The specific details of the Area Manager role are currently under review within the Waze community. Some of the information below is currently out of date. Please review the forums for more information. Once the role changes are finalized, this section will be updated as required.


An Area Manager, AM for short, is a Waze community member (a user) who wishes to take an active and proactive role in maintaining specific areas of the Waze map. How deeply involved and how much time an Area Manager spends maintaining the Waze map varies greatly. Duties of an Area Manager include, but not necessarily limited to:

  • Make changes to the map when road construction projects complete and road geometry needs to be changed, or roads added or removed from the map.
  • Edit road construction areas, especially for closures so that users are not routed into those areas.
  • Respond to and act on Update Requests from Waze drivers.
  • Maintain speed and red-light cameras, processing reports of devices from Waze drivers.
  • Process and resolve Map Errors or Problems as shown on that layer in the Waze Map Editor.
  • Act as a mentor to other editors, offering advice in both the forums and when you see improper edits on the map.
