When working on this, maybe refer to what Krankyd refers to as the azimuth as the lens direction to make it easier to understand :) 'Point the lens of the camera photo towards the direction of traffic that is being photographed.'

WOW - just took a closer look. Tons of detail.

How much time did you spend on this so far? Impressive!

Per my last post, if we can somehow figure out how to give some basic information to new editors without making it overwhelming into they get a chance to dive in, that would be great. Maybe a section titled 'for new editors' 'getting started' etc. Very simple, but with links to more information in the editing manual that open in a new tab.

Just a suggestion.

Thanks for getting this started!

I haven't looked in detail yet, but I envision a section of the new manual that is covers common editing issues and that is geared towards new editors. Easy to find and very simplistic. Such as:

* How to update a street name (with link to naming convention)
* How to correct one-way streets
* How to correct allowed and restricted turns
* How to add missing streets (this one of course is more involved)
* How to junction a road
* IMPORTANT - The 4 basic steps to editing - add road, name, junction, set allowed turns.

Sure, I should contribute to the Wiki myself. Haven't gotten that far yet :cry:

So what is the official name of the editor? Going to be keeping the old name of Cartouche? Very confusing...

It is as simple as going to http://www.waze.com/editor, logging in and editing. Just do forget to study the wiki to know what and how to edit.

OK, then you've possibly already found the way.

By making useful map edits and adding a value to the map for quite some time. The local editing community will notice you.

Why is a toll road not a map problem?

I am sure there is. Since you're already looking ... why don't you add that in? ;)

Would do but I wasn't sure where best and didn't want to taint your hard work! ;)

Will take a look.

Nice work, Alan!

We do need to be careful when it comes to things like naming conventions as there are country specifics at this level of detail!
