Likely not going to be added to the editor. There is information in the Cameras page in the wiki.

Waze map editor : adding speed cams / radars

Postby vince1612 » Tue Apr 09, 2013 2:09 pm

Hi all,

I've tried to use the search tool to see if this was discussed elsewhere but apparently not, and forgive me if it was.

I've started to work on improving the maps in my area (Geneva, Switzerland) and even though I can arrange easily problems I see with roads, when it comes to radars it's really annoying.

Problem 1: I know there is a permanent radar somewhere but I CAN'T add it from the editor
Problem 2: Someone reported an existing permanent radar but chose only speed when it's also red light and I CAN'T edit the type.

This makes it very difficult to correct the many radar errors in my area or to add missing ones without having to actually drive to where they are and report them in the app in case others haven't.

So basically why can't we add radars from the editor directly nor change their types in the editor if the person who reported it got it wrong? And could this feature be added ?

I'm a level 3 editor and area manager if this helps answer (I don't know if this is possible to do with higher levels)

Thanks ;)

EDIT : I added the suggestion on waze.uservoice so if anyone else thinks this should be possible, support the idea here:

Thank you, ;)

I read the page, which confirms they can only be added from the app.

I still think it makes it way too hard for people willing to help improve maps to efficiently correct mistakes or add missing cameras. My area has many mistakes and it seems it was never arranged... Probably because nobody has the time to drive hours around with the app open to fix an entire town's radars.

I hope that one day it'll become possible to manage directly from the editor. Until then I'll do what I can the long/hard/annoying way.
