==== Overlapping {{Anchor|Area Places overlap}}====
Sometimes a large area place has smaller area places within it. Examples include different medical buildings within a hospital campus or separate malls within a large shopping complex. Smaller area polygons are shown on top of larger polygons. However, if the the colors of the places are the same, Waze will show only the names of the smaller area places but not their boundaries within the larger area. It may be a better approach to use point places for the components of a larger area place unless it is essential that the subset place names be visible. Future versions of the Waze client may render overlapping area places more usefully.
== Residential point place {{Anchor|Residential place points}} ==
Residential point places (RPPs) are used for when an address (residential address or business address) is not navigable from the main road. Houses that are on a private road or pipestem, businesses that have a vanity address on a major road (but their entrance is on another named lesser road), or businesses that are on parking lot roads within a shopping center are some examples.
RPPs:
## Click the '''Save''' button in the upper right corner of the grey toolbar
# Make sure a nearby segment has the '''exact same''' street and city name combination either as a primary name or an alternate name.
# If an existing saved house number's (HN) anchor position is >50 m away from the proposed position of a new RPP triangle, then the RPP will not save. Delete the HN and wait until the HN database updates (generally at least two [[Map tiles#Updates|tile updates]]) to retry saving this as an RPP. The proposed RPP can either be saved in the correct location as a point place (with name added, should be converted to RPP after HN update) or as an RPP within 50 m of the HN anchor location (should be moved to correct location after the HN update) with an entry point moved to the correct location. A [[map comment]] should be added here to both remind editors to fix it and to easily find the area again.|steps to create an RPP|nt=yes}}
{{mbox|type=important|text= RPPs will not be found in address search if they do not have a house number, street name, and city name. Additionally the '''exact''' street/city name combination must be specified on a nearby segment (primary or alternate name). If located on driveways or access roads other than the road specified in their address, they may not route correctly without an entry point.}}

Check regional guidance to see if such locations should be assigned a different category altogether.

Whatever the reason, Waze users should not be routed without warning to places that are not open for normal business. However, because Waze includes third-party searches can include results in searches for places, without a [[#External_providers|linked Waze place]], users may end up navigating to a third-party result with no way of knowing that from external providers which will not indicate if the place is not open or does not even existclosed. In the United States, the only external provider of Waze search results is Google Maps, and places that are either marked as {{Red|permanently closed}} in Google Maps do or linked to an existing Waze place will not appear in Waze search. Therefore, after confirming that a place is not open for business due to any of the above reasons, the following procedures procedure should be used:
