Getting started with Map Editing
- Waze uses two different map editing interfaces.
- The Waze Map Editor (WME) is the primary editor. It was previous known by it's 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.
- When editing the Waze maps, please follow the best map editing practice.
- Looking for advanced editing permissions - apply to become an Area Manager
