Visited Mumbai (Powai + Malad + Santa Cruz) yesterday

Postby cshubhra » Thu Oct 20, 2011 3:51 pm

I visited Mumbai yesterday. Mumbai maps are well developed, because I could see some wazers any time I was on the road. I felt though we need to map the roads into proper categories - Like I feel Western Express Highway should have been mapped as a Minor Highway (And not Freeway) as it is a major street within the city. Also, nothing is mapped as primary street. Maybe the AM can do some editing.
My camera battery failed only after 5 shots. However here is one at Powai

Maybe give Waze away for free? Oops, they are already doing that!

Maybe give away free iPhones with Waze pre-installed? Yea, not likely.

Getting waze pre-installed in a phone can be a start. The problem is that people would not start using unless they see value, and people cannot see value unless a lot of users using it

I could recruit only 3 people till date (I have been using for 8 months), and only one of them is a confirmed active user.

Rahul, I will update the road category policy thread based on my theory. We can debate it there.

Well I am one of Area Managers for Mumbai and Pune.
Just a note we are not employees of Waze ;) just a simple wazers like everyone else.

I think, we need to finalize on Road categories for India...
Like what to call free way, what to cal major highway, minor highway and Primary streets...
US or other country definition this types will not work for Indian road...

I guess current road categories are as per populated Base map... currently we are fixing any map issues found... rather than changing types... may be.. as waze users will increase... some one from development team could help is decide road types for India...

Any ideas to increase waze population In India?
