All Places added to the map must contain the following entries:

  • Proper Category
  • Place Name

  • Placed in the correct location on the map

This is the minimum acceptable amount of information for inclusion on the map.

Locking Standard

New Hampshire Place Lock Level Standards
PLACE TYPE LOCK LEVEL
Military Installation / Airport 4
Hospitals / Urgent Care / Police & Fire Dept 4
National & State Parks and Monuments 4
Gas Stations / Charging Stations 3
Schools / Universities / Colleges 3
Government Buildings / Consulates 3
Commuter Rail Stations 3
City and Local Parks 2


All Places that have complete information (to include, at a minimum, address/city, hours of operation, phone number) are to be locked at Level 2. This is to prevent loss of data due to automatic acceptance of Place Update submissions from Trusted Users, or Place Update Request approvals from other editors without careful examination.
If you do not have a high enough enough rank to lock the place as indicated, please lock it as high as you can, and notify a higher rank AM, SM, CM, or Champ to lock it higher.

Place Name Harmonization

In an effort to standardize Place Names, New Hampshire uses the following list of Common names. Please note the appropriate category name, as well as the listed spelling. This is necessary for the proper display of any advertising associated with the site (i.e. SUBWAY discounts)

Area Editing

Area Mapping
When creating an Area, map it to the "fence line" of the area.

For instance, if you are mapping a shopping center, this means that you map the area to cover the shopping center buildings, and the parking lots out to the outer ring road (if applicable). If there is no ring road, or for smaller shopping centers, map to the curb line.

If you are mapping a school, you would map out to the fence line (if visible) or to a reasonable distance from the school. Contact a AM, SM, CM, or Champ for assistance.

Hospitals / Urgent Care
Hospital Mapping
A special Category of Hospital / Medical Center is used for Hospitals, Medical Centers and Urgent Care facilities. ONLY Hospitals, Emergency Rooms, and places offering Urgent Medical Care should use this category. Clinics, and Medical offices which do not offer urgent medical care for Walk-Ins should use the Office, and any other appropriate category, instead.

Set the Stop Point over the Main Entrance to the facility. Additionally, map the Emergency Entrance with the same category name, but place it over the Emergency entrance location. ERs encompassed in a hospital Place Area should be Points, and named in the following fashion: E.R. - Hospital Name

Layered Areas

Places which are part of a larger encompassing place (i.e. place points for lot in a university area, Separate ER entrances in a hospital area, etc.) should be named with their unique name followed by a hyphen and the name of the larger area they belong to. For example "E.R. - Generic Medical Center"

Parking Lots

The Parking Lot Place marks a well-defined area constructed for off-street public parking, including parking structures and garages as well as at-grade lots. There are many elements that must be considered before deciding to map a parking lot. Currently, the details are covered in Places/Parking lot.

Unless you have permission from the State Manager, please only map the following types of parking lots:

  • Public parking lots (Indicate that they are public lots in the description)
  • Named lots around an arena/theater/venue (advise SM when you do these)
  • Park and Ride lots/structures
Gas Station
Gas Stations

You should familiarize yourself with the Gas Stations wiki - specifically naming, branding, and stop points.

Also understand, that to provide the best navigation instructions for a Wazer, u-turns should be enabled at each end of the PLR drawn through the gas station.

Cemeteries

Not mapped. Handled by POI Search. Those with historical significance can be mapped. Internal roads should be mapped using the Parking Lot Road type if roads are warranted.
