Here it is the other way around. The live map shows the sea properly (at least for the inexperienced eyes), but the client shows Asia connected to Africa by turning over half the Red Sea into land.

I got some clarification from Waze about this. Shirli says "You are not supposed to notice any change in the livemap until the livemap tiles will be updated (might take some time - tiles are currently updating in the client but not in the livemap due to the new infrastructure)."


Tim,

I drove through the affected area, today, and on the client, the entire area appears blue.

The problem is that in some countries we need to fix the location of borders and coastal area lines.
Following this post, we'll fix all of India's coast line in Waze's maps, going through the entire coast line might take some time though..

Dear Unholy,

If you need my participation, I'll be more than happy to help, to update the coastlines of India.

The thing that confuses me is the message from JonyPony just a few days ago saying all the country polygons had been updated.

Is there confusion between editing boundaries, and visible coastlines? Also, the 'sea' we see in the Livemap is not the same as what we see in the client app.

Hi,

The problem is that in some countries we need to fix the location of borders and coastal area lines.
