There are many aspects of editing related to an editors rank and permissions that will control what can be changed on the map and how editors after them will be affected. Be sure to understand this information to be best prepared when editing the map.



There are many ranking systems in Waze. Each one is used for a different purpose. See this other page for more detailed information on the other ranking systems. The below information is only covering Editing Rank.



You can see your own editing rank from the Waze Map Editor (WME) on the top left of the screen. Your rank appears as a series of cones with a number. In the WME when you select a segment, the properties drawer will show you the name of the editor who created and last modified the segment. The number in parenthesis is the rank system scale.

If your rank is lower than what it should be (based on the criteria below), please contact support to have the team look into the situation. Currently moving from one rank to the next higher rank is not automatic and needs assistance from Waze support.

Note: Changes have been made to ranks as of May 2013. Some of these changes are still in discussion and may continue to change beyond what is shown below.

Over 500K edits and granted country-wide editing rights 6 Country-wide Once you reach 500K map edits, you can separately request through support that you be granted country wide editing rights for the server on which you participate. This is not a separate editing rank, but the old rank system used that term to refer to country managers (CM). In some countries with rank self management you will also need approval from the other CMs. In smaller countries with no current CM, you can request CM status at a lower rank and if appropriate you may be granted.
