Ángulo

Hay tres tipos diferentes de ángulos:

Área de Edición (Editable Area)

Distancia definida alrededor de las conducciones que has efectuado con Waze encendido en las que tienes derechos para editar los objetos no bloqueados. Ver Área de Edición para más información.

ASR

Sistema de reconocimiento de voz (del inglés: Automatic Speech Recognition, reconocimiento automático del habla). Capacidad de un teléfono inteligente de convertir las instrucciones de voz del usuario en acciones en el dispositivo

BGS - Gran Señal Verde (Big Green Sign)

Una gran señal verde es la señal de carretera estándar en los Estados Unidos para salidas y otra información.

Pequeños iconos en forma de caramelo que aparecen en la aplicación cliente Waze. Al pasar por encima de ellos nos dan los puntos asociados. Ver Road candies para mayor información.

Carpool, carpool lane

A vehicle with 2 or more occupants. Also known as HOV Lanes and Transit Lanes, are lanes restricted for the use of cars carrying a specified number of occupants. See Carpool lanes for more information.

CDP - Census Designated Place

A United States Census Bureau term for a concentration of population that lack a separate municipal government, but otherwise resemble incorporated places. It is sometimes added to a city name with that classification if there are multiple cities in the same state with that name.

Central reservation

Strip of land or barrier separating a dual carriageway. Also known as a median.

Cookie munching, cookies

Cookies are the dots on unconfirmed roads (sometimes called pacman roads). Cookie munching (or road munching) is driving over such roads and earns points. It also confirms the road is drivable for the Waze server. See What are those dots... for more information.

Dead-end node

Segments Nodes Junctions.png
This is an endpoint node found at the end of a segment without another segment connected to its end, when the other endpoint node of the segment is connected to one or more other segments.

Divided highway

See dual carriageway

Dual carriageway

A road or highway in which the two directions of traffic are separated by a barrier, strip of land, or other obstruction (known as a central reservation or median). In Waze, such roads may be represented by parallel segments, one for each direction, but this should only be done under certain specific conditions.

Endpoint node

Segments Nodes Junctions.png
Also called an end node is found at both ends of a segment, is visible only after selecting a segment while in WME, and when joined to other endpoint nodes create a junction.

Error de Mapa (Map issue)

Botón en la aplicación Waze para indicar que hay un problema en el mapa. Ver Update Requests para más información.

ETA

Abreviación de Hora estimada de llegada (del inglés: Estimated Time of Arrival). Durante un tiempo se españolizó como HEA (hora estimada de arribo), para posteriormente aprobarse la utilización del estándar internacional ETA.

Express lane

See HOV

Freeway

Autopista, Autovía. Tipo de vía utilizado en Waze para el sistema de de carreteras más importante en tu país. Consulta la guía de tu país para más información.

Geometria (Geometry)

Es el diseño o forma de un segmento. Cada vía se compone de uno o más segmentos. Los segmentos se forman con una o más secciones de líneas rectas. Estas secciones pueden ser cortas, lo que permite que se creen curvas en un segmento. Ver Editing existing roads para más información.

Geometry node

Segments Nodes Junctions.png
Segment geometry node
Landmark geometry node
When editing a segment or Area Place, large white circles appear where the segment changes direction ultimately altering its shape. Click and drag them individually to alter the geometry of the segment or landmark. Press the d key while the mouse is hovered over them to delete the geometry node. Alternately hold the d key and then move the mouse over the nodes you want to delete.
Segment intergeometry node.png
Landmark intergeometry node.png
The smaller white circles between the geometry nodes are "inter"-geometry nodes. When you click and drag an inter-geometry node, it becomes a larger geometry node and two more inter-geometry nodes appear halfway between each side again.
See Editing existing roads for more information.

GPS - Global Positioning System

Sistema de posicionamiento global (del inglés: Global Positioning System). Es un sistema de posicionamiento basado en satélites que utilizan los dispositivos de navegación para localizar el dispositivo en cualquier lugar del globo. Aplicaciones como Waze usan esta información para ofrecer navegación guiada con instrucciones giro a giro.

Grade

The level or elevation of a road with respect to surrounding roads. So a road would normally be at level grade. A road going underneath in a tunnel would be a -1 grade. A road going over would be a +1 grade. At complicated junctions such as freeway interchanges there can be many levels. So on a flat map we assign levels to show that while the roads cross, they do not connect because they are at different heights or elevations. See At-grade connectors for more information.

HOV, HOV Lane - High Occupancy Vehicle

A vehicle with 2 or more occupants. HOV Lanes, also known as Carpool Lanes and Transit Lanes, are lanes restricted for the use of cars carrying a specified number of occupants. See Carpool lanes for more information.

IGN

Editors paid by Waze to make updates to the map. See IGN for more information.

IL

Israel. Standard two-letter ISO code, which also refers to the routing and editor infrastructures which is distinct from Rest Of World and North America.
Illinois. Standard postal code for the state of Illinois in North America.

Inter-geometry node

Segment intergeometry node.png
Landmark intergeometry node.png
A "grab handle" that allows you to create a new geometry node. When you drag an inter-geometry node, it bends the segment at that point; when you release it, the inter-geometry node has become a new geometry node.
Inter-geometry nodes appear on road segments and area places (landmarks). They will only appear when the segment/place is selected and the mouse is hovering over it. They appear midway between each existing pair of adjacent geometry nodes, alloeing you to bend the shape midway between existing bends. In the case of segments, they also appear midway between the endpoints and the first existing geometry node, or, if there are no existing geometry nodes, midway in the segment.

Intl or INTL - International

International abbreviation used to refer to the non-North America server infrastructure and location. See also #ROW

Level

May refers to road elevation or the WME Zoom Control. See Level for other similar uses of the term.

Map tile, tile

The Waze map is divided into a grid using 1km-square areas which are called tiles or map tiles. Changes to the map are processed on a per-tile basis. Changes to any part of a map tile causes Waze to mark the tile as changed and it will be rebuilt in the next map update cycle.

Median, median barrier

Strip of land or barrier separating a divided highway or motorway. Also known as a central reservation. See Dual carriageway.

Motorway

Freeway; the major road system in your country

Munching

Driving over roads which have not previously been driven (pacman roads). See cookie munching for more information.

NA - North America

Abbreviation used for the servers that cover the USA and Canada maps. It does not include Mexico.

nanoRep

The automated support system managed by Waze directly. It provides information and basic troubleshooting information on Waze. It may have newer information not yet updated in the Wiki. See the nanoRep support site for answers to Waze questions.

Node

Segments Nodes Junctions.png
There are five different types of nodes:

Origin

Starting point for a driving route, with the destination being the ending point.

Pacman roads

Unconfirmed roads marked with dots (cookies) that have not been driven upon since being created or significantly edited in the Waze Map Editor. Driving over these roads earns you points and turns your car icon into a Pacman-type character that "munches the dots." See cookie munching for more information.

Pathfinder

See Wayfinder

PermaLink, PL

A browser link (http://...) that shows the map with the same view as the user who created the PermaLink. Location, zoom, layers, and selected segments will be the same. You can find the icon for the PermaLink in the lower right corner of the WME screen (two chains linked together). When the mouse is hovered over the icon, press Control-C to copy the PermaLink to the clipboard or right-click it and choose copy). You can then paste the PL into an e-mail or forum message so others can access what you are seeing.
Note that you should not copy the URL form the browser address bar as a PermaLink, as it does not change as you work on the screen. The PermaLink icon always has the current PermaLink. You can also click the PermaLink icon to completely reload your current window without changing the view.

PLR

Abbreviation for Parking Lot Road.

PM, Private Message

Every Waze user has a personal mail account inside the Waze forums for the purpose of communicating with each other. See Private message for more information.

Pothole

Also called a kettle or chuckhole, is a type of disruption in the surface of a roadway where a portion of the road material has broken away, leaving a hole.

Punto de Unión (Junction)

Segments Nodes Junctions.png
Junction normal.png
Un punto de unión es un punto de conexión entre dos segmentos o más, que te permite ejecutar acciones sobre todos los segmentos que están conectados al mismo. A veces se les llama 'nodos', pero no deben confundirse con los nodos geográficos.
Los Puntos de Unión se ven diferentes según su situación:
Junction selected.png Seleccionado y editable
Junction uneditable.png Seleccionado y editable (sin permisos para cambiarlo debido a bloqueo)
Junction unsaved.png Cambiado, todavía no guardado
Ver Junction Style Guide para más información.
Al final de las calles sin salida, debe verse un punto de unión. Arréglalo si no fuera así.

Ramp

A freeway entrance or exit; sliproad. Ramps may be on-ramps or off-ramps. Ramps used to connect roads at a different grade from the connecting road or freeway. See ramp road type and Junction Style Guide for more information.

Rank

Generally refers to Map Editing Rank or road lock ranks. See Level for other related terms.

RevCon

See Reverse Connectivity.

Revcon

Revcon or RevCon is short for "reverse connectivity" described immediately below.

Reverse connectivity

Reverse connectivity (or reverse connection) is a situation where a hidden turn is allowed going the wrong direction into a one-way street (against traffic), or leading the wrong direction out of a one-way street. The term is often abbreviated "revcon" or "RevCon." For more details see topic Reverse connectivity.

Road munching

Earning points by driving over roads (distance traveled). See cookie munching.

ROW

Rest Of World. One of the three separate sets of servers (infrastructure) containing Waze mapping and navigation systems. The three are Israel, North America (Canada and United States only), and the "Rest of the World," (ROW) or simply, "World." Note that Mexico is part of the ROW infrastructure, not North America.
ROW contains everything not in the dedicated infrastructure for the other two. It includes all of Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, Mexico, New Zealand, South and Central America, and many island countries and territories.
All editing, driving, and reporting must take place on the correct server. This usually happens automatically, except for the editor, where switching to a specific destination may prompt you to change infrastructure.

Segmento (Segment)

Segments Nodes Junctions.png
Los segmentos son las unidades más pequeñas por las que están constituidas las carreteras. Básicamente, son los trozos que hay entre dos puntos de unión. Para mayor información ver Crear un segmento en la Guía Rápida de Edición de Mapas

SelfCon

See Self Connectivity.

Self Connectivity

A segment is defined in the Waze database as having a connection, via a junction, back to itself. That can cause routing irregularities, but also may be the future of how to define a u-turn. As of today, self connectivity is not desirable. Tools such as the Color Highlighting userscript can help identify this situation.

Sentido Directionality

Indica si un segmento es de sentido único o de doble sentido.

Sliproad

A motorway entrance or exit; a ramp. Sliproads are often at a different grade from the connecting road or motorway

Smudged city

A map problem that shows cities on the map in places they should not be, or unnecessarily duplicated. See the Smudged city topic for more information.

Solicitud de Actualización (UR) (Update Request)

Una Solicitud de Actualización (UR), es un Error de Mapa informado por un usuario desde la aplicación Waze. También es una capa en el Editor de Mapas de Waze. Ver update requests para más información.

TBTR

Time-Based Turn Restriction. See partial restrictions.

TBSR

Time-Based Segment Restriction. See partial restrictions.

Time-based, or time restricted

When a turn is restricted (or a road) based on the time of day, it is often referred to as a time restricted turn or a time-based turn restriction.

Traffic lock

See article traffic lock.

Transit lane

Also known as Carpool Lanes and HOV Lanes, are lanes restricted for the use of cars carrying a specified number of occupants. See Carpool lanes for more information.

TTS

Sistema de síntesis de voz capaz de leer el texto escrito (del inglés: Text-to-speech) - La aplicación Waze utiliza este sistema para incluir los nombres de las calles en las instrucciones habladas de Navegación. No todas las voces de Waze usan este sistema. Las voces sin TTS nos dan instrucciones, pero no incluyen nombres de calles.

Voice

Spoken navigation instructions. The Waze app can support several voices for each geographic location, which have different qualities (language, male or female, supports TTS or not, pitch and other sound characteristics). For example, in North America, the primary voices are Samantha and Tom, which are both English voices supporting TTS. Most voices have a "human" name associated with them, but not all, and some have novelty names, such as "Boy Band." Waze occasionally provides celebrity voices, such as Kevin Hart in late 2013.

Wayfinder

Road segments designed to give instructions that Waze would otherwise not give to drivers. This is often done where the default instructions might confuse the driver, or fail to make a correct maneuver. Wayfinders almost always occur at a fork, and use short extra segments, differing road types, specially-named segments, or all three to accomplish their goals.
Wayfinders may be used for exit-only lanes, multiple road branches, turn instructions needed where exit ramps transition to local streets or other highways, or to avoid accidentally taking any of the above. It is a complex topic, and relies on in-depth understanding of Waze's standard rules for generating instructions. See the See Junction Style Guide for more information.

Wazer

Usuario de la aplicación Waze

WME

Editor de Mapas de Waze (del inglés: Waze Map Editor), es la interfaz Web utilizada para actualizar los datos de los mapas de Waze.

WMECH

Abbreviation for Waze Map Editor Color Highlights. See WME Colour Highlights for more information.

World

Short for "Rest of World;" see ROW
