This is a DRAFT procedure for requesting to be an Area Manager.


There has been fantastic growth in the use of Waze in the past 12 months. More and more editors are adding to the map, and more and more drivers are relying on Waze for their daily commute or for longer distance travel. With this growth comes the issue of ensuring that each Area Manager adds value to the map so as to continue to deliver an ever increasingly reliable map for drivers. In order to provide this reassurance, the community has requested that a new process be set up to approve Area Managers. This process is outlined below.

Requesting a region

Before submitting a request to be an area manager, please make sure you have thoroughly read all of the UK Editing Guidelines. You must be able to show recent edits that of good quality and that comply with these guidelines.

[_] I have read and understood the UK Editing Guidelines

If this is your first request for an area, then that area will be limited to X square miles.

  • 16 square miles is the area I first requested, and allowed me to edit my town/village.

Procedure for Approval

For each AM application, one of the UK Country Managers will review the recent edits by the applicant to ensure they are of sufficient quality, and provide constructive criticism where necessary.

Discussions will be held in a private part of the forum, and applications will be approved when 4 (?) CMs have given their approval.

A mentor will be assigned to the AM, to provide advice and answer any questions.
