Cities and towns
One of the most common errors when editing the maps is when an editor creates a road and does not confirmthe road by setting the city and road name (or stating it has none).
Due to New York's multiple duplicate city/town names throughout the state, New York has adopted the city name format of (City, County). This is to help reduce routing confusion and prevent future issues due to the duplicates. Duplicate cities can be caused by incorrectly named segments and should be corrected following the guidelines:
- If the city already exists within WME and just simply needs to be renamed, instead of renaming every segment within the City/Town/Village, a Country Manager can easily rename the entire city polygon at once.
- If the city name exists but also has a Greater XXX City also you will need to submit the Cities Form to merge the two together, then resubmit it to be renamed or reach out to a Country Manager to update the polygon immediately.
- If the city does not exist reach out to a SM+ to have the city created.
