by AlexN-114 (PM)

Highlighter City (HiLiCi) is a derivative of WME Color Highlights v. 1.7.2. It checks for some countries (Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Liechtenstein, Norway, Australia, France, Mexico, Italy and Puerto Rico) the correctness of the content of the city field. If you want this feature for your country, ask.

Please note that this conflicts with WME Color Highlights; both should NOT be active at the same time.

UR Overview Plus (URO+) link to this section edit nugget

URO+ adds a URO+ tab in the left-hand panel to provide various filtering options to URs, MPs, and cameras. It also modifies UR icons, and provides optional pop-ups on the map with various details, and links.

 This content is transcluded from a nugget source link to nugget 


by Twister-UK (PM)

  • URO+ adds a URO+ tab in the left-hand panel to provide various filtering options to show/hide update requests, map problem, and camera markers according to type, age, comment keyword, etc.
  • For any UR markers where a conversation is taking place, the marker is modified to show a small quote icon in place of the Waze icon. The quotes are on a green background or if you have commented on the UR, a yellow background. Optionally, a small circle with the count of comments can be shown too.
  • For any markers that are visible, hovering the mouse pointer over the marker generates a pop-up which contains a summary of the marker information and some marker-type specific actions (e.g., opening an update request in a new tab, deleting a camera).
  • Optional functionality (Go to subtab Misc, "Enable integrated scripts"):
    • Functionality from DrivesTabEnhancer (DTE) script:
      Modifies the Drives tab in the left-hand panel to show more drives per sub-page (up to the WME limit of 50/page), and to inform the user which drives are available to view on the map as a route trail. Although Waze stores the drive summaries (date, distance, etc) for every drive ever made, it stores the actual route data only for the most recent drives.
    • Functionality from Select Roundabout Segments (SRS) script.
      Adds a Select roundabout button to the segment edit panel when a single segment from a roundabout is selected. Clicking the button selects the entire roundabout. Note that if the entire roundabout doesn't get selected, it probably means the roundabout itself is broken.

On this page, you will find a brief overview of the features of the WME URComments script. Within WME, holding the mouse over any of the items will show tool tips describing the function or displaying the text to be used. For an extensive description, please view the illustrated slideshow.


Updates

This script has an auto-update feature which automatically downloads and installs the up-to-date version upon release.

Assistance

Should you require any assistance on this script, or want to propose new features, please post a message in the following forum thread: UrComments (in English).

Features

WME URComments UR pill.PNG

WME URComments displays the URs in your screen with a brief indication of its status; amount of comments, amount of days since last comment, and who the commenter is. White and blue pills indicate URs that you currently handle. You can find an elaborate description of the pills in the illustrated slideshow.


This script adds another tab to the left side panel in WME. There are four main elements, the header and three sub tabs. We will explain each of the elements below.

Header
WME URComments tab1.PNG
  1. UR Comments Version Number: Tampermonkey and Greasemonkey are not always reliable at fetching updates, so once-in-a-while it is a good idea to check your version number against the version listed on greasyfork.
  2. Zoom Out 0 & Close UR: Zooms all the way out and closes the UR window.
  3. Zoom Out 2 & Close UR: Zooms out to level 2
  4. Zoom Out 3 & Close UR: Zooms out to level 3. This is where you can find most of the toolbox highlighting works.
  5. 55 or any other number: amount of active URs (maybe hidden by filters) in your display
  6. WME URComments reloadbutton.PNG

Map reload button: Reloads the map without having to go into Waze's layers menu

Comments

WME URComments generates comments based on UR report type. You can have them auto-inserted in the text window of the UR, or choose from a list of other comments. You can adjust the comments before sending, depending on the presets. To make your own custom list, view the tutorial.

WME URComments Comments small.PNG


The comments in the list are color coded, black, orange, green, and red. They all generate a standard text that auto-inserts in the comment window. If you enable the setting "Auto click open, solved, not identified", the script will also set the status of the UR:

  • Black comments set the UR Status to "Open"
  • Orange comments set the UR Status to "Not Identified"
  • Green comments set the UR Status to "Solved"
  • Red comments have errors in the script; they will still generate the comment text and then set the UR Status to "Open"

Before actually sending your comment, make sure you understand the report and adjust the text accordingly!

Filters
WME URComments filters3.PNG



You can set several kinds of filters for URs to display. Hover your mouse over the items will show tool tips describing their function.

The Filters and Auto Reminders work in conjunction with the Reminder days and Close Days setting.




Also, you can set the amount of days after you wish to send a reminder message, and the amount of days after you would like to close a message.


Integration with URO+

From version 1.1.0 on, you can easily use URComments without URO+ installed, since URComments has it's own filter settings. For those using URO+, URComments works smoothly together. However, if you use URO+ filters, the filters of URComments will be disabled. To enable them, simply check Enable URComments UR filtering. You may need to disable URO+ filters first.

Settings
WME URComments settings.PNG

In the settings, you define how URComments works for you. To make yourself acquintainted, it is recommended to check all settings from the first list, except the 8th and the last two. Holding the mouse over any of the items will show tool tips describing the function.

From the Comment List Drop down menu, choose which list you want to use. The available files are listed at the bottom of this page. To make your own list, use the Custom List and view the tutorial. If you need support, you can find assistance in the forum.

Some advanced settings are at the bottom of this tab. Make yourself acquainted with this script before you change the settings and use them with care, especially the Auto send reminders option.

Motivation

Current Waze road layer is generated on a Waze server and is just downloaded on the users' browsers. This script allows to locally generate a vector layer based on the Waze object model.

The layer is generated on the client side and therefore is fully customizable. Moreover it shows many more things than the standard layer, for example speed limits, road closures and segments' elevation.

Customization Panel

To open the script's settings, click on the attribution bar on the bottom left of the map. Don't forget to save before closing the panel, otherwise the changes will only have effect until you refresh the editor page.

WME Junction Node Fixer link to this section edit nugget

This script performs a handful of functions, triggered by the q key, fixing junctions and segments. It also tweaks the WME UI a bit.

 This content is transcluded from a nugget source link to nugget 


by bgodette (PM)

Junction Node Fixer has several features. The primary focus of JNF is that it overloads the 'q' (disallowAllTurns) keyboard shortcut to preserve existing turn restrictions. 'Overloading' means that it takes over all functionality of the 'q' hotkey only. The 'q' keyboard shortcut performs the following actions

  • Fixes any self and reverse connectivity issues
  • Fixes closed loop roads (by splitting into two segments with a joining junction)
  • Terminates dead-ends with a junction
  • Makes dead-ends two-way (only if both ends of the segment are visible)
  • Sets the Type of a roundabouts using lowest of two highest rule and sets country/state if needed
  • For UK sets Type of roundabouts using highest type excluding Freeway rule.
  • Does a traditional 'qw' (clears reverse connectivity, and locks turns)
  • Causes the turn arrows to refresh (the side effect of 's' but without the shifting).

Since you end up with the same turns restricted, that means you need to press 'w' if you really want all turns allowed. This is why it overloads 'q' instead of 'w'. Ultimately this will be a separate hotkey that's editable through WME's '?' interface.

JNF also:

  • Saves the state of WME's ShowAllTurns, ShowTurns, and Full-screen mode across Refresh/F5/Permalink.
  • Forces data model reload after successful save.

This has been tested only in Chrome; it has been reported to work in Firefox with GreaseMonkey.

WME Roundabout Angles link to this section edit nugget

The WME Roundabout Angles script can help in designing normal roundabouts. It draws angles for typical roundabouts and overlays a round helper line to adjust the geometry of a roundabout.

 This content is transcluded from a nugget source link to nugget 


by wlodek76 (PM), currently managed by FZ69617 (PM)


The script provides guidance based on the rules described in the roundabouts wiki page.

The original authorship of the script is by wlodek76, who decided to leave the Waze community (hopefully, not forever...). The rights for further maintenance of the script have been granted by the original author to FZ69617 (PM) (forum profile).


Brief instructions:

  • Activate the script by enabling the "Roundabout Angles" layer in WME
  • The default is inactive, therefore the script will always be off when you reload WME. It must be activated again each time its needed (after reloading WME).
  • The script will automatically find all roundabouts visible on the map - pan and / or zoom the map, if it doesn't find them.
  • Angles will only be displayed for roundabouts with four or less nodes. The other roundabouts will still display the round helper line in a slightly different color, together with a line to the first three nodes, but no angles will be displayed.

version 1.3.2 (Oct 07, 2013)


WAS.jpg

Generally the GPS points layer will be displayed on the map at a location parallel to the visual roadway. Adjust the settings in this script until the GPS points are aligned with the visual map. Different sections of the map may or may not have this same amount of misalignment, so it is best to use this same technique in other areas before you use the same offset as a prior area.

Street to River PLUS link to this section edit nugget

Street-created-selected-and-named.png
This script generates an River area place, by drawing a road in WME, the area can be customized based on the segment name.

 This content is transcluded from a nugget source link to nugget 


by EduardoCarvajal (PM); based on the script by aeytom (PM)

Street created, selected and named
River created and helper street deleted

The script is designed as a helper for creating river landmarks for the free Waze navigation system. The script transforms the geometry of a new unsaved street to a river landmark. You can predefine the width and the name for the new landmark in the form of a special street name.

Mini how-to:

To add a new river:

  • Install this script and go to WME.
  • Draw a new street but do not save the street.
  • Add and apply a street name to define the rivers name and width. This step is optional.
Example: 20m Spree creates a 20 meters wide river named Spree
  • Select the helper street.
  • Click the Street to river button.
  • Delete the helper street.
  • Edit the new landmark as you like. You can even set the landmark to another type. Here it is used to mark a railroad, using landmark type 'other'.

To expand an existing river:

  • Draw a new Street that starts inside an existing river, but do not save the Street.
  • Make sure that you see on map the beginning of the Street (the intersection point of the street and the river)
  • Select the helper Street.
  • Click the "Street to river" button.
  • Delete the helper Street.
  • Edit the new landmark as you like.

Examples of rivers created by the script are Sixaola River and Telire River.

Multilingual interface: English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Russian, Hungarian and Czech.

WME Magic Wand link to this section edit nugget

The very same thing as same tool in graphic editor: select "similar" colored area and create landmark out of it + Clone, Orthogonalize, Rotate and Resize options for landmarks.

 This content is transcluded from a nugget source link to nugget 


by Wasd42 (PM)

Magic Wand
Clone and Rotate
Orthogonalize

Features

  • Magic wand tool - the very same thing as in Photoshop: point on a pixel on the map, click and the tool will create a landmark covering whole area of the same color (see example GIF here)
  • Clone landmark (see GIF example here). With this simple tool plus rotate and resize feature (below) you can create dozens of houses in a minute! Press Ctrl (Cmd) + C to Clone.
  • Orthogonalize landmark corners - same tool as many of you have seen before in OpenStreetMaps iD editor, will make "almost" straight corners of the selected landmark perfectly straight thus making a beautiful landmarks in mobile clients :) See example here. Press Ctrl (Cmd) + X to Orthogonalize selected landmark.
  • Rotate and resize landmarks option (GIF example)

WME MagicWand has been tested in Chrome and Firefox.

Usage

Advanced editing tools
Clone landmark

Select a landmark you want to clone and press "Clone landmark" button on the left hand menu or use Ctrl (Cmd) + C shortcut. The landmark will be cloned with a same venue type but otherwise empty.

Orthogonalize landmark

Select a landmark and press "Orthogonalize" button on the left hand menu or use Ctrl (Cmd) + X shortcut. This algorithm will try to make "about" straight corners really strait to avoid ugly look in Waze client.

Options for Rotation and Resize
  • Open the MagicWand tab in the left menu;
  • Check or uncheck boxes to enable or disable Rotate and Resize functionality;
  • Select landmark;
  • ROTATE: drag the additional landmark's vertice to rotate it;
  • RESIZE: drag the additional landmark's vertice to resize. Please note that when RESIZE option is enabled you cannot modify individual vertices.
Magic Wand tool
  • Open the MagicWand tab in the left menu;
  • Choose the type of the supposed landmark (can be changed later);
  • Toggle MAGIC WAND button: red means ACTIVE state;
  • Click somewhere in the area you'd like to be converted to landmark based on the color (best work with farmland, water, building and forests);
  • Wait a bit (the actual time depend on your computer) for landmark to be created;
  • Edit the created landmark to fine tune the area.

What does all that options mean?

Color match algorithm - WME MagicWand can use two different algorithms to detect similar pixels on the tiles: based on color "distance" and based on "human-eye similarity". Choose the best suitable option for you but please keep in mind that when changing algorithm you will need to play with Tolerance option too as both algorithms uses it differently.

Tolerance option basically changes sensitivity of the algorithm, what pixels would be supposed to have "similar" color. Large values will select all pixels -- that is not what you want :)

Landmark simplification - as map tiles contains tons of pixels of different color finding appropriate polygon to contain all of "similar" pixels is a difficult computational problem. Current implementation uses one of convex hull algorithms to do it. The problem is that it creates many points on the curves and corners and thus you can use simplification parameter to remove unnecessary points automatically.

Notes

  • Please wait when map tiles will be fully loaded after moving or zooming to make plugin work properly.
  • As WME MagicWand uses convex hull to approximate the area it is not able to correctly select difficult concave landmarks. I was not able to implement concave hull algorithm yet and I will really appreciate any help anyone can give me :)
  • As far as I understand we can make the script more accurate if it will compare not individual pixels but certain groups, say 5x5 or 10x10. Need an advice about it though.

I'm really open for any suggestions and comments :)

Installation

  • Download script using Install button in the right top corner;
  • Open Options -> Tools -> Extensions page;
  • Drag & Drop downloaded file to Extensions page.

WME Speedhelper

WME Speedhelper has made inputting speed data easy, with the use of handy speedsign images. You just need to select one or more segments and click the speed you want. If a segment isn't yet verified, don't worry, these checkboxes will be automatically checked.

Country missing?

If your country isn't supported yet, let me know by following the forum link at the bottom and let me know the following details:

  • Country name & Waze abbreviation
  • Requested speeds (please use a comma-seperated list)
  • Kmh or mph?
  • A link to the design of your country's speedsign. (only needed if it's not a red circle/white background/black text = default)

WME Chat addon window

This script changes the chat GUI to add more functionality to the chat window:

WME Addon settings.png
  • Removes duplicate messages (hide only, this is not a fix for WME bug)
  • Adds TTS functionality for incoming messages in any language supported by Google
    • Find the language code in the Google Translate URL in between /#en/ , the letters in the place of en are the language code
    • Customize the prefix text for messages and links in settings
  • Make links clickable, and opens in new tab
  • Transforms permalinks into clickable target without reloading WME.
  • Hover over the link to see how elements v(segments, nodes, venues) are included in the permalink.
  • Small "+" and permalink icon next to the input message area to insert current permalink
WME addon names.png
  • Bell or Zzz icon next to each user in the users list to insert the "bip" in the message (insert a text containing the username, customisable in settings)
    • Bell icon changes to reflect recent activity status (movement on map, or chat message post). Activity within the past 5 minutes = Green -> Red gradual change, after 20 minutes = Zzz.
  • Top bar is made light grey when invisible
  • You can use smileys: :) :D ;) :( :o :? 8-) :x :P :|
  • “Settings button (gear)” on top bar, near minimize button on right side includes options to:
  • Remove messages of users not in the room
  • Post a system message when a user joins or leaves the room
  • Sort user list by user name, rank, and/or activity (username for secondary sort)
  • Force room connection when editing near country boundaries
  • Messages are manipulated to:
    • Make live usernames clickable to send “bip”
    • Show a target link next to the username in a message to jump to their location
    • Show rank of user next to username
    • Show date and time or only time of post (available in settings), in small font size, grey, and right aligned
    • Play sound on new message (mutable in settings)
    • New messages posted by you have a light blue background (adjustable in settings "My message background color")

  • Alerts:
    • Chat top panel (if open) or chat button (if closed) change color to dark red (color adjustable in settings) if someone type a message containing any of your keywords (case insensitive).
    • Keywords are set in settings, the default is your username but you can add others separated by a comma “,”. (See tool tip text in settings)
    • Alert keywords in message are highlighted
    • Alert color returns back to original color when you send a message, close chat window, or click on highlighted keyword
    • Play sound on alert (mutable in settings)
  • Compatible with WME Chat jumper: so each "jump" with WME Chat addon is reversible using WME Chat jumper.

This adds buttons to the Waze chat window that let you click to hide or show the user list and to make the list taller or the normal height.

It also has buttons to auto / and no scrolling of the chat.

And also removes the space on the right of the chat window.

Initially this was based off Chat Jumper.
