So that is why the number of Wazers looks to be very low all across Europe per Wazestats. Waze really needs to provide an API to the actual data for this to be accurate.

Exactly. I tried doing the same for the whole of the UK, but found that only a subset of users appeared on the Livemap, and Waze confirmed this to be true. In fact, there's one particular driver I know who uses Waze all day every day, but he never ever appeared on the Livemap.

I've since discarded my stats as a wasted effort. The only thing it's good for is to show general daily and weekly trends.

Number of local Wazers at rush hour

Postby top_gun_de » Wed Oct 10, 2012 5:38 am

Is this function retricted to the NA-server? I have never seen this in Germany.

Anyway, 30+ would be an achievement, despite the map improvements over the last year.

Best regards,

I've seen around 75 here in San Antonio. I do know that there are 2 other active editors (me and another one are in constant battle over the classification of 3 major roads in the city), as well as 2 other people who are driving around the new neighborhoods around San Antonio (this city is growing fast). Every couple of days, I see new red roads that need to updated to STREETS and at least labeled with the city. It's taken me 3 weeks straight to knock out all of the little things in San Antonio and I know the other 2 editors are about that new, too.

I've also noticed a lot of Wazers that live in San Antonio and commute to Austin, so those who live in New Braunfels and San Marcos would probably see a lot more during rush hour.

In the US I believe it was confirmed to align with the Metropolitan Statistical Areas defined by the US govt. These were the same entries that used to be visible on the home page where you could see how "complete" an area was in terms of map maturity and users.

Jason, I don't feel so bad about Knoxville now seeing your evening numbers. At 10 pm eastern:
28, 2, 3. And that used to be a high count for here around rush hour!

As far as I remember, in the US it is based on metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) as defined by the Census Bureau.

Seems to be the first 5 or so seconds for each statistical metro area you travel through. When I travel long distances I'll get that pop up on occasion, I assume when I hit each new region. If you only stay local, then you'll only see the initial pop up for "entering" your home region.

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.)
