===Military Bases===
Most military bases do not need an area place to encompass the entire base. Smaller bases can have an area placed on it. If you can fit a large majority of the base into the screen at the 500' level, then it qualifies for an area. NOLF Imperial Point is an example of this type of setup. Make sure all roads in the area are created and treated just as any other road. If there is only one road in/out, the private gate does not need to be set up, as there is no need to restrict the general population as Waze will not route through the base unless the destination is in the base.

Draft Military Installations Update

Military Installations and DoD Facilities

The United States Military has installations and facilities located throughout the nation to train and support our Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard personnel serving in the Active Components, the Reserves, the National Guard, Veterans, and Retirees. The DoD has two general classes of facilities. The first consists of Posts, Bases, Camps and other military facilities that require DoD access authorization, are gated, fenced, and are geographically distinct from their surrounding communities. The second type is comprised of training complexes, airfields, schoolhouses and offices that are located within our communities. This wiki is intended to address Installations and Facilities located within the Continental United States (CONUS), its overseas states of Alaska and Hawaii, and the territories of Guam, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. Another Waze DoD Military installations wiki is under development for all other DoD Installation stationed Outside the Continental United States (OCONUS).

Naming

Road Segment's City Name

Primary Segment City Name

All road segments within the confines of the gated fenceline of a Military Installation should have the official name of the base/post as the City Name. This is often the Private Road (PR) segment.

Alternate Segment City Name

Some DoD training centers, facilities, and offices use a USPS City address and street name for their designation. Use the address and street name as they are posted on each facility and as published by facilities' Public Affairs Offices (PAO). These facilities should have the USPS City as the Alternate City Name.

Examples: Ft Knox, NS Mayport, NAS Jacksonville, NSB Kings Bay, Tinker AFB, Camp Pendleton, CGAS Houston, March ARB. City names should change at the gates, where the installation roads begin. Throughout this wiki, the terms "Base", "Post" and "Camp" are used interchangeably.

  • Camp - Army and Marine Installations
  • Depot - Army and Coast Guard Supply Depots
  • Light Station - Coast Guard Lighthouse Service
  • Roads

    Private Installations

    While road treatment is covered here, gates should be set to private road going into the gate and  Street / Primary Street  going out of the gate.

    500pxSTANDARD Gate treatment example. Note that this road is of a "primary" type but the private segment used for the inbound lane is used to prevent through-routing.

    Functional classification

    Most roads within a post are set to street.

    Bases are not set to functional classification per state guidelines as they all fall outside of state DoTs. For most military bases (especially in the eastern part of the US) the highest classification should be  Primary Street . For those large posts in the western part of the US,  Minor Highway  is allowed.

    Typically, posts east of the Mississippi River are not big enough for  Minor Highway .  Primary Street  should be the highest classification of road. Roads leading to/from gates can be classified at the higher level road. If a road is a high traffic road for the base, it can be classified as a  Primary Street .

    Gates

  • Gates can have Area Places over the gate and ID Security Inspection areas to denote the structures that are present. Area places also help the Waze algorithm understand delays that occur while entering the base (similar to a toll booth or a gas station).
  • Gates Restrictions and Hours go on the Private road segment as well as the segment leaving the base which is opposite the Private road. Please do not put hours on every segment involved in the gate structure. (This simplifies changes for OPSEC or holidays)
  • Gates which are permanently closed can be disconnected for an "air gap."
  • Gates should have a tiered locking system which works like this: The incoming Private road and one outgoing segment are locked at 5. Any adjoining segments connected to the L5 segments are locked at 4.
  • Places

    Military Bases

    Most military bases do not need an area place to encompass the entire base. Smaller posts can have an area placed on it. If you can fit a large majority of the base into the screen at the 500' level, then it qualifies for an area. NOLF Imperial Point is an example of this type of setup. Make sure all roads in the area are created and treated just as any other road. If there is only one road in/out, the private gate does not need to be set up, as there is no need to restrict the general population as Waze will not route through the base unless the destination is on the base.

    Place and Area Guidance generally follows the National Waze guidance for places. DoD-specific places are also listed here.

    Places Approved for Military Bases

    PHOTOS OF ANY KIND ARE NOT ALLOWED

    • Barber / Beauty Salon
    • Banks
    • Chain Stores (GNC, GameSpot, dry cleaners, etc)

    • School
    • Shopette with a Gas Station
    • Visitor Center

    Places Not Approved for Military Bases

    • Barracks
    • Hangars
    • Numbered buildings

    Add (*Post Name* access only) behind commonly named places, (i.e. Food/Chain, Post Office, Bank, Golf Course, etc), so that people without base access are warned when they do a search; Example: "GNC (Tinker AFB access only)".

    Additionally, The PAO and MWR of most posts publish criteria, instructions, unique websites, addresses and phones numbers for visitors to access their facilities. These descriptions can be found for Pass and ID centers, Visitor centers, Recreation facilities, Sportsman Hunting/Fishing Check-in points, Camp Sites, Range Control, Museums, and more. Place special instructions in the description field for those places. Some descriptions may simply read "DoD ID required for base access" or "Show ID", while others may provide short instructions to refer visitors to the websites and places they need to access to apply for a pre-background check for "Unescorted Installation Visitor or Contractor Access", hunting/fishing permits, etc. Then provide the website, address, phone number and hour of operation for that Place/Area. Example: The Ft Sill Visitor Control Center has its own website which differs from the main Ft Sill Website. In addition to the unique information for Visitor Center, the Description Field would read, "Visit the Ft Sill Website prior to your visit to access forms needed to apply for Post access http://sill-www.army.mil/vcc/"
