To Do - Toledo, OH
The area in this To Do list is currently limited to Toledo and the immediate surrounding communities, plus Bowling Green Ohio.
In addition it will also include, I-75 and I-80/I-90 in Northwest Ohio.
Additional areas will be added as volunteer Waze editors make themselves available.
[The information within these charts is very out of date and needs to be updated as editing for most roads listed is now complete.]

Toledo and Northwest Ohio Resources for Waze Map Editing with Cartouche
(Created 18-Nov-2010 by GizmoGuy411, Edited 02-Apr-2011 by "GizmoGuy411" with contributions from "mapcat")
WARNING! DO NOT use data from commercial map sources such as Google Maps which would constitute a copyright violation. Such resources should ONLY be used to help verify information already known or to research issues that may require field inspection. (Commercial maps have been known to incorporate intentional misinformation to help detect when their data has been misused,)
• Waze “To Do” list for the Toledo and Northwest Ohio area: (this page)
• Waze Forum for Northwest Ohio Area: (not yet created) http://www.waze.com/forum/
• Lucas County Auditor ARIES Online:
- Best official resource for Lucas County road names. (Works best with Internet Explorer.)
- To see road name suffixes, be sure to have the Streets, Street Names, and Parcels checkboxes checked for the map, then use the “Indentify” map tool to select a property parcel on the road in question. Information will appear below the map, and the “Data” tab will provide more detail.
- Parcel identification is also handy to determine exact location for a junction when road names change along a road, such as on curved roads.
- Note that the latest aerial image overlays are generally not as current as the underlying map.
- Deleted roads and never built roads may still be shown on the maps for reference purposes.
• Wood County Auditor Map:
- They have a much better interactive map system than Lucas County.
- Best official resource for Wood County road names.
- Use to help resolve multiple mapping issues.
• Henry County GIS Map:
Their county engineer maintains their maps, rather than their auditor.
• Other Surrounding County Auditor Links at Toledo Realtors:
• Federal Highway Administrations's (FHWA) Office of Planning,
Environment, and Realty Executive Geographic Information System (HEPGIS):
- May be useful for identifying road types, county and city boundaries, and other data.
- Note: Map panning seems to work best with Internet Explorer.
• Google Earth:
While this is a program that you must download, it has a few advantages over Google Maps, and other online resources including one distinct feature that provides historical aerial views that include the date of the image. This can prove useful for tracking changes to compare to the Bing maps provided by Waze. Access these images from View > Historical Images or by clicking on the clock icon in the toolbar.
• Google Maps:
- Great for confirming many aspects of the map including road geography by using both aerial images and Street View.
- Street View is also handy to see road direction and road signage. Sometimes you can even zoom in to see road names.
- New map features allows for capture of latitude and longitude with is handy for switching between map sources.
- As 03 10-Mar-2010, aerial views for NW Ohio are the most recent of any aerial views listed here.
• MapQuest Maps:
- Their aerial view have great resolution.
- Also has "360 View", similar to Google Street View, however with much less coverage at the moment.
- As of 10-Mar-2010, aerial views for NW Ohio are the second most recent.
• Microsoft Bing Maps:
- The “3D” aerial images have views from North, South, East, and West, and often were taken at different times, allowing for a good comparison of details and comparison to other aerial images. Excellent resolution for "#D" views. Also see Google Earth for dated historical aerial views.
• Waze Cartouche Map Editor Hints:
- If you click on the “Pending” option in Cartouche and do not see the roads “Pending” deletion window pop up, it may be partially off screen. Scroll to the screen edges to find it. (Often found bottom left.)
- Change zoom levels to reveal nodes hidden by road names.
- Change zoom levels to reveal edits just made but not yet visible.
- Note that the "Live" maps on the Waze website are not updated in sync with the "Update" maps or the client device maps. As of 10-Mar-2011, the graphic map of the Live maps at Waze has not been updated for months. However each zoom level may display different ages of data. Although not visible, the maps edits shown in the "Update" maps may still be identified on the "Live" maps by clicking on the map feature.
- Occasionally certain road segments may become un-selectable during an edit process. If changing the zoom level does not help, then add a temporary new road segment to the problem segment to make it selectable. Once selectable, remove the temporary segment and intersecting node. (This method worked as of 02-Apr-2011)
- When aligning roads with GPS tracks, use the "Color by azimuth" Coloring option to see a better separation of tracks by color, based on travel direction. Note that GPS tracks are only visible at the highest three zoom levels of 5 though 8.
• Browser Hints:
- For me, the Firefox web browser seems to work the fastest with Cartouche, the Waze map editor. The Google Chrome browser works well too, just not quite as fast.
- Google Chrome works best for Google Maps.
- As noted elsewhere on the Waze site, Internet Explorer is not recommended for use with Cartouche.
