USA Texas.png



This page serves as the primary resource for editors of

Texas. Review all the sections to better understand how the guidelines for this state might deviate from the overall USA or worldwide guidelines. If you have any comments or questions about this page or state refer to the community links below.




Introduction


Texas is a part of the South Central region, which includes the states and/or territories of:

Arkansas / Louisiana / Mississippi / Oklahoma / Texas.
THIS PAGE IS NOT USED. PLEASE GO HERE.


Mapping resources


Media-book-and-disc.png

Before editing the maps in

Texas, be sure to fully review and understand the editing manual.

The Waze user community follows the Waze etiquette guidelines discussed in the Wiki. Be sure to familiarize yourself with these guiding principals while editing the maps and this Wiki, as well as when communicating with other Waze users.



Community


People-in-forum.png

The Waze forum is a great place to find answers to previously asked questions and also a place to ask new ones. Below are links to the forums specific to

Texas.

Area Managers for Texas can be found in the table below.

New editors should consider checking into the formal mentoring program available at no charge.


Cities and towns


House.png

One of the most common errors when editing the maps is when an editor creates a road and does not confirm the road by setting the city and road name (or stating it has none).

Duplicate cities can be caused by incorrectly named segments and should be corrected following the guidelines in the duplicate cities article.

There are 6386 Cities and Towns spread across 254 counties in the state. See Cities in Texas for proper naming information.


Major roads


4lane road icon.png

Texas follows the general road naming and road type guidelines of the USA.

Road naming

Interstates = I-XX
US Highway = US-XX
State Highway = SH-XX
Farm/Ranch to Market = FM XX
County Road = CR-XX

Interstates throughout the state

  • I-2 Rio Grande Valley
  • I-10 New Mexico to Louisiana
  • I-20 Midland/Odessa to Louisiana
  • I-27 Lubbock to Amarillo
  • I-30 Fort Worth to Arkansas
  • I-35 Mexico to Oklahoma
  • I-35E Hillsboro to Denton through Dallas
  • I-35W Hillsboro to Denton through Fort Worth
  • I-37 Corpus Christi to San Antonio
  • I-40 New Mexico to Oklahoma
  • I-45 Galveston to Dallas
  • I-69 Brownsville/Edinburg/Laredo to Texarkana (will follow US-59)
  • I-369 Spur to west side of Texarkana
  • I-410 Loop around San Antonio
  • I-610 Loop around Houston
  • I-635 Spur through DFW Metroplex
  • I-820 Loop around Fort Worth 

Functional classification

Texas is participating in the new Functional Classification in a limited capacity. Cities/areas with a population greater than 250,000 will be turned over to functional class. At this time, rural towns and rural Texas are to be left alone. See Texas/FC for details


Special roads


Drivable roads

Texas follows the standard USA guidelines for all of the following special road types.

Non-drivable roads

Review the Wiki guidelines for non-drivable roads to ensure compliance with the general guidelines.

Specific Texas guidelines

  • Be sure to know when not to split a two-way road
  • FM Roads not grouped into functional class are to be set to  Primary Street  east of US-281 and north/east of I-37. All other FM roads are set to  Minor Highway .
  • Dirt Roads. In Texas ALL roads that are normally unpaved are considered dirt roads as this is how GPS Nav users (any brand) expect the "Avoid Dirt Roads" feature to behave. These roads should be deleted when going through farm land, ranch land, or mountainous areas throughout the state, as they are most likely base import roads and not real roads.
  • Frontage roads not classified as  Primary Street  by functional class are to be classified as  Street . They are also to be labeled "Frontage Rd" unless the corresponding highway has an alternate name. I-635 Frontage roads are labeled as "Lyndon B Johnson Freeway" as that is the local name for I-635.
  • Parking Lot Roads do not need to be mapped for every lane inside.
  • Alleys and driveways are NOT MAPPED
  • All freeways are set to ground level. If two freeways cross each other, look at the actual intersection to discover the layers of the intersection.
  • U-turns are labeled as "turnaround."

Military bases

Texas has a long standing tradition for support the US military. If you have questions concerning any military base in the state, please do not hesitate to ask. All military bases in the state are set to the current private installation standard.

  • All gates at the military bases are set to private road in/street out with some gates having restrictions on them for the various gate closures.
  • If you know of any changes in the hours of a gate, please let a US Champ know and they will adjust it accordingly.
  • All gates are locked at a rank of 5 or 6.

Landmarks approved for military bases are:

  • Commissary
  • PX/BX
  • Gas stations
  • Parks
  • Museums


Closures


When managing a section of roadway under construction or being closed for a major event, follow the Wiki guidelines on construction zones and Real time closures.

See TxDot for a list of LONG TERM road closures & changes to traffic flow that impact the Waze map.

  • I-35: Contact User:Pjlasl as the lead editor for changes between Austin and DFW


Places


Texas follows the USA standard for Places. Do not deviate from the guidelines without first obtaining consensus to do so via the state forum linked on this page.

See Texas/Test/Places for guidance in Texas that may not be universal to all other states and territories.


Cameras


Not every camera-looking device at an intersection is a speed or red light camera. Generally speaking:

  • Camera2true.png
    Rlc truvelo speed cam.jpeg
    a speed camera takes a photograph of a vehicle when it passes by the camera at too high a speed.
  • Camera4true.png
    Rlc white.jpeg
    a red light camera takes a photograph of a vehicle that enters an intersection after the light is red. In some areas, it takes the photograph when a vehicle is not clear of the intersection some period after the light turns red.

Be sure to know your cameras before accepting new camera reports.

When adding a camera, be sure to review the camera placement recommendations.

Laws regarding speed and red light cameras vary between the states and territories, so be sure to understand the details of camera legality in

Texas.


To do list


To do list.png

Many states and territories keep an active list of pending or closed actions that need to be done in the state by the editors. All editors are welcome to contribute to the list of activities.

Texas does not currently have a separate To Do list page. Editors are requested to solve the Update requests (URs) in their area.


Area Managers


The table below identifies the editors also designated as Area Managers or higher who are editing in

Texas. If you have any questions, please consider contacting them directly as needed. If you are an Area Manager that covers

Texas, or a USA Country Manager that does a lot of work in

Texas, please add yourself to this list (alphabetical by username) in the correct rank section.

The editor who also serves as the Regional Coordinator for

Texas is automatically listed at the top of the table. That editor may not be highly active in this state and therefore may not be listed separately in the table.
