example of a gas station Point located directly on a parking lot segment.

====Area placement====Here is an example of an Area (a large park in this case) which has an entry road on the east side. The second image is zoomed in on the target to show how this type of Area should have it's navigation target stop point set.

===Place address detail===
Every Place, whether Point or Area, should have as much detail completed as possible. This includes a name, proper categorization, and full street address, city and state. If any Place doesn't have a City or Street, you will need to check the None checkbox.
==Multiple categories==*A Place can be assigned to multiple categories*The Primary Category for a Place must be the first one you enter*The Primary Category is displayed in a darker shade of blue than the others*The Primary Category is used to determine whether to use a Point or Area for the Place  ==When to use Area or Point===
Here is the global guidance on selecting Area or Point for Places in the Waze Map Editor.

===Area+Point Combinations===
There are some situations where it will be appropriate to mix both Area and Point Places. For example, shopping centers and shopping malls where the mall itself could be considered a navigation destination, but there are also individual stores which are also valid for being marked.
