Introduction to Editing Maps

Waze currently uses the Waze Map Editor (WME) as the primary editor. It was previous known by its development code name of "Papyrus". During the transition to this editor, it was also know as the "New Cartouche."

The previous editor was known as Cartouche and later was also called "Old Cartouche" or "Cartouche_Old."

As of 2011/02/01 it is still available for some functions that are not yet implemented in the new WME, but it is only recommended to be used by very advanced users for very specific tasks. Please post a question in the Waze Support Forums before using the old map editor Cartouche.

Every new editor should ensure they read through the following two articles in the Wiki to be familiar with all the key features of the WME and recommended map editing techniques.

After you spend some time covering the map in the vicinity of your drives, you can consider applying to become an Area Manager.
