A little while back we released a completely revamped version of the Waze map editor, and you veterans are sure to have taken note of the big changes implemented. But for those of you who’ve been thinking about becoming map editors, but have no previous experience, this one’s for you. We’ve produced the video tutorial above to teach you all you need to know before you dive into the world of map editing.
In the clip above, you’ll learn:
- What Waze’s live map is, why it matters & why it needs you
- Waze map editing terminology
- How map problems are detected
- The various kinds of map problems
- Detailed explanation on how to solve all types of problems
It’s a pretty comprehensive overview, but the best place to get the info you need is on the Waze Forum, where you can connect with other experienced editors and learn from them. In many areas around the world, local editors are working together to divvy up the work in their region, so see what’s going on in your area and how you can be a part of it.
Even if you take the solo route, map editing a great way to have a super big impact in your local driving communities, plus earn tons of bonus points at the same time. Even just one edit can improve routing for hundreds, if not thousands, of Wazers nearby, so get out there and make your mark!
