Major Construction Projects
See the New Hampshire Forum for a list of long term road closures and changes to traffic flow that impact the Waze Map.
In New Hampshire we have a set minimum standard for locking roads based on segment type. Any road of a certain segment type must be locked at least to the rank (level) in the chart below. Roads may be locked higher for protection and special situations (areas with construction, tricky design, frequent mistakes, imaging inaccuracies, and the like), but should not be locked lower.
A great time to implement these locks is while bringing the road types of an area into compliance with the current US road type standards (FC and highway systems). Lock the roads based on type after they've been set to current US road type standards.
|Highest rank of connected segment|
Note: Exception: At the request of an AM (or other trusted local editor) a State Manager (SM) may optionally lower an entire area to facilitate local editing. Requests must be formally recorded in the US Unlock Forum, but can be discussed and pre-approved by an SM beforehand. The AM should request the locks be raised again to standard when the area has stabilized; the request should be made in the same thread where the unlock was originally requested. SMs should use caution when uplocking an area to standard: If the area is consistently locked below standard, it might have been granted such an exception, and should not be uplocked without verification.
- Divided Highways
- Carpool, HOV, Transit lanes
- Roundabouts/Traffic Circles
- Parking Lot Roads
- Toll Roads
- Alleys should always be mapped if they have a name.
- Alleys should always be mapped if they are the sole access to a home or business.
- Alleys should always be set to "Private"
- Alleys are normally mapped if they are acknowledged by the municipality.
If an alley does not meet the above criteria, mapping is optional. Leave the name field blank.
Generally, if a path can't be driven on (e.g. Walking Trail, Pedestrian Boardwalk, Stairway, Railroad, Runway/Taxiway) then it not normally mapped. If it is mapped, it should not be connected to any roads. This is due to the way the routing engine works, as Waze will route users to drive on these "Non-Drivable" road types.
It is permitted to map Railroads since some users run Waze while on the train and contributing false data to the system. This false data has been known to effect drivers on adjacent roads. Railroads should be level -5 and locked at the highest level of the editor.
Time Restricted Turns
There is beta testing for setting Time Based Restricted turns in WME. Watch for announcements in the forum on this feature
Speed / Red Light Cameras
Both Speed and Red Light Cameras are not permitted in New Hampshire and should not be mapped.
