New York/Special roads/Main

From waze
Jump to: navigation, search



In New York if a Non-drivable road has a name and addresses (house numbers) on it, then it should be mapped, but not connected to the drivable road network. This will allow Waze to navigate to those house numbers, and the route will stop on the drivable segment nearest the address pin. The address pin will display on the map in the correct location.

State specific special road guidelines

The following special roads are managed slightly uniquely in some states and territories.

Parking Lot Roads

This state uses the following national standard guidelines found in the Wiki for Parking Lot Roads.

Alleys

This state uses the following unique guidelines for mapping alleys.

  • Alleys should always be mapped if they have a name.
  • Alleys should always be mapped if they are the sole access to a home or business.
  • Alleys should always be set to "Private"
  • Alleys are normally mapped if they are acknowledged by the municipality.

If an alley does not meet the above criteria, mapping is optional. Leave the name field blank.

Be careful adding alleys which will be closer to the destination pins for house numbers, or from Google, as this can cause all navigation to all the addresses on that block to route onto the alley instead. It may be better not to map these alleys, or you may have to adjust all the address pins to be closer to the actual roads.

Dirt roads

This state uses the following national standard guidelines found in the Wiki for Dirt Roads.
