  1. Remove false city names from UK WME database

    Following the mass import of data for 3 ad campaigns (McDonald's, M&S, Aldi) by the Ads / Geo-ops teams the UK map is now littered with false or incorrect city names. These must be removed from the map immediately as they are NOT city names and should not exist.

    The UK Champs have asked privately for this to be done but for some reason this request needs to be public.

    This is NOT a change to UK mapping, this is simply following common sense that Counties should never be used as a city name and fake city names should not…

  2. Use of alternate city names for routing

    Several years ago the decision was made to use the postal city as an alternate city name for routing to addresses in rural areas. According to Wazeopedia "Waze founder and CTO Ehud stated in a US meetup that a search algorithm is so much work to build correctly and maintain, that Waze does not want to spend the time, money or energy to build their own, and are happy to stack the Waze matching process on top of the Google search algorithm." As a result, WME editors have spent untold time and energy adding the postal cities to these segments.…

  3. Speed limit update requests to Production in ROW

    Given that the appearance of SLURs has now calmed down I would like to make a proposal to move SLURs from beta to production editor.

    There are, however, two questions to everyone in ROW:
    1) can you reports SLs from app? New SLURs pop up from time to time, but I haven't been able to make one myself;
    2) would you like to bring all previous SLURs to prod or have a reset and make a fresh start? My vote goes to "bring everything to prod", because the current amount and appearance of new ones is manageable.

    Hey!
    Thank you for this suggestion.

    As it was announced in the forum we are currently working on improving the SLUR workflow and user experience.
    This suggestion will be taken into consideration in the work.

    So, thank you again we will update accordingly.

  4. Move closures history to the Closures tab

    Move the information about the closures history of a segment from the General to the Closures tab. This way the closures information won't interfere with important segment changes history and it will be easy to look the specific information. The "last date" will then be correct for each of them - segment changes and closure changes. Also, being in the Closures tab will allow for more data about the closure to be included (incorporating Script features - URO+ or the new WME History Enhancer).

  5. Fill place data with linked Google place data if those are blank in WME

    I often create a place and link Google place to it first to see/verify the address etc. Feels like very dumb double work when at least the name/city/address is in that linked Google place already, it would be very nice if WME could pull those from that entry when linking it and autofill those IF the corresponding fields are empty in place properties. And of course those must remain editable after that also.

  6. Increase the number of things that can be modified at country management level.

    For example each of the road types creation, could be limited to an editor of a certain level.
    Similarly, the walking tracks, railroads, cameras, etc.

  7. Editing permissions - change request

    I suggest to chane some editing pernissions as follows (the current required level is given in parenthisis):

    1. Giving a "narrow street" road type to a segment: 3 (1)
    2. Entering a TBR / TBTR (this includes difficult turn and toll road designation): 3 (1)
    3. Enter a turn instruction override: 3 (1)
    4. Delete a segment that someone else created: 3 (2)
    5. Create a new MTE: 4 (1)
    6. View RTC details (view only): 1 (4)
    7. View of house numbers: 1 (2)

  8. Apply lane name by clicking "enter"

    When typing the name of the way in the correct field, allow clicking on "enter" the name of the way to be applied. As it was before the separate alias field update.

  9. Modify the display when showing history of Turn Guidance

    When checking the history of changes to turn guidance, the side panel is too narrow to display the Turn Guidance image (both before and after images)
    The box for displaying the arrow takes up half the width (although the proportions are consistent with how its displayed) we don't need that much space used when checking the history.

    I am not sure what other changes might be possible, maybe also providing the text fields as text (it would allow us to see if the change was with information in the text field.

  10. 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.

  11. Combine HNs and RPPs with best features of each

    Combine HNs and RPPs with the best features of each. The current system of two different ways of showing house number, plus the need to change modes for HNs, is time-consuming and counter-productive. They need to be combined with capabilities such as interpolation, use on any type of road and searchability on all.

  12. Allow applying A->B closures on B->A segments (and vice versa)

    When selecting a one-way segment with a closure, and another segment without a closure, it is currently possible to select "Apply on all" to extend the closure to the second segment.

    This only works if the second segment has the same one-way direction of the first segment.

    When a segment with an A->B/B->A closure is selected, add a new option "Apply closure in any direction", which applies the currently selected closure as "both" on all additional selected segments.

  13. WME Road Types

    The current classification of roads on the WME follows the road types in the USA (Freeway, Major and Minor Highways and other road types).
    In Europe, but I think also in other parts of the world, the classification of roads is very different. This creates problems with editing roads, as it is difficult to adapt the WME type to the real situation.
    It is necessary to revise the road classification of the WME according to the real classification of each country so that each country can edit the map in a correct and more real way.

  15. Make Pedestrian Boardwalk / Non-routable Pedestrian Path the default pedestrian segment type

    As the map matures and junior editors look for ways to contribute to the map that is increasingly locked down, I am seeing a lot more use of the pedestrian segment types. The overwhelming majority are entered as Walking Trail (Routable Pedestrian Path) as these editors do not understand the implications this has on routing. As the vast majority of cases for pedestrian segment types calls for non-routable paths, I would like to see newly created pedestrian segments start out as Pedestrian Boardwalk instead of Walking Trail.

  16. Allow hyphenated house numbers in RPPs

    In my AM in Iowa there are several neighborhoods that have hyphenated house numbers. Here's an example: https://beta.waze.com/editor?env=usa&lat=42.40782&lon=-91.76381&zoom=6 Since they are on a private road RPPs should be used but can't be because hyphens are not permitted.

  17. RTC : ability to add them on current tiles

    Hi,
    the real time closure have a problem :

    We put them in WME and WME validates them according to their current state in database. But they apply on livemap.

    Imagine I have a street that is A->B. Then they decide to reverse it. So it is now saved B->A.

    In WME I have B->A
    In livemap I still have A->B until tiles update.

    To avoid routing people A->B, it would be nice to add a closure, but WME refuse since it thinks the road is in opposite direction.

    It would be nice if WME could accept it by really…

  18. Remove RS update location on https://www.waze.com/fr/user/editor/*

    Since RS are in wme, on the editor page those edition are link to 0,0 position.
    Would it be possible to improve the visualization of these editions because it affects the readability of the map?

  19. Add closures provides by a partner feed to the history of a segment

    Closures placed with WME can be traced back in the WME because they are added to the history of the segment. Closures provided by partner feeds are not added to the history. Adding them to the segment history makes it easier for the editors to find solutions for URs.
