  1. "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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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!!!

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  14. New Description for Retirement/Nursing Homes

    When editing the map and adding/editing places, it would be helpful if we could have a category for Nursing/Retirement Homes and Senior Centers. The number of seniors continues to grow, and having this category available would be a nice addition.

  15. Update UR Categories the same as the App

    Would like to match app problem descriptions with those presented in WME URs.

    For example: UR's that come in for 'Wrong Driving Directions' (what the App says)
    Show in WME as 'Improper / Poor navigation instruction'

    Having that changed to 'Wrong Driving Directions' will help with editors looking at responses and what to select for a default/1st response to a user.

  16. Different closure types for emergency vehicles

    There can be roughly two types of closures on roads. One is that the road is completely closed and driving is absolutely not possible. That's what we have now. Second possible situation is "soft closure", where although the road is publicly closed, some vehicles could still pass because the road itself is drivable.

    "Soft closure" can be an event closure like a festival or VIP visit or something else similar, where an emergency vehicle could drive through in case of an emergency. Such soft closures should not close the road completely, but add a small penalty instead, because you can't…

  17. Parking Lot Roads - Differentiate Aisles & Roads

    It would be nice to have a way of setting PLRs to be able to use speed data (versus a set speed) while having the same penalty settings (i.e., the road has no penalty between the two PLR settings). This would be useful in large parking lots area such as sporting venues and malls, where set speed is fine for aisles and minor roads but speed data would be useful for finding the fastest entrance/exit on it's higher volume roads. With the set PLR speed, you are almost always getting the shortest route of PLRs, even if that lot exit…

    Hey !

    Can you please share some more details and examples for this issue which you would like to address in this suggestion?
    This will help us to better understand what will be the best solution.

    Thank you

  18. Work closer with scripters

    Develop a closer working relationship with scripters. They provide great tools that make the time we can devote to editing far more productive - UNTIL the scripts are broken when WME is updated. When possible incorporate script functionality into native code.

  19. Display state instead of country when zoomed out

    If a country uses states then when between zoom levels 5/6 to 10 it should say the state name rather than country name. Once you are zoomed out past level 5 or 6 then it should start saying the country name.

    E.g. More useful to know I am looking at Queensland instead of Australia at this zoom level

    But more useful to know I'm looking at Australia at this zoom level

  20. Draw City Boundaries More Accurately

    Currently City Boundary layers are not drawn precisely, which can result in the wrong city name being displayed to users in the app. I continue to get URs on this regularly in my area.
    This issue seems to be seen commonly when cities are divided by an undulating river. Users should not be shown that they are in a city that they are not in. The system to "draw" the city layer should rely on more data points to draw a more accurate city layer. I will attach screenshots to show this more clearly.
