  1. Retroalimentación para usuarios.

    Saludos.
    Considero interesante la posibilidad de comunicar a los usuarios que agregan lugares, fotos y sugerencias, el poder poner en su conocimiento la razón por la cual el editor no aprobó su su lugar, foto o sugerencia.
    Gracias

  2. Bilingual

    Hello. Is it possible that in the future, the names of cities may also be displayed alphabetically (Roman, Cyrillic, Chinese, etc.) to which I installed the application on the device?

  3. Increase Map Editor Feed filter capacity

    I would find very useful to have available in the "Feed" of the editor the posibility of filtering, at least, per "Country".

  4. Hyphenated house numbers

    The Waze Map Editor should add support for addresses with hyphenated house numbers like most of the addresses in Queens. Without hyphenation, addressing is less accurate than it should be.

  5. Multilingual street names

    Add the capability to add translations to street names so people who speak different/foreign languages can use the map. EX: In Israel, Google Maps has Anglicized street names, while Waze does not. As a result, the English-speaking voice in Waze cannot recite street names in Waze.

    This feature would be of great use in NYC and other cities where there are plenty of ESL speakers and people who have very limited understandings of English. Spanish would be a great language to start with.

  6. Suite/floor numbers

    Add the ability for editors to add suite and/or floor numbers for establishments. This feature would be especially useful in NYC and other cities with lots of mixed-use development.

  7. Automatic flag on unused places

    Many places in the WME are not used for various reasons: The place was closed or moved, the place was created for an event that has passed, the place was wrongly created, the place exists but nobody uses it for routing. During the years, the number of such "garbage" places is growing, and will continue to grow forever.
    There must be some way of cleaning these places from the map.
    It is suggested that every place (excluding RPP and natural features) that nobody set it as a destination for 15 months, will be automatically flagged, with a reason that the…

  8. Multiple sets of hours

    Add the capability for editors to add multiple sets of hours for an establishment. This feature would be especially beneficial for banks and pharmacies. At banks, ATMs are often open 24/7, while human tellers, consultants, notaries, and other banking personnel are not at banks 24/7. At pharmacies, the convenience store and the pharmacy itself mostly have different hours. Finally, there are some establishments with delivery hours and/or drive-thru hours that differ from the establishment's standard operating hours.

  9. Google Local

    The Waze Map Editor should permit editors to pull place descriptions from Google Local Guides since Google acquired Waze. Waze already permits editors to use Street View info. Also, Google Local Guides is a crowdsourced project, just like Waze.

  10. School zone

    Ability to replace school zones, and online through the map editor to establish the school zone times. Allowing the mapping software to reroute out of a school zone . The ability to skip out of school zones like we do with toll roads.

  11. Inclusão de várias faixas por sentido

    Poder informar a quantidade de pistas em cada sentido, alterando consequentemente a largura do traçado exibido no WME e no APP. Essa informação poderia ser útil também para futuras inclusões de faixas exclusivas para ônibus, ou ciclovias.

  12. RESPOSTA MAPA EDITOR

    Antes da última atualização, quando o usuário reportava um erro no mapa, recebia uma mensagem na caixa de mensagens no app e era possível responder ao questionamento do editor rapidamente, dentro do app.

    Agora o usuário recebe um email com um link para entrar no site, muito mais complicado

    Sugiro que as notificações e respostas de erros no mapas sejam novamente realizadas dentro da caixa de mensagens do app. Muito mais prático!

  13. add deny last modifications on edits and lock user liké first 10 edits

    When we made modifications, add the ability to remove the edit, for exemple, an editor that does'nt came for a while doesn't know about new editing rules and made errors, if another find it, he could cancel the change, if there is more than 10% of the last 100 edit are refusée, then the user should need to pass 10 new validation before auto submitting...
    That just need to be able on the 100 last updates or 30 last days

  14. Unlimited Sign for Germany

    Hello,

    in Germany, we have no speed limit on many roads. At the moment we do not enter a limit on roads without a speed limit. However, this often leads to confusion, because users do not know if a speed limit was not entered for a segment or if there is no speed limit on this segment.

    It would be great if there was a possibility to enter a "unlimited sign" for Segments without a speed limit!

    For example, you could simply insert a symbol like this "/" into the speed field in WME and in the Waze-App users get…

  15. A true support for bilingual countries

    I noticed that Waze doesn't approach bilingual countries just like GMM does.
    For example, in GMM, we can write multiple names for the same road in 2 different languages and based on the user's current phone language chosen, the map changes accordingly.
    Unfortunately that doesn't happen in Waze, we are stuck in 1 language only, even if we add "Alternative" name.

    Here in Kuwait, we use both Arabic and English (Even street signs are written in both Arabic and English) , in Google Maps we are having no problems since most of the roads in the map are written in…

  16. Waze needs Public Toilets

    Waze app and map editor needs a new type of place: public toilet. Existing toilet attribute of the other places is not applicable to dedicated public toilets available in many large cities. Toilet place could be added into Professional and Public category. Preferably it would have some specific attributes like genders allowed or suitable, services (urinal, toilet seat, babycare table), price, wheelchair accessible, etc. but even just having the public toilet place available in the menu would be great starting point. Most often it would be a point place but somewhere in the world may exist area toilet places as…

  17. Temporary Speed Limits for construction

    Allow editors to set Temporary Speed limits, similar to a closing, that will time out to the default, road set limit, after the time period has lapsed. It would be able to be set for the same time period as the closure, if desired, or during events, if necessary.

  18. Map Editor - Change level restrictions/level tiers

    Hi,

    Currently many roads cannot be modified by level 1 editors(my case), in some cases you need even level 4 for highways. So when voluntier senior editors cannot be as active as they were in the past the maps are getting less precise time by time, and issues are not fixed/replied as soon as we would like.
    The solution then is to grow our level but... for a level 4 I need 250,000 editions! This number is even more difficult to reach when an area is well completed and the only changes requested are to keep it updated.

    In this…

  19. Automatic forum login when in WME.

    Recommend that whenever a user logs into WME Production then they automatically get their forum account opened. You use the same user name and password.

    This way editors don't have to catch a new editor's attention in WME chat or via a UR or "red roads".

    Since the feed shows that you have a new PM when in WME this would seem to be a logical next step.

  20. For PPs and APs, Open Hours add the option of Sunrise to Sunset. This is true for many parks and public places.

    For Place Points and Area Points, Open Hours add the option of Sunrise to Sunset. This is true for many parks and public places.
