Coastal Area Problem on Live Map

Postby cherianchris » Sun Nov 18, 2012 9:02 am

Dear Wazers,

Please go through the attached screenshot. The area is a coastal area and the roads near the coast appear to have been flooded by the sea. On the client, the entire area is blue. I have checked the landmarks, and the city names but haven't found anything amiss. Please help me with this strange problem.

Happy Wazing !

Let us know if you see weird "submerged" streets or anything like that.

Ori,

Based on the Lat / Long display on the livemap, it seems to be Chennai, India.
This should do the trick : https://world.waze.com/editor/?zoom=4&lat=12.95464&lon=80.25753&layers=BFTFFTTTFTTTTTTTTTTTTFT

Hi,

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..

You can practice on the Dutch coastline, much shorter ;)

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.
