WORK IN PROGRESS - DO NOT USE AT THIS TIME

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.


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. NOTE: Gas Station Landmarks suppress Traffic Jams & Automatic System Detected Errors.

Toll booth

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

Terminal

Not used at this time. Not defined at this time.

Airport

Mapped at the fence line, include parking lots/terminals that are close to the airport in one landmark. Try to avoid crossing non-airport roads with the landmark.

Train station

Mapped at the fence line, including parking lot(s) in one landmark.

Bus Station / Bus Terminal

Mapped at the fence line, including parking lot(s) in one landmark.

Sea Port

Not Mapped.

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 "Commuter Lot" or "Park & Ride" only - no specific names as it would get too long. See official list at http://www.ct.gov/dot/cwp/view.asp?Q=259406&a=1390. This list will be added to the Connecticut To Do List so we can keep track of their addition to the map.
  • Pay Parking Lots (Private & Municipal) - currently under discussion - possible POI situation. Need to test the |P| icon that appears when nearing destination.

Please note that parking lots at businesses are not mapped.
