There's at least 10,000 active Wazers who are in GB, probably more. :)

Can you count unique over a week? I understand there are circa 400k registered UK (inc NI) wazers so if only 10k or so are actively using that's a little disappointing!

That is due to the statistical insignificance of map-editors. Given any population of 1.000 wazers, there might be 1(one) mapeditor lurking among them, or not.

Sure it wasn't a cow with a cell phone? This is upstate NY we're talking about after all. :lol:

There's some, AMs even, and seem to be following the wiki, they just don't post in the forums for whatever reason. And IGN seems active and doing correct work, but they don't close URs (good thing).

It seems like about 5-10% of the URs so far are inside the 500m limit, which has been covered in the other thread having to do with UR traces.


Speaking of IGN, I finally came over some of their edits. They seem nit-picky. They pick one section of a road, then update that one section, and leave. Then I come along a year later, find that the rest of the road is a basemapped nightmare. No wonder why they left my area for a year . . . and still haven't come back from what I've seen.

IGN appears to work primarily on MPs, sometimes those coincide with URs so it looks like they are working URs. They also seem to work with the philosophy of minimum changes needed to fix the MP, which is also fine since they're not local editors and only have the possibly outdated aerial, MP trace, and the currently out of date GPS layer to go on.

Tonight there were over 400 (don't remember the exact number) here in the Philadelphia area.

Useful automatic traffic avoidance seems to start kicking in around 300-350. From this I would say that critical mass for really working well at rerouting is around 600-700.

Places like SF and LA *should* be outstanding if it weren't for their non-freeway maps being in such bad shape.


Although there is also the factor of how large the metro area is, how many roads there are with frequent traffic, etc.

And as we know areas with HOV/carpool lanes are highly problematic for proper jam reporting since the Waze can be snapped to the incorrect lane (freeway vs. HOV). (LA and Orange County have many)

I still can't understand why the number of active Wazers does not correspond more closely with the number of editors. LA and Orange county seem to be in dire need or more active map editors.
