Nothing. Go to sleep, watch some TV. And then enjoy running the Waze app the next day. Eventually, there will be very little mapping for any of us left to do. That will be a good day.

Ramps from freeways? No.

Grab the Highlighting extension and clean up the reverse connectivity, unknown directions, missing terminal nodes, u-turn segments, update exits to conform to the naming standard, find nearby unincorporated areas where roads are still basemapped and get rid of all the superfluous segments and geometry nodes.

Sorry, meant trigger the exit left/right per the wiki. Not turn instructions on exits.

China does not have a Base Map. I was surprised to learn that from the Chinese Wazers, because in India, even the tiniest street is present on the WME.
You could head down over there and help them out.. ;-)

I was told you can get a larger area to manage if you submit permalinks in a rectangle, but I'm not sure how to do this.


The fastest way is to just zoom out on the editor screen as far as it can go, center it on the area(s) you want to manage, and what you see is pretty much you'll be able to manage.
