Area Managers - Le guide complet En cours de traduction. Merci pour votre aide ☺ D'après le document Waze Area_Manager_101.doc

Back to Area Manager FAQ


Introduction et Remerciements

Merci pour devenir un responsable de zone sur Waze. grâce à de gens comme vous, Waze ne pourra que s'améliorer. Vous êtes indispensable pour le succès de Waze. Nous apprécions votre aide énormément.

SVP lisez toutes les informations sur cette partie de FAQ pour les responsables de zone, Regardez les videos, et ajoutez vos questions et vos commentaires au Forum. N'hésitez pas à envoyer des messages privés à d'autres responsables de zone enregistrés dans votre ville en utilisant le site Webou par notre courriel. Ou bien, Mettez à jour le wiki avec des choses que vous avez appris.

Mais, nous avons une grande demande. Soyez patient(e)s. Rome ne s'est pas faite, ou cartographiée, en un jour. Il faudra du temps pour y parvenir. Du temps pour construire les cartes, de détecter les erreurs, corriger les erreurs et créer la masse critique de wazers afin que les rapports en temps réel dans les routes fournissent d'importantes données d'alerte précoce.

En tant que responsable de zone, nous savons que cela peut parfois être frustrant, et nous vous demandons également d'être patient avec nous. À certains moments, cela peut prendre quelques jours pour voir vos corrections de carte sur le client, mais elles apparaitront finalement. Alors continuer à corriger. Nous sommes en pleine croissance, et nous nous réjouissons à un avenir brillant, grâce à vous tous.

P.S. Si vous voulez devenir responsable de zone, il suffit d'envoyer un courriel à alpha@waze.comou bien à wazefr@waze.com avec votre nom d'utilisateur sur Waze, votre courriel, et unSuper Permalien de la zone que vous voulez aider à corriger à partir de la carte d'édition de la zone que vous voulez aider à corriger.

Demandes de modification

Qu'est-ce qu'une demande de modification?

C'est l'outil principal pour communiquer avec votre communauté! Les demandes de modification sont un moyen de communication directe entre les wazers de votre zone et vous. Cela permet à chaque wazer de signaler des erreurs et des modifications de la carte sans avoir besoin de comprendre comment les résoudre, et c'est bien là que vous pouvez intervenir en tant que responsable de zone. Chacun peut signaler des problèmes sur la carte, soit à partir du livemap ou directement à partir du client. Pour la plupart d'entre eux il s'agit d'un simple clic, pour vous ce sont des données précieuses.

Les demandes de modification sont des demandes ajoutées par les utilisateurs sur la carte en directe dans certains endroits. Lors du choix d'une route sur la carte en, l'utilisateur a la possibilité de signaler un problème.

Cet outil permet à l'utilisateur de signaler des problèmes tels que: mise à jour d'un nom, une rue est manquant, corriger la route, manque d'intersection etc. Les utilisateurs ont la possibilité d'ajouter un texte descriptif, mais ce n'est pas obligatoire lors de la présentation d'une demande mise à jour, et certaines demandes n'ont pas de description. Une autre option pour signaler un problème est d'utiliser un téléphone portable avec l'appli waze. Les utilisateurs peuvent signaler des problèmes en entrant à l'interface de modification sur le client.

Cet outil vous fournit non seulement les moyens pour voir la carte et les problèmes de navigation des utilisateurs dans votre zone, mais il vous permet également d'enseigner et de diriger les wazers dans votre communauté, en leur expliquant comment ils peuvent régler les problèmes par leurs propres moyens.

Lorsqu'une demande de modification a été envoyé, elle sera indiquée sur le cartouche avec un cercle, dont chaque couleur représente un statut différent:

UpdateRequest.jpg

  • Rouge – problème ouvert:Le problème est nouveau ou n'a pas été vérifiée pour le moment. Plus le temps passe, le problème développera plusieurs cercles autour de lui.
  • jaune – nécessite une visite sur le terrain: Il est pas impossible de résoudre le problème car il n'y a pas assez d'informations. Il est nécessaire de conduire dans ce domaine afin d'améliorer la carte.
  • Bleu – données manquantes:Il n'y a pas assez d'information pour comprendre et pour résoudre le problème.

Comment résoudre les demandes de modification?

lors de la sélection de l'icône de la demande de modification, le panneau de modification affichera:

Edit Panel caractéristique
Update Request Edit Panel
  • Type de modification: Le genre de problème que l'utilisateur a sélectionné.
  • Fenêtre de texte libre: Si l'utilisateur a écrit un commentaire concernant le problème (texte libre).
  • Fenêtre de réponse: C'est là que vous répondez à l'utilisateur qui a ouvert la demande.
  • Statut de la modofication: Le statut de la demande.
  • Ouvert il y a: Combien de jours sont-ils passés depuis que la demande a été envoyée.
  • Nom: Le nom de l'utilisateur qui a ouvert la demande.


Un clic sur Enregistrer les modifications mettra à jour la demande et enverra automatiquement un courriel à l'utilisateur qui a ouvert la demande. Actuellement, le courriel sera envoyé via le soutien de waze (votre email privé ne sera pas partagée), mais nous travaillons sur l'ajout d'une interface qui permettra une communication directe entre wazers.

OK, je comprends. Mais quel est donc mon rôle?

Bonne question! Le wazers utilisent cet outil pour vous informer des problèmes de cartes dans leur zone. En tant que directeur de zone, vous êtes celui qui dispose des autorisations pour ajouter ou modifier les informations contenues dans la carte.

L'outil de demandes de modification permet à la communauté de vous signaler ces problèmes et ainsi vous pouvez garder la trace de leurs demandes. Pendent qu'ils conduisent, les wazers parfois Identifient un problème comme une interdiction de tourner qui n'est pas indiquée, un nom de rue incorrect, des direction routières incorrectes, etc. Puisqu'ils n'ont pas les autorisations nécessaires pour modifier et corriger la carte, ou qu'ils ne connaissent pas assez bien l'interface du cartouche, ils s'adresseront à vous.
Ils ouvriront la demande de modification pendant qu'ils conduisent ou lorsqu'ils visitent le site. Parfois, ils vont ajouter des informations concernant ce problème, parfois, ils ne le feront pas. Quand vous ouvrez la demande, assurez-vous de lire et de comprendre ce que l'utilisateur voulait dire en ouvrant la demande. Parfois les demandes ne seront pas assez claires, et parfois il n'y aura pas suffisamment d'informations pour résoudre le problème. Si vous ne comprenez pas la demande de l'utilisateur, écrivez lui que vous avez besoin de plus d'infos pour résoudre le problème.

Si une rue manque, vous pouvez chercher les points GPS existants et créer la route, ou bien marquer la demande en 'nécessite une visite sur le terrain' ce qui signifie que quelqu'un aura à conduire dans cette route avant qu'elle puisse être cartographiée.

SVP, soyez polis et gentils lorsque vous répondez aux utilisateurs, et écrivez d'une façon simple et compréhensible. Selon le vieil adage Il y a un proverbe qui dit que... "Donnez à un homme un poisson et vous le nourrissez pour un jour. Apprenez-lui à pêcher et vous le nourrirez pour la vie" - Enseignez à votre communauté à résoudre les problèmes par eux-mêmes, cela enlèvera un poids de vous.

Quel est le meilleur moyen de suivre mes demandes de modification sur ma zone?

I y a deux façons de suivre les demandes de modification dans votre zone: La première est d'avoir un flux sur votre lecteur RSS, comme Google reader - clicquez ici pour voir Waze le Flux RSS de Waze des Demandes de Modification sur votre zone. L'autre façon consiste à faire défiler la carte de votre région pour voir s'il ya des demandes nouvelles ou non résolues. Note: assurez-vous d'activer l couche des demandes de modification dans le Panneau des couches dans le cartouche.

J'ai capté. Est-il possible de m'aider à répondre aux utilisateurs d'une manière simple??

Biensûr. Il suffit d'utiliser ces réponses déjà écrites, cela peut vous aider parfois par «copier-coller" la réponse dans la boîte de réponses. Vous pouvez utiliser la liste des formulaires disponibles ici.

La communauté - Forum - Comment faire pour être disponible pour les autres membres de votre zone

Le Forum vous permet de rester en contact avec votre communauté. Les autres wazers peuvent partager leurs connaissances de leur ville pour vous aider à la cartographie et à la développer. Plus la zone que vous avez sous votre responsabilité est grande, plus vous aurez besoin des autres wazers pour vous aider.

Il est important de travailler avec les autres wazers de votre communauté - ce sont eux qui connaissent le mieux la région où ils vivent, et comme vous, ils bénéficieront de l'amélioration de la carte. Vous pouvez lire sur les demandes de modification, leur aider à cartographier et à résoudre des problèmes, et même leur demander de cartographier des parties de leur région.

Comment utiliser le Forum?

Pour lancer le Forum dans le site de waze– cliquez sur le label communauté et ensuite sur go to forums.

  1. Sélectionnez “country (languages) forums”.
  2. Trouvez votre pays.
  3. Vous pouvez ajouter un nouveau topic (il est recommandé d'ajouter un nouveau topic avec votre région ou nom de ville, afin de fournir un forum qui vous sert et qui sert votre communauté. (Par exemple: Forum du Royaume-Uni - Londres forum - Forum Eastend).

I can't find any relevant forum for my region / country, what should I do?

Have no worries. Just send us an email to alpha@waze.com with a request to add a new country, language or region and we will add the topic to the forum.

I have a forum of my area. What now?

Good question! Now your community has a place to discuss with each other, and let you know about problems they have and ask for your assistance and guidance. If you've noticed other wazers are editing roads in / around your area, invite them with a Private Message (PM) to come join your forum and discuss further mapping there, so it will be available for any other wazers who join in the future.

Is there a simple way to keep track of the forum?

Of course! you can now subscribe for specific forums that interest you, or remain with the current feed that holds all the posts on the forum. To subscribe to a specific feed, you will need the forum id which appears as part of the URL when you open the forum.

For example, the MAP forum is #8 as seen from its URL: viewforum.php?f=8 Subscribing to a forum will also subscribe you to all of its sub-forums.

In order to get the RSS for the MAP forum only, use this url:http://www.waze.com/WAS/forum_feeds?ids=8

To add another forum, for example, the Norwegian forum (id = 54) just add the number following a comma (no spaces): http://www.waze.com/WAS/forum_feeds?ids=8,54

By default, the feed will contain the last 10 posts, but you can extend up to 100 posts by adding &limit=xxx to the end of the RSS feed URL: http://www.waze.com/WAS/forum_feeds?ids=8,54&limit=100

what should I do with this forum feed?

You will need to Subscribe to a site that can provide you a way to gather all the feeds from the forums you have choosen. There are a number of sites that provide this service, such as netvibes.com, igoogle, bing etc.

Map problems

Information about map problems is available on waze's wiki - check this link: Map Editing. We have two types of map problems — merger problems and scan problems.

What do scan problems mean?

(also check the wiki page How_to_fix_scan_problems_(problems_1-31) ).


Scan problems are shown on the map when the program recognizes a situation that might be problematic for navigation. You will have to activate the Map Problem Layer in order to see problems that exist on the map. If there is a major problem that is left unsolved, waze will not be able to route in the specific area where the problem exists. It is vital, as an area manager, to check the map in your area and see whether these problems can affect the navigation of users in your community and if so, fix them. Our Scan Problems wiki page holds all the information you’ll need to know in order to solve these problems. Make sure you check it out.

What do merger problems mean?

(also check the wiki page How_to_fix_merger_problems_(problems_51-60))

Merger problems are slightly different from the scan problems. The merger problems are problems that arise after the program runs a daily scan and finds anomalies. This is where the current map does not fit the actual route of other wazers.

For example, a road segment is not where it should be. Because of this, the actual route that was taken by wazers will be far from the current road showing on the Waze map, thus creating a merger problem. As an area manager, the «merger problems» tool can help you detect if there are roads that should be fixed or if there are new roads that should be added.

Once again, please visit the merger problem issue in our wiki page to get all the information you need to solve these problems. Pay special attention to the fact that some of these problems do not need fixing. Some merge problem might arise from inaccurate GPS tracks caused by wazers with cell phones having inaccurate GPS chips.

Pending deletion

What is pending deletion?

Another good question. Pending deletion is a tool that lets you monitor and approve deletion of roads that wazers from your community suggest be deleted. You are the only one who can approve or disapprove deletions of roads in your area! Most important: the tool helps you validate the integrity of the map in your area. You will be the one who approves the deletion of roads. Check the roads before you approve or disapprove deletions.

After a (normal) user asks to delete a segment, he will receive a message that his request is pending the approval of the area manager. In the meantime, until you review his request, the segment will remain on the map but a label with a warning sign saying 'road is pending for deletion' - so map editors will know not to work on this segment anymore. After you review the pending deletion requests, you can either delete the segment which will completely remove it from the map, or discard the request which will bring the segment back to its regular form.

ok, but how is it done?

Very simple! In the update map (cartouche), you have the View Panel. There you can see the option «pending», which is only available after you become an area manager. By clicking on «pending», a new menu will pop up:

This menu is divided to 6 columns:

Pending Panel Attributes
Pending.jpg Pending
  • Mark — allows you to mark several road segments, and after you marked them you can either click on «approve all marked»- to approve the deletion of the roads you marked, or click on «discard all marked» to disapprove the deletion.
  • User — shows you the name of the user who suggested to delete this segment. (note, this option can help you detect a "problematic" user who tries to delete roads just for fun)
  • Show - by clicking on "select" under this column , you will be able to see the road that was suggested to be deleted — it is highlighted in purple.
  • Date — the date that the deletion was suggested by the user.

Approve — approve the deletion of this specific segment.

  • Discard — disapprove the deletion of the specific segment.

Make sure you make a routine check of the pending deletions candidates frequently.


Make sure you make a routine check of the pending deletions candidates frequently.

House numbering

(please check the wiki at our site to learn about numbering houses.) Adding house numbers to streets is vital for proper navigation. The goal is to establish accurate house / business street numbers for each street that was created and to add numbers to an already existing street.

I see... but what's my part in house numbering as an area manager?

Brilliant question. Like your duty in the "pending deletion" tool, you are the one who approves the house numbers. As the area manager of your zone, you should make sure that the numbering, done by other wazers, is correct.

ok...how do I do that?

Simple as pie! Open the update map (cartouche), turn on the "House Numbers" Layer. Now you can see house numbers that were recorded by other users (showed as red circles with an arrow inside). In order to save / approve the recordings you must approve them.

Just click on one of the circles, check if the data is accurate and press save. If not, change the house numbers. That's it. Simple as pie.

Mapping tips

This is the crown jewel.

As an area manager you have permissions not only to create new roads according to your routes but create roads according to the GPS points made by any other wazer in your area.

When mapping a map from scratch, meaning that there are hardly any roads recorded by users, it is your duty to make the map alive by mapping the area yourself. Keep in mind that if you're still not sure about any of the cartouche features and options, you can check this wiki article.

Sounds great! Where do I start?

Work your way by the importance of the roads. Start mapping the freeways, ramps, major and minor highways and then move to the main streets etc.

Start from the highways that connect the cities, Thist will allow basic navigation around the city and its surroundings. Then create ramps, then major roads in the city itself, in order to make the navigation simple and quick. When you're done mapping the main roads create the smaller streets.

As soon as the main grid is up and live, it'll be easy for other wazers to join in. As more wazers navigate in your area, there will be more data, helping you build the map faster and easier. The better the map is, the more users will join you by mapping their own streets.


Anything tricky about this map editing stuff?

Unfortunately, yes. What you see, is not always what your get - Turn restrictions and connectivity

As a new Area Manager, before you go off and start making lots of changes to your map area, let's stop a minute and be sure you understand how to truly 'see' what waze sees in your map. New area managers often think they just need to open the roads by setting the direction and modify a road segments geometry to match the aerial map. Sometimes that is enough but to really get your map right, you need to use some viewing tools to look deeper.


AllSeemsWell.jpg


Just because you have a nice map like this, Where the directions are correct and where there is a nice junction at each intersection, don't think that everything is copacetic. What you see is not always what you get.

Roads may seem to be 'open' but Waze may think they are not drivable. Huh?! Yep, just because one road touches another road and has a junction, waze may not think you can make a turn. How do you tell? There are two tools that help a lot. First, You have to click Restricted Turns in the Layers panel. Then some red turn restriction arrows may appear. See that we have a restricted turn as James avenue crosses Lagoon.

Road Restrictions.jpg

But wait, there is more. The second tool, Highlight Connectivity shows which roads are actually connected to each other. Again, placing a junction does not insure all the roads really connect.

By checking the Highlight Connectivity box in the View panel, you see the true picture. See what happend to our view of James and Lagoon. As you travel south on James, Waze understands you can take a right turn to go west on Lagoon - Green Highlight, Waze also understands that you can take a right turn from Lagoon onto James going north or you can go northward on James across Lagoon - orange lines. But, Waze does not think you can drive south on James across Lagoon.

Connectivity.jpg

But you can go south on James across Lagoon, But how do you fix it? You fix it first, by selecting the two road segments in the order that you would drive them. In this case, first click the James Ave segment to the North of Lagoon and then command/ctrl click (command for Mac, ctrl for Windows) the segment to the south. Next, on the Edit panel, click Connect Roads by order of selection. Next To remove the turn restriction, you must click on the junction at Lagoon and James, and once the junction is highlighed with a circle, click Enable all Turns on the Edit Panel.

I did some mapping, but how should I label the new roads that I created?

Just visit our wiki page and you will find all the information you need is here. We realize that road types differ from one country to another. A few have already created their own guidelines in separate wiki articles for their country. If you are not sure about your country, you can ask us at alpha@waze.com and we will assist.

I see this Locked checkbox option when I edit roads, is that dangerous?

Actually, no it is very useful. When you select a road segment and click edit details, the Locked checkbox is shown. If you have a new area, the checkboxes will mostly be unchecked. The Locked checkbox, if checked, prevents Waze from automatically changing the direction(s) of a road segment. If a road segment in your area is unchecked and a wazer with a poorly calibrated GPS passes through the neignborhood, the wazers bad signal could make waze think your recently set one way roads are actually two way.

EditRoadDetails.jpg

Setting the locked checkbox is not like 'until death do us part'. As area manager you can modify the road directions to your hearts content. The Locked checkbox just keeps Waze from trying to 'help'

General rule: When you go through your area, if you are pretty sure about the direction of your roads, you should lock them.

Ok, but what if I'm about to change a road segments direction and it already has a lock on it. What do I do then? In that case, I'd double check your facts. Someone before you thought differently. Check the flow of roads into and out of the road you plan to change. Bottom line. Be sure you're right, then go ahead and make the change.

Yes! I'm done mapping the area you guys gave me. I want more!

Way to go! Congratulations!!

just send us an email to alpha@waze.com with your username, your email address, a Super Permalink on the update map screen (!!) of the area you want to add (use the maximum zoom level, meaning go as far as possible and then hit the Super Permalink button) and additional information that will might help us (cities name, regions etc.). We will send you an email once your new area has been added.

Update requests templates

Adding new roads

Hi, The mapping in our project is done by the users, who record the GPS data while driving. In order to add a new street/road/exit etc, you need to record it as you are driving through the area. While the Waze application is running, press 7 (record mode). To edit the details of the road you recorded, you need to enter http://www.waze.com/cartouche/index.html the following day (with your user name and password) and edit the road you created. For further information read our Forum and Wiki.

Thank You for the update,
