I am just new to the Waze community.

Need some help regarding the map editing and general practice.

I have gone through the wiki, forum as well ... From past 2 weeks or so I am doing that only! ;) but didn't get the hang of it!

Thanks



Welcome to the community Geetanjali. I know it can be a bit confusing in the begining, but as they say practice make man (& woman) perfect. Just keep on editing and you will slowly realise how it works, later when you realise you had made a mistake earlier then you can always go ahead and correct it. As you mentioned you have already been through forums, still here are the two links which may help you understand some stuff.


viewtopic.php?f=171&t=37277


viewtopic.php?f=171&t=9230

In the first link Chris has already discussed with Indian wazers and has concluded upon the mapping guideline on POIs, and in the 2nd one Darryl-BHP has suggested and then a discussion has happened upon road policy to be followed in India, these will be really helpful to start with.

Also in the forum we have some active wazers who are always happy to help, Chrianchris is the country manager, so if you have any locked segment and you know that its not correct or has changed since the last edit then you can contact him and he can unlock it for you, you just have to send a permalink to him.

Then there is sk2380 who is ranked second in our country after Chris and will also be able to help you with any issues.

After these two there are some active wazers like Parithosh, Lunarplexus and yes me too who are active on forum and can help when you need one. But remember that always paste the permalink because that will help the others to identify the segment.

Take care and happy wazing :)

Nice to meet you, man. Thanks for the encouragement. I'm trying to promote the app as much as I can now but people turn away because it's not quite up to the mark yet. But since we can see its potential, I guess it's up to us to make it awesome.

:)



Yes i did :)

There lies the problem... people don't stick around long enough to realize its potential. Together the few of us who are there can make a difference and even i feel the same. Lets see how successful we all dedicated editors can be.

lunarplexus wrote:Hiya there everyone!

I've been Wazing for a few months and editing for even fewer months but I'm totally hooked. I've managed to climb the ranks pretty quickly and am quite happy with that.

I'm glad to get your help in making edits more accurately and consistently.

It's also great to see more and more Wazers on the streets. Gives me hope that this will be the top urban sat-nav app in India at some point. We sure do need it.

:)


Hi lunarplexus,

Welcome to WME... Have seen you once in kolkata... i guess you travel a lot.

Yes we definitely need a lot of hands in editing as theres a lot of work in the map of india, its just that waze needs more exposure in india. The best thing is that now the regular wazers can meet up here and discuss any issues and queries that one might have over here. Take care and happy wazing :)

I request all New Indian Wazers to make a post, that we may know and welcome you. :)

Please do take the time to go through the Forum, as 95% of all known issues and their fixes are mentioned here.



Hey Chris good to have this topic for all India wazer, by the way last night i sent you a beep beep and a message not sure if you got it. Paritosh sent me a test message but then i came to know he is using the Google play version, will test with him again after he installs the beta version.

I have a query regarding alignment of segments according to the roads. My query is that the roads i see in Rohini, Pitampura, NSP & adjoining areas in Delhi are not aligned as they should be. For instance the segments we create over the roads to map them are not actually over the roads. Either sometimes they are going over the houses or over some buildings. I have been doing alignment of these segments according to the roads for the past two weeks & have also done many Sectors in Rohini. But after seeing every adjoining area to my neighborhood in that condition raises my doubt that if it is normal or is it to be corrected ?


Hi Tushar,

I hope i got your name right ??? anyways regarding the alignment of segments even i have seen that in the begining and i too started aligning them. The best thing would be to switch on the GPS layer and check it if its in the given range because if you align now and if there is Bing map layer update then you may again see a misalignment. So a little misalignment within the range of GPS plottings is fine according to me. Lets wait for our CM, Mr. Chris to put forth his views.


Ya man, you got my name right, thanks 4 replying, i switched on the GPS layer as you suggested during editing. but what about the streets which have no layer data. Here's the thing i was talking about. The area is Pitampura in Delhi & you can clearly see segments going over houses...

Hi,
Just joined Waze a month ago, was using Google Maps before that but when i started using Waze, i stopped using Google cuz its just like any other Navigation App but Waze is truly awesome. I have been editing Maps daily for about 10 days now, wish i could have known about it earlier. But i really want my area of editing to be increased because i know my neighborhood very well & 1 mile doesn't seem enough. I believe in quality editing no matter how much time i take to get it perfect. I hope i'll reach next level soon & we guys really need to spread the word like promoting in schools & colleges, i think people will find it fun once they get to know it...
