Automatic mapping - is this is allowed ?

If you think you've found a bug on the website which isn't specifically an App or Map Editor problem, or have a request for new or modified feature of the Community, Forums, or Waze website, use this forum.

Based on Google, I'd say start here:

Overall, if you're using this script to simply insert your data in a different way (automated instead of manual), there's nothing wrong with it. However, I'm not sure how much is gained... given you have to prepare the data for the script.
Assuming you insert the data manually to the script (as you're not copying / hacking any data), you still have to do some work to get the data into the script. If an editor finds a way to automatically insert data from an external source which is not allowed, we will be able and forced to remove it.

So if I'm understanding this, one could create an automation script that uses either Papyrus or Cartouche_old, and processes public domain GIS data to update country/state/street names, and possibly direction & turns, and this would be allowable?

If so, there is an advantage here, and time saved could be very large for the time spent in development.

Although the GIS system(s) need to provide an API to access their data. In addition, this may not be scalable, useful to others since each government GIS system is likely to be different.

You have seen directionality and/or turn restrictions in GIS systems that you have used? I don't recall seeing layers for this in the few that I have used.
