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).

Duplicate Cities

Due to New York's multiple duplicate city/town names throughout the state, New York has adopted the city name format of (City, County) if more than one of the same city/town/village exists. This is to help reduce routing confusion and prevent future issues due to the duplicates without having to decide which is more well known or has a higher population. 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.
