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).
Local naming variations
Vermont uses VT-##, and VT-##X for all state routes and their spurs, loops, etc. (e.g. VT-74, VT-67A)
In Vermont 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.
Vermont is currently in the process of upgrading the entire road network to meet the national guidance for road type classification. This will ensure a consistent, and better navigational experience to Wazers around the country. The general guidelines for implementation are in the Road Types (USA) page. Any local deviations, and special information for Vermont will be listed below.
Vermont follows the standard USA guidelines for all of the following special road types.
- Divided highways and roadways
- Carpool, HOV, Transit lanes
- Roundabouts and traffic circles
- Dirt roads
- Toll roads
- Partial and scheduled restrictions
- Private installations and military bases
Review the Wiki guidelines for non-drivable roads to ensure compliance with the general guidelines.
- 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" (Northeast regional standard)
- 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.
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.
Not every camera-looking device at an intersection is a speed or red light camera. Generally speaking:
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 Vermont.
Based on information researched at the time this page was created, red light and speed cameras are illegal statewide in Vermont.
No other camera types should be mapped in Waze.
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 Vermont section of the Waze forums to discuss creating one.
The table below identifies the editors also designated as Area Managers or higher who are editing in Vermont. If you have any questions, please consider contacting them directly as needed. If you are an Area Manager that covers Vermont, or a USA Country Manager that does a lot of work in Vermont, please add yourself to this list (alphabetical by username) in the correct rank section.
The editor who also serves as the Regional Coordinator for Vermont 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.
