Draft Military Installations Update
Military Installations and DoD Facilities
The United States Military has installations and facilities located throughout our Nation to train and support our Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard personnel. The DoD has two general classes of facilities. The first are Posts, Bases, and other Facilities that are gated and geographically distinct from their surrounding communities. The second type of DoD facility is Training complexes, Airfields, schoolhouses and offices that are located within our communities. This wiki is intended for use for 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 Installations stationed Outside the Continental United States (OCONUS).
All roads within the confines of the gated fenceline of a Military Installation should have the official name of the base/post as the 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. Some DoD Training centers, facilities, and offices use a City address and street names for their designation. Use the address and street names as posted on the facilities and as published by the Public Affairs Offices (PAO) of that facility's command.
Approved abbreviations are:
Prefixes that are not abbreviated:
While road treatment is covered here, gates should be set to private road going into the gate and / going out of the gate.
Most roads within a base 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. For those large bases in the western part of the US, is allowed.
Typically, bases east of the Mississippi River are not big enough for. 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 .
Most military bases do not need an area placed around them. 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.

The reasoning behind these are a person who is hungry and searches for "Burger King" will get the closest one to them. The closest may be on a military base which they don't have access to.
