Hi,

I'm wondering if you could add more cities outside of capitals? As for France I'm thinking of Bordeaux, Toulouse and Lyon which boast the largest communities outside Paris, something like 1000 users at peak hours.

The last couple of days I've received some anomalously high numbers on the order of 17000 in the Baltimore, Washington area.

Additionally, this morning the statistical graphs started to deliver the more-or-less usual values :?

Over this past week I've been seeing 4000-5000 in Philadelphia and 9000-10,000 when I cross the bridge into New Jersey. Not sure why they're separate, but I suppose there's a reason. Either way, these numbers are basically double what they were less than a month ago, and 4x what we were seeing 9 months back.

NJ is split amongst a few US Census Bureau Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) and that is what the Waze areas are based off of. (Or was it is the Combined Statistical Areas, CSAs? Same impact either way.)

I am seeing much higher numbers here in San Diego in the past couple of days. In addition, I saw more Wazers on the map than the past several weeks. So either there is now a problem that displays too many Wazers near you or Waze actually fixed some problems and the number is now accurate. Who knows.

Over the past year and half, we were observing a steady rise of active wazers here (Czech and Slovak republics). When omitting occasional breaks in the source data, including the recent two months, the climbing rate seems to keep its steepness, or at least the last known level, even while we have holidays with much less wazing users. London, Roma, Riga, Paris, Madrid... as well, maybe one third to half more than some five months ago.

I can imagine that US, with their higher penetration rate, could be observing similarly higher rise of the user base.

But you shouldn't be leaving the Philadelphia–Camden–Wilmington MSA (or the Philadelphia-Reading-Camden CSA) unless you're crossing the bridge at Trenton. I suspect they're using the CSAs as 1) the numbers would be bigger (look better for marketing) and 2) I commute from the Baltimore-Columbia-Towson MSA to the Washington-Arlington-Alexandria MSA (while staying in the Washington-Baltimore-Arlington CSA) without typically seeing any changes in the numbers.

This is actually why I questioned it...I guess it's splitting hairs, but it's the "Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, PA-NJ-DE-MD Metropolitan Statistical Area" which includes 5 counties in New Jersey. I just find it odd that the "Philadelphia" & "Wilmington" areas are combined on Waze while the "Camden" area is separate AND gives numbers 2-3x that across the river. The 5 counties that make up the NJ portion of the MSA don't even equal the population of Philadelphia County. Is it possible that all of NJ is combined together? I get similar numbers when I cross into Mercer County in both the Trenton & Princeton areas.

It really doesn't matter, other than it makes the sixth largest MSA look like it has terrible Waze penetration when I don't think that's the case at all.
