  1. One Speed Camera (or similar) for various segments/roads...

    Speed Cameras...

    Currently, when a speed camera is cataloged on the map, it only serves the way/segment in which one driver/Wazer travels, being placed in the direction of traffic, acknowledging its presence in the app about 500 meters before.

    However, there are access ways to the main road where that camera is located, access ways that are "within" the speed camera's angle of the main road and access ways where the speed camera does not "beep" because it is located in another street/road...

    At this moment, the only way to beep on the 2 lanes (or 3 or 4 lanes/streets/roads…

  2. Addition of a road type: Dangerous or Unsafe road

    It is suggested to add one more road type: Dangerous or Unsafe road. This type will be used for example when it is a very steep or winding or bumpy road, or a road on the edge of an abyss.
    The time it takes to pass the road in such cases is not the only parameter that counts.
    It is suggested that the "penalty" for passing such a road will be proportional to its length. For example 1 minute for every 100m.

  3. Need options for Unit/Apt/Space/Suite/Building numbers on addresses and RPPs

    I am seeing more and more large apartment/condominium/business complexes with multiple buildings all sharing one street address, and am more frequently getting URs about incorrect addresses because of it. Note, that the designation need to be alphanumeric.

  4. New WME Layer - Submitted Imagery

    Google-provided aerial imagery is very outdated in places, being at least 6 years old in the area I live. Even in more recent areas, there are new developments and intersections which have been built since. I suggest a way for experienced (lvl 3+?) editors to submit personal drone shots or publicly-available renderings of new developments to be added to a new layer on the map editor. This would make editing updated areas significantly more accurate, and provide a way to confirm the new developments before GPS traces are available. It would also make such imagery accessible to all map editors.

  5. Event with more than one other language

    At the moment it is only possible to enter an englisch and optional one other language name for an WME Event.
    Can this limit be increased for optional up to 4 or 5 names (including the englisch language)?

    That would be a gread addition for events that have official names for more than two languages, espiaclly in regions where boarders with more than one country or countrys which have multiple languages.

    As example for boarder regions:
    Belgium/Germany/Netherland
    Austria/Switzerland/Germany
    Austria/Hungary/Slovakia/Czech Republic

    As example for countrys with more than one local language:
    Luxemburg (2 languages + englisch)
    Switzerland (4 languages are spoken)…

  6. Show the source of an UR: app or livemap

    Users can now create URs from the livemap, at any location, while UR created via the app are automatically located at the actual position of the user.
    When handling an UR, it is useful to know if the UR has been created via the app, by a user actually present at the location, or via the livemap, which allows to create a UR at any location.
    Knowing the source helps analysing the UR.

  7. "View in Street View" button for places

    Added "View in Street View" button for places, similar to what update requests have.
    This request is motivated by the fact that, at times, Street View is not aligned with the segments and you have to go hunting for the point where it is available.

  8. Add closures to new segments

    It would be really great if we could add closures to segments just after creating them. Currently that's not possible. In this case, once the segments are built into the map, the closures would be added to them automatically

    Why?

    Sometimes city administrations make few changes in the traffic by creating new roads. The problem is that most of the times (at least where I live) we don't know exactly when those roads will be released. In addition, map build may delay.

    So, as soon as we know a new road will be built, we can create it on WME…

  9. Editing fuel types for each Gaz station in WME

    It would be nice if the types of fuel at Gas stations could be created, selected and sorted for each specific Gas station when editing directly in the WME.
    The main thing is that for each Gas station it was possible to create its own set of fuel types.
    For example:
    for one - Gas, 92, 95, Diesel
    for the other - 92, 95, 98, Diesel
    etc.

    Because all Gas stations are Different!!!

  10. Creating an traffic event from a RTC automatically

    Waze wants more traffic events additional to the RTC in order to benefit from the metadata.
    Adding a larger amount of traffic events as before needs exceptionally more time and effort.

    1. First, visiting the event tab and creating an event with name, duration etc.
    2. Adding the respective RTCs with again entering name and duration. 3.Again, going to the event tab and submitting the event.

    This is too much work to keep up in general.

    So solve this, I suggest the possibility to create an event from the closures tab automatically using the already submitted closure name and duration (as an…

  11. Livemap uses old Lat/Lon order

    When entering a lat/lon pair as starting point or destination in Livemap, it must be entered as Lon,Lat. WME was updated to copy as Lat,Lon. Livemap should be updated to match.

  12. Allow closure creation in "Current live map/snapshot" mode

    At the moment, it is no longer possible to add a closure to a segment you have removed or split up, even though this segment is still being used live in the app. If it were possible to add closures in the snapshot mode (recently renamed to "Current live map"), even with a strict time limit, our life would become a lot easier during road works.

    At the moment, we need to apply segment restrictions, wait for the map update, remove the closure, make our changes, wait for the map update and then probably add new closures. If we can…

  14. Improve editor and driver effectiveness by reconfiguring "Map issue" and "closure" app buttons

    Many drivers report temporary closures as map issues instead. This is very frustrating for us map editors! Temporary closures are extremely hard to diagnose, and often a waste of time to try, because many closures are already over by the time we see the reports. The fact that Waze under Apple CarPlay does not even provide access to the “Closure” feature has made the situation worse.

    Please reconfigure the app's reporting tree to make closures more intuitive. I suggest renaming "Map issue" to "Route issue" (in English, something similar in other languages). This is how drivers already seem to perceive…

  15. Only allow editing of road shield if you can edit the segment

    I know, and have no issues with, that if you add/change a road shield on a segment it will add/change the road shield to every segment with the same streetID (same street name, city, state, country combination) no matter where it is (even if you you don't have edit rights in the area)

    My issue is that I should not be able to go to an area, state, country that I have ZERO edit rights in and add/change their road shields.

    My suggestion is that when you select a segment, if you can't make a normal edit to that segment,…

    Hey,
    Thank you for this suggestion.

    Currently we won’t move forward with this suggestions as road-shields are assigned to streets and not to segments, which has higher benefit in the mapping process.

    If a user have editing rights to one of the segments on a street he/ she will be able to assign the road shield .

    Best,
    Hezi

    At this point in your directions, Johnson Ferry road turns right, and Abernathy Road is straight. but your directions should say to stay straight to Abernathy get to GA 400. If you stay on Johnson Ferry, you would not get to GA 400.

  17. Seasonal Roads

    In almost every climate, there is some time of seasonal weather condition that closes roads at least temporarily during a season.

    For example, in the winter, some municipalities will not plow certain roads where the roads are not servicing any addresses. These roads are legally open, but may not be passable by most vehicles except during periods of melt or the end of the season melt. In other areas, seasonal rains or snowmelt mean that dirt roads are impassible to most vehicles several days at a time due to mud, but are usable in drier spells during that season. Because…

  18. Allow un-checking Segments layer to be persistent

    When using Street Vector Layer I turn off the Segments layer but each time a hard refresh is required (which is far too often) the Segments layer is re-activated by default. Please allow the setting for the Segments layer to be persistent.

  20. Improve segment selection on mobile

    Hello,

    Could you improve the segment selection on Mobile and Tablet?
    The selection of a segment is already not easy ...
    This could be good in addition to being able to easily select several segments, or multi selection, on mobile and tablet.

    For example, very useful for urgent closure requests made without a permalink and the Team Closure editor is not in front of a PC (and the editor providing the information is on the road at the same time).

    Best regards
