[Page Update] House Numbers in WME

Postby nzahn1 » Mon Aug 21, 2017 3:03 pm

This is a factual update, to bring the HN page current with the best available info as confirmed by staff and champs.

:arrow: Proposed changes: User:Nzahn1/House_Numbers_in_WME (updated link 2017-08-21 12:13 ET)

One old item was removed, and three new sections or subsections were added:

  • House numbers vs residential point places
  • Address search hierarchy
  • Interpolation
I'd appreciate any feedback on wordsmithing or formating.

Looks good, three recommendations:

1) Line 20 in comparison view. Recommend "Addresses in an Area place or a Point place are cosmetic only and not used for address search like Residential Point Places." vice
"Standard (not residential) Waze Place addresses" are cosmetic only, and not used for address search.

2) Add a section that HNs can have multiple street names and/or city names as alt names while RPP can only have one street and city name combination per RPP.

3) Waze HN Interpolation will be to the named road segment vice the Google map interpolation to the nearest segment even if not accessible on the named road segment. (ex last house on a court might be the street over).

In other areas on your page I made some changes,

removed GMM since it is gone and just said Google Maps

changed wording to residential point Places to be consistent with what you said.

For the Markers section - should we state to add a residential point Place vice a HN? The current guidance is to put PP or AP (as appropriate) but if someone searches for the address it won't use the cosmetic address in the PP or AP.

Note that these are changes to existing sections of the wiki beyond the scope of my initial proposal, but they seem good to me.

I thought I heard this weekend that guidance was to prefer HNs over RPPs for now?

I've incorporated subs5's suggestions, and have done some page-wide changes to capitalization of non-proper nouns.

Good question but that was where the HNs work and you could use either HN or RPP.

In the Marker section it states the anchored HN doesn't work for routing when actual address is through many PLRs. Currently states to use AP or PP. Those options don't work for address search since just cosmetic use of the address. So putting in a RPP would allow users searching by address to be properly routed.

What is the acceptable format for alphabetical HNs? Is it 1234A, 1234-A, 1234#A, 1234 A (with a space)? Since this is now a USA page, it's best to clarify it.

Only the 1234A and 1234 A formats are allowed. 1234-A and 1234#A are not allowed, easy enough to try in the editor.

The 1234-A gives an error that states unsupported format.
The 1234#A won't even allow the # to be put into the HN bubble.

Also 1234 1/2 is not allowed for HNs, in case you were wondering; also gives an error that states unsupported format.

Nick,

I read through the proposed changes and the information looks good to me. The only thing to note and it may very well be personal opinion, is the lack of title casing when stating House Numbers and Residential Place Points. I’m definitely no English major but they are identified as “RPP” and “HN” so to me “residential point Places”, “residential Point Places”, and simply “house numbers” doesn’t quite look correct. Otherwise if keeping sentence case, there are still a few places to make the changes for page uniformity.
