Information related to using Waze in the State of xxxx.

Cities and Towns

There are 351 Cities and Towns in the state. See Massachusetts Cities and Towns for proper naming information.

Major Roads

See Road Naming (USA), Road Types (USA) and xxxx Roads By Type

Landmarks

Landmarks in xxxx should follow the guidelines from the state of Connecticut until the national standards are complete.

Major Construction Projects

See the xxxx forum for a list of long term road closures and changes to traffic flow that impact the Waze Map.

Special Roads

Alleys

  • Alleys should always be mapped if they have a name.
  • Alleys should always be mapped if they are the sole access to a home or business.
  • Alleys should always be set to "Private"
  • Alleys are normally mapped if they are acknowledged by the municipality.

If an alley does not meet the above criteria, mapping is optional. Leave the name field blank.

Non-Driveable Roads

Generally, if a path can't be driven on (e.g. Walking Trail, Pedestrain Boardwalk, Stairway, Railroad, Runway/Taxiway) then it not normally mapped. If it is mapped, it should not be connected to any roads. This is due to the way the routing engine works, as Waze will route users to drive on these "Non-Driveable" road types.

It is permitted to map Railroads since some users run Waze while on the train and contributing false data to the system. This false data has been known to effect drivers on adjacent roads. Railroads should be level -5 and locked at the highest level of the editor.

Time Restricted Turns

There is beta testing for setting Time Based Restricted turns in WME. Watch for announcements in the forum on this feature

Speed / Red Light Cameras
