Editing Resources for the Philippines

  • Editing Resources for the Philippines - a compilation of suggestions and made into a guide on how we should edit our Waze maps for the Philipines. A lot of map issues and update requests are due to incomplete or incorrect information on our map. A lot of these issues could be avoided if we follow the Best map editing practice guide in the wiki. However, some items listed are specifically for our pinoy roads and driving habits.
  • Philippine Waze area-management request form - After reading the editing manual as well as the Philippine Map Editing Guide, you can apply to be an Area Manager in the Philippines using this form. We will send you an email regarding the next steps. If we don't hear from you within a week from our email, we will assume that you are no longer pursuing your application.
