Places (Malaysia)/zh-my

From Wazeopedia

地标是可以在位智地图里搜索的目的地。 地标就跟其它导航设备里"兴趣景点"相似。

区域地标是以多边形态呈现在位智地图(在位智地图上可以看到面积的地标)。 太多的区域地标会造成地图混乱,因为大型的灰色地带不利于智友定位。 因此,区域地标只应用在拥有特色的地标/特别的景点。

的地标不会在位智地图里显示。 点的地标可以用来帮助智友找到公共场所,特别是那些还没有被纳入其它搜索引擎的公共场所。



每个地方,无论是点还是区域,都应该尽可能要有更多及更完善的细节。 这包括名称,正确的分类,完整的街道地址,城市和州。 如果任何地方没有城市或街道,请在无的复选框中打勾。




Place Details


我们根据位智用户当前搜索的内容选择了120个类别。 我们的目标是让其尽可能广泛,我们理解,可能有很多地方没有一个确切的合适分类。 对于这些地方,请使用可能包含其所在分类的类别。

  • 一个地方可以被分配到多个类别
  • 地点的主要分类必须第一个输入
  • 主要分类显示时会比其他分类有更深的蓝色
  • 主要分类是确定其地点是点地标或是区域地标

If you know what brand gasoline a gas station sells, you should select it as the Brand. Stations named after their brands, such as big companies like PETRONAS, Shell, Petron, Mobil, ESSO, are easy to identify the brand which should be selected. If the brand gasoline a gas station sells is new and isn't available in the drop down list, leave the field blank.
This field is only available for the Gas Station.


BEWARE: Do not use the Description field for notes to other editors. This field is visible in the Waze app, and should only contain details pertinent to the Place itself.


Places considered fundamental to the functioning of the Waze app, such as Gas Stations, should be locked at least to Level 3 to prevent loss of data due to automatic acceptance of submissions from Trusted Users. Other complex, intricate, or crucial Places such as Police Stations, Fire Departments, Airports, Parks should also be considered for locking to prevent loss of data.

Note :-
Please lock all the moderated places at minimum Level 3.


Public places can be turned into private places, but private places cannot be turned into public places. Use this to convert places mistakenly labeled as public into private. Private places only contain photos and an exact address, without all the other properties of a place.


When all the detail below has been complete, click the Apply button. If no changes are to be made, click the Cancel button.

More Info Tab

In the More Info tab is additional helpful information for the Place. Here you will add phone number, website, additional services, and hours of operation:

Place More Info


Services help users decide if they should drive to a particular place. Here are descriptions of available services. Waze uses the same set of services for every place type. The service checkbox only has two states, 'yes' or 'no answered', thus there is no way to determine if a place either does not have a service or an editor hasn't added one yet.

Valet service The place has valet parking whereby drivers can valet their car, leaving it with an attendant who will park it for them. These services could be free or fee-based.

Drive-through The place has a drive-through window, which serves food or other items via window that allows the driver not to leave their vehicle. Restaurants, banks, and pharmacies often have drive-through windows.

Wi-Fi The place has free Wi-Fi available for customers. Wi-Fi can be completely open, or accessible with a password that the place operator supplies the user.

Restrooms The place has public restrooms where customers can use a toilet.

Accepts credit cards The place accepts any type of credit card for payment of goods or services. At this time Waze does not differentiate between credit card types.

Reservations The place accepts reservations, i.e. a reserved time for dining in the place.

Outdoor seating The place allows diners to eat outside, weather permitting. Outdoor seating may be on the curb, sidewalk, or in a fenced in area on the premises.

Air conditioning The place has air conditioning, to cool and dehydrate the air when the ambient temperature considered to be warm or hot. This may be possible to infer by looking for air conditioning condensers or chillers on roofs or near buildings on aerial photography within the Waze Map Editor.

Parking for customers The place has parking for customers where they can leave their car, which could be free or for a fee, where the customer parks their own car and walks to the place.

Deliveries At this time this service is unclear. It could mean that the place either accepts deliveries, e.g. from UPS or FedEx, or makes deliveries of food or products to the customer, within a certain range.


The phone number format are as shown on the table below.

WazeMy Phone No. Format Example
ZZZ-XXX YYYY 012-345 6789
ZZ-XXXX YYYY 03-1234 5678
ZZ-XXX YYYY 03-123 4567
1-XXX-XX-XXXX 1-800-88-1234 / 1-300-88-1234

Opening Hours

The Opening hours section allows editor to add or delete the hours of operation for Places, including unique times for each day of the week. The hours submitted in the editor may not overlap, or a save error will occur.

Opening Hours

Photos Tab

Any photos which drivers have added to a Place will appear in the Photos tab. In WME, we can only review and delete photos. Photos can only be uploaded from the Waze app. Click on a picture to view a larger version.

Place Photos
Deleting a Place photo

Take great care to make a well thought-out decision to delete a photo. Once a photo is deleted, it cannot be recovered. Delete only if the photo really is unclear, not helpful and/or inappropriate.

Wme place photo hover.png

Any improper or inappropriate photos should be removed. Hover the mouse over a picture in the Place Photos tab, and click the X which appears at the top right of the photo.

Place Updates Request (Moderation)

Wme placemarker new.pngWme placemarker new photo.pngWme placemarker updated details.png The Places updates layer will display Places with update request(s) pending. When an untrusted driver submits a new Place or an update to an existing Place, these go into a type of moderation status. The Place Update Request (PUR) marker shown to the left display to let you know, similar to an Update Request, the location of a pending Place update.

Area with update marker
  • The Place update request markers will only appear if you have the "Place updates" layer enabled.
  • Point Places with pending updates will display with the Wme place pending update.png icon even when the "Place updates" layer is disabled.
  • With the Place updates layer enabled, an Area Place will display with an update request marker at its center.
New Place

When you click on the Place update request marker, you will be presented with a panel which details the updates the Wazer has submitted. The exact content of the panel will differ depending on the type and amount of information input by the end user using the Waze app.

  • When you click on any Place which has a pending update, the following message will appear in the left tabs area of the editor screen. Clicking on it will display the update details just the same as clicking on the Place update marker.

Wme places update pending notice.png
Very long full Place update

Accept or reject?

The job of the Waze editor is to accept or reject Place Updates Request sent by users from the Waze app. The general guideline to use to determine whether to Accept the update is,

"Is all the information provided in the update request correct and according to WazeMy Place guideline?"

A Place update, if the user completes ALL the information, can be extremely long (expand thumbnail to the right).

If some of the data is incorrect, or the photo include in the update request is improper and unhelpful to drivers, the editor must direct reject the Place Update Request and re-create the Place with all the correct information (if the Place Update Request is a newly added place).

WazeMy editor only can accept the Place Update Request with all the information provided in the request are correct and according to WazeMy Place guideline.

Determining Acceptable Photos

Defining exactly what is an acceptable photo is difficult because the huge variation in destinations. In general terms, the pictures of Places should be such that a driver could use the picture to help determine exactly which destination is the correct one. The system will try to show the arriving user the most relevant photo from their direction of arrival, time of day, etc.

Take great care to make a well thought-out decision to delete a photo. Once a photo is deleted, it cannot be recovered. Delete only if the photo really is unclear, not helpful and/or inappropriate.

The following are meant as guidelines both for the editor and for users taking pictures. Photos should:

  • Show the exterior of the Place and NOT the INTERIOR.
  • Be clear (not blurry, through rain-covered/dirty windows, not from moving vehicles/trains, etc)
  • Be well lit (not dark without lighting at night).
  • Help differentiate the Place location from nearby Places.

Photos could include images of, but not necessarily limited to:

  • ENTRANCES which have signage so that Wazers can identify the place
  • Image of the front/side of Place (angled) to exemplify the correct building
  • Include Street side signage of the Place
  • Daylight images
  • Night or evening images, as long as the image is clear and helps the driver identify the Place

Photos should not show :

  • People's faces - any photo with a fully identifiable face should be removed, or rejected.
  • Car license plates - any photo with a fully identifiable license plate should be removed, or rejected.
  • Anything which allows a viewer to tie a person to a specific location will be rejected.
  • Any pornographic content, nudity, sexual content or simulation, etc.
  • Floor, sky, speedometer, selfie and anything that is not related to the place.
  • The place photo that is upside down or slanting to one side.

Duplicate Places

When a user submits an update for a Place, but does not, or cannot, choose an existing Place in the app, it will show in the Waze Map Editor as a New Place. It could also happen that two users report a new Place at the same moment which results in two New Places.

At this time, there is no "merge updates" or "merge Places" functionality in the editor. You may have to manually copy new/updated information from the Place update to the existing Place. You cannot copy/move photos.

When you find a Place update which would duplicate an existing Place

  1. Copy updated valuable information from the newly created Place to the previously-existing Place
  2. Reject the Place Update Request
  3. Save

If two New Place updates which are for the same place, please approve the Place Update Request which

  • Contains more than just a photo, and
  • Provides useful, updated information
  • Mo mistake in the place update request

If the criteria cannot be met the WazeMy guideline, then Reject the Place Update Request.

Place Update FAQs

Who can moderate places?

Users with Level 2 and higher can moderate within their editing areas.

What requires moderation?

  • For new places: every new place which is created by a level 1 editor which is untrusted requires an approval by a level 2+ editor.
  • For place updates: every update which is done for a place which is locked above the user’s level will require a moderation by a sufficiently ranked user.
  • Flagged (Reported Problem): all flags (for potentially problematic images or places) need to be moderated by a level 2+ editor.

What is a trusted user?

Once some contributions by the same user have been reviewed positively by a moderator, we consider that user trusted. They can now add new places directly without any moderation. Updates to existing places are still pending a review if these places are locked.

What kind of places should we approve?

Almost anything which represents a real place should probably be approved. If a Wazer would ever make benefit from knowing that this place exists, it’s worth it. Exceptions are places which include private user information, inappropriate content, or otherwise irrelevant.

If found even 1 mistake in the details of a place , you must reject it and then re-create it accordingly.

What kind of photos should we approve?

Any photo which helps the user understand what this place is like is great. Outside pictures are even better, and we have a system that will try to show the arriving user the most relevant photo from his direction of arrival, time of day, etc. Inappropriate pictures or pictures which are not related to the place should be rejected.

Please remember - rejecting both places and photos will prevent the reporting user from getting points and might even get them blocked.

Can I partially reject an update?

Currently not. If a suggestion is only partially correct, it is recommended to reject it, save, and then re-create/edit the place.

Can I move a photo from one Place to another?

No. This function is not available in the editor

Can I move or merge any data from a duplicate Place update to an existing Place?

No. You will have to manually copy over updated information.

Can a user become blocked from adding new places?

Every user (trusted or not) can become blacklisted and banned from adding places once they have tried adding a certain amount of places or updates which have been rejected. We also track places that have been flagged and removed - if we see a pattern where a certain user created many of these, he might be blacklisted.

Who gets the points for the new places created after an approval?

Users do not get points for pending places and updates - only when a moderator approved the suggestion the user gets the points for his contribution. The moderation action itself (either a rejection or an approval) grants the moderating user with an edit point.

Do we get points for creating places from the client?

We grant the exact same number of points for the same edit whether it’s done from the client or the web editor.


Some places can belong to one of Waze’s advertising partners. These places will be locked for community editing for the duration of the campaign, but editors can still suggest edits - the Waze ad operations team will review and consider all suggestions to these locked places.

What is the Residential setting? Private and public places

Our main goal in this project is to improve the data our users can get about public places. Since adding places is fun and can be even somewhat addictive, we figured our users might want to add private places (their home, for instance) as well. We want to provide an outlet for that, so that we can avoid having private places wrongly listed as public.

Private places will not be searchable, and we will not expose the identity of whoever created them or attached pictures to them. We will be using the pictures and exact locations to improve our house numbers database and show photos to people driving explicitly to that address.

Private / public
Public places can be turned into private places, but private places cannot be turned into public places. Use this to convert places mistakenly labeled as public into private. Private places only contain photos and an exact address, without all the other properties of a place.

Any Place that functions as a landmark may be represented as an Area Place even if the table above indicates otherwise. A landmark Place is defined as a named, architecturally unique location, locally well known for its uncommon height or iconic exterior appearance, easily visible to and recognizable by passing drivers, that is visually and obviously unlike its immediate surroundings.
Landmarks are not to be confused with local references. A local reference is a location used for orientation by those who frequently pass near it. Every landmark is a local reference, but not every local reference is a landmark. For example, Petronas Twin Tower is a landmark, while an ordinary tire shop with a big, brightly colored sign is a local reference.
