Hospitals / Urgent Care

Only Hospitals, Emergency Rooms, and Urgent Care Facilities should use the Hospital / Urgent Care category. This category is to be used for places offering urgent / emergency care. Other medical facilities such as clinics and medical offices which do not offer urgent medical care for walk-ins should be categorized as "Doctor/Clinic" . Hospitals should be mapped as an Area Place encompassing the entire medical facility. Additionally, hospital Emergency Room entrances should be mapped as a Point Place at the ER entrance to aid in navigating to the proper entrance. For full details consult Places/Hospitals_and_urgent_care

Parking Lots

Guidance has changed and it is appropriate to map most parking lots. Guidelines for parking lots are covered in https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/Places/Parking_lot

Gas Stations

In the Plains region, stations are named as Station Name (Brand). If the station brand is unknown, then Station Name. If the station name and brand are the same, then Brand. For example:

Joe's Gas & Tackle [Store Name with no Brand]
QuikTrip [Store Name & Brand are the same]
