Waze’s Original Solution to Prevent Duplication
<p>Waze resolved duplicate city names when they launched the
map three ways.
# When a small town was surrounded by a larger township of the same name, the smaller town was identified as <b>Foocity</b> and the larger municipality got the name <b>Greater Foocity Area</b>. Sometimes this happened even if the names didn't match.
#When the towns were separated by some distance, Waze appended a counting number behind the name. So you might see <b>Foocity (2)</b> and <b>Foocity (3)</b> on the map in addition to <b>Foocity</b>.
#Waze dumped the city name altogether, which is one reason you see gaps in the Cities layer and roads with no city name.</p>
