Seems like Sri Lanka to me.

Karan, don't get too stressed or upset about incomplete places or segments. Waze is a collaborative effort. Not everyone has the details of every location like address or name etc. That's why some people add landmarks and roads etc while others can drop in and complete the information if they have it. That's what we all do. I don't always have the details of a gas station or the name of a park, but if the landmark exists, someone else can pop in and fill out the details.

I admire your passion for attention to detail, Karan. It's an invaluable trait in this community and you should use it as much as you can. But let's all work together and be the strengths for each other's weaknesses. That's the key to having good maps, good routing and a good community at Waze.
Wazers, keep on Wazin'!

Hey,

I have been facing this problem since a long time
Here is the Permalink of a landmark in Pune (College of Engineering)
https://world.waze.com/editor/?zoom=4&lat=18.52475&lon=73.85163&layers=BFTFFTTTTTTFTTFTTTTTTFT&landmarks=194606

Its been set incorrectly as "School/Kindergarten" instead of "University/College".
Whenever I try to correct it and save it, it says "Error while saving. Please try again."

I am one of the Area managers of Pune and I thought that I could edit it but it just doesn't allow me to save it.

I see that its locked and last edited by Admin. Could this be the reason for this thing not being editable?

Can anyone help me in this regard?
If you can fix it that would be great but please let me know what could be the reason for this error.

Hi All,

I got two queries:

1. Abbrevation pronunciation for Indian streets on Waze App:
Many streets in India have some abbrevations that the Waze App doesn't pronunce correctly.
Such as
a. "Dr." is pronunced as "Drive" (Which is right according to the TTS wiki), however in India its actually referred to as "Doctor", as in "Dr. Ambedkar Rd" or "Dr. Kelkar. Rd."
b. Few of the roads in Pune (haven't checked in other places) have "Marg" at their end, kindof meaning a path. However, Waze app pronunces this as "Marginal" or something of that sort. "Marg" is nowhere mentioned in the TTS Wiki as well.

My question is what should be the ideal way of naming the streets in such cases? Should they be corrected according to the way Waze pronunces it and keep the original name in "Alternate name" fields? Or is there any other way.

2. Regarding Naming conventions on Major Highways:
According to the India Wiki http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/How_ ... Convention, every major/minor national/state highways are to be named "from Major town to Major town".
If the highway is already split into two-way streets, should each street be named according to the direction it is going?
For Ex. Street going from Pune to Satara be named as "Pune - Satara Hwy (SH 84)" and street going from Satara to Pune (next to the one described above) be named as "Satara - Pune Hwy (SH 84)"? or should they both be named as "Pune - Satara Hwy (SH 84)"?
In the first case the incidence report will show exactly in which direction the traffic is jammed/moving, while in the second case, we only know that there is a jam but in which direction is not much clear.

Chris,

I came across a wired problem,
I was trying to update a name of the street but couldn't find the street name option on left panel, after selecting the segment of the street, it was just the name of the city.

Regards
SK
