So with that many users, how well does it work for rerouting, or is the map in DC still not mature enough?

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of minimum changes needed to fix the MP, which is also fine since they're not local editors and only have the possibly outdated aerial, MP trace, and the currently out of date GPS layer to go on.

Since we're talking about number of local Wazers...

It seems that Waze just begins to be useful for visually looking at traffic conditions at around 100-150 "near you now" Wazers. 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. :evil:

Fired up Waze at 8:50am to head back to our main office (a little earlier than usual) from New Haven, CT - Waze told me there were over 2300 Wazers Near Me... Needless to say I was impressed... Usually I leave the office around 4am & there is always less than 100 usually less than 50...

Now, how is "Wazers Near Me" actually defined? By State? Within X miles of my current location?
