Current Projects

Pennsylvania Township (completed) & CDP naming harmonization

Pennsylvania is relatively unique in that all area within the state is part of a county subdivision (township, borough or city). Unfortunately, with 67 counties and roughly 2500 townships that created many duplicate names. This resulted in many cities having extraneous numbers appended or some named "Greater XXX Area". Working with other state managers and local CMs. We identified all the incorporated areas that were duplicates and developed a naming system to follow. This provided benefit to end users by provided better search results while resolving city smudges that had existed for many years. This was completed in late 2019

The second phase of the project is to review all existing CDPs in the state and determine which should be included in the Waze map. Due to census bureau changes and attrition, some of the current CDPs that exist on the map are no longer used to any real degree by local residents. Unfortunately this requires subjective decision making as to what to retain and what to omit. This project is ongoing but has been temporarily paused due to new feature releases within WME and the client that take higher priority.
