Does anyone know where that list of names came from and why they are different from the naming that you can find on every other map?
This list is based on the Belgium post list. We customised it at some points.
If you look as example for Beveren-leie in gmaps, you won't find it. On gmaps it's Beveren, Warengem. So your statement is incorrect. Belgium post has à nice and complete list. No double names that can give problems. So with this list everybody knows what cityname to use...you can use zipcode instead of cityname to find out the correct cityname, etc.....
I'd still have to disagree though, it's not that i want to be annoying or anything
but i do believe that the only valid name should be the one thats on the streetsigns as well google street view
So when you see a streetsign waze should show the same cityname.
There is also a Beveren (Roeselare) in the list of city names, that one is correct though street view beveren roeselare
So if its the parent city you want to show it should be Beveren-Leie (Waregem)
