Introduction

Mapping resources

Before editing the maps in Maine, be sure to fully review and understand the editing manual.

The Waze user community follows the Waze etiquette guidelines discussed in the Wiki. Be sure to familiarize yourself with these guiding principals while editing the maps and this Wiki, as well as when communicating with other Waze users.


The following links can be helpful when editing the maps in Maine.
Add some generic USA mapping links while waiting for local editors to populate the page.


Community

People-in-forum.png

The Waze forum is a great place to find answers to previously asked questions and also a place to ask new ones. Below are links to the forums specific to Maine.

Area Managers for Maine can be found in the table below.

New editors should consider checking into the formal mentoring program available at no charge.


Cities and towns

One of the most common errors when editing the maps is when an editor creates a road and does not confirm the road by setting the city and road name (or stating it has none).

Duplicate cities can be caused by incorrectly named segments and should be corrected following the guidelines in the duplicate cities article.


We have assembled a list of all current Cities/Towns in Maine. Please do not deviate from this list by adding or subtracting Cities/Towns without first discussing it in the Maine Forum.


Major roads

Maine follows the general road naming and road type guidelines of the USA.


Some states have a separate page to track and identify the major roads in the state, but at this time, this one does not have such a page.


Special roads

Drivable roads

Maine follows the standard USA guidelines for all of the following special road types.

Non-drivable roads

Review the Wiki guidelines for non-drivable roads to ensure compliance with the general guidelines.


Guidelines that vary by state or territory

The following special roads are managed slightly uniquely in some states and territories. This state uses the following standard guidelines found in the Wiki.


Closures

When managing a section of roadway under construction or being closed for a major event, follow the Wiki guidelines on construction zones and Real time closures.


The Federal Highway Administration keeps a website indexing all states that can provide highway and construction project information. Go to the page, find your state, and check the links for the desired information.


Places

Maine follows the USA standard for Places. Do not deviate from the guidelines without first obtaining consensus to do so via the state forum linked on this page.


Cameras

Not every camera-looking device at an intersection is a speed or red light camera. Generally speaking:

  • Camera2true.png
    Rlc truvelo speed cam.jpeg
    a speed camera takes a photograph of a vehicle when it passes by the camera at too high a speed.
  • Camera4true.png
    Rlc white.jpeg
    a red light camera takes a photograph of a vehicle that enters an intersection after the light is red. In some areas, it takes the photograph when a vehicle is not clear of the intersection some period after the light turns red.

Be sure to know your cameras before accepting new camera reports.

Currently only the Waze client app can add cameras to the map. When adding a camera from the app, be sure to review the camera placement recommendations.

Laws regarding speed and red light cameras vary between the states and territories, so be sure to understand the details of camera legality in Maine.


Neither Red Light or Speed Cameras are legal in the state of Maine, please delete all you come across.

There are camera devices in use in the state, these are for traffic monitoring and data gathering. They are not used for ticketing purposes.


To do list

Many states and territories keep an active list of pending or closed actions that need to be done in the state by the editors. All editors are welcome to contribute to the list of activities.


This state does not currently have an active "to do" list at this time. Check in the Maine section of the Waze forums to discuss creating one.


Area Managers

The table below identifies the editors also designated as Area Managers or higher who are editing in Maine. If you have any questions, please consider contacting them directly as needed. If you are an Area Manager that covers Maine, or a USA Country Manager that does a lot of work in Maine, please add yourself to this list (alphabetical by username) in the correct rank section.

The editor who also serves as the Regional Coordinator for Maine is automatically listed at the top of the table. That editor may not be highly active in this state and therefore may not be listed separately in the table.
