Tänasel päeval kasutab Waze aadressiotsing teisi geoinfosüsteeme. Praegu käib oma aadressiandmete ning otsingu arendus. Selleks, et otsing töötaks ja ka oodatud tulemusi annaks, on vaja süsteemil aru saada, mida kasutaja erinevate otsingusõnade all silmas on pidanud. Selleks korjab Waze andmeid erinevate keelte kasutamise ning riikide kohta.

Siin on kirjas küsimused, mida võiks üheskoos vastata. Arutelu saab pidada foorumis
