We strongly encourage the use of WME Place Harmonization (WMEPH) to standardize place names and maximize completion of places in Idaho.

Do not inappropriately use external sources to complete places! Use the place's official website or personal observations at the location to complete fields.

Locking Standard

Incomplete Places

A place may be incomplete if it's lacking any of these essential components:

  1. Name
  2. Address (minimum of closest street, city, and state; full street address preferred)
  3. Website (where available)
  4. Phone number (where available)
  5. Services (when applicable)
  6. Hours (where available)

Normally, places lacking any of the above will not be locked. However, situations may occur where locking an incomplete place is appropriate*. Please do not lock incomplete places higher than Rank 2 without an Idaho State Manager or higher approval. The goal is to encourage all editors to be empowered to complete places.

*NOTE: When a place is locked at 1, Waze app users (even those that do not edit) are able to make edits without moderation once becoming Trusted Users. You are permitted to lock places at 2 if you have set place data that needs to be protected from changes by these users.

Completed Places

Once Completed (e.g. green in WMEPH, or blue when all available fields are entered accurately), places shall be locked to a minimum of Rank 3. These categories of places shall be locked to a minimum of Rank 4 unless an Idaho State Manager or higher makes exceptions:

  • Airports
  • Colleges, Schools, and Universities
  • Gas Stations
  • Hospitals
  • Military

Current Exceptions

Schools in Coeur d'Alene and Post Falls are allowed to be Rank 3 to be managed by @MatthewStarbuck.
