Below is the full list of Landmark Types provided by WME as well as information as to which should and should not be mapped in the State of Connecticut. For those that should be mapped, information is provided on how to properly map them.

When creating Landmarks, please do not forget that a recent update to WME has enabled the Address properties for Landmarks (City, State & Country) and ensure this information is filled out & correct.

Transportation

Gas Station

We've heard from Waze that we SHOULD be creating landmarks for Gas Stations in the US, and there will be changes to the Gas Station system in the US soon. Map as fence line, make sure the landmark does not snap to roads. At this time, the "Name" property should be set to the brand of the gas station (i.e. "Mobil", not "Joe's Town Mobil & Repair"). Due to a rise in independent stations, several have adopted generic names, for these stations, use whatever shows prominently up on the signage. NOTE: Gas Station Landmarks suppress Traffic Jams & Automatic System Detected Errors and as such care should be taken to ensure they don't snap to roads.

Toll booth

Not Mapped. Also, there are no Toll Booths in the state.

Parking Lot

Listed below are the ONLY parking lots mapped with landmarks, there are several other landmarks that are mapped to cover parking lots associated with those venues. NOTE: Parking Lot Landmarks suppress Traffic Jams & Automatic System Detected Errors and as such care should be taken to ensure they don't snap to roads.

  • Park & Ride Lots are mapped at the fence line, make sure the landmark does not snap to roads. Name these as "Park & Ride" only - no specific names as it would get too long. These lots should also have unnamed Parking Lot Roads in accordance with the information in Road Types wiki page. See the CT Landmarks To-Do page for a list of CT DOT Park & Ride locations that need to be added to the map or confirmed (for shape and location).
  • Pay Parking Lots (Private & Municipal) - Not mapped at this time, however, they are currently under discussion. This is possible POI situation, also need to test for the source of the |P| icon that appears when nearing destination.
