Thank you for the test! I hate speculation (though I do a lot myself) but love facts.

So, if we can exclude landmarks from suppressing traffic. There is only road types left. Plot roads must then suppress traffic? (me speculating)
Do private roads suppress traffic too?
Anything else that could count for report/suppress traffic?
How much below average speed triggers an automatic report?
We know that manual reports don't change routing, it's only for visual alert.

Could we get some proof of that?

I have only played with reporting issue on a PC once and that was in my edit area. Left click in the area on live map you want to report, should get a ballon with origin and destination and report error at bottom.

Editor issue. Somewhere there is a road or landmark with an improper city name. If you have the highlight script, it makes it easy to find.

That would be very good. Especially as some editors map every lane.


Well, if they do this, it won't be an excuse for such a thing and that sort of thing will still be removed on sight by experienced editors. However, it will make PLot roads that are drawn in response to the multitude of system generated map problems much less of a problem. We'll have to wait and see if and how it's handled and then revise the mapping standards as necessary.

No. They come from a third party provider, just like everything else you search for on Waze. (bing, google, etc)

I think it would be great if parking lots did not appear in the client. Can we have them on a separate layer? I think they present a better solution than parking lot roads (which can get pretty nasty looking especially along frontage roads).

(I'm very thankful that I haven't needed to use Waze to get out of any parking lots!!!).

Would the traffic report appear on the landmark, not the road name?


Report would appear on/attached to the road, therefore having the road named GWB would be more useful than if it was named I-95 with a landmark named GWB. Looking at the map, either way would probably work. But we need to think beyond making the map look nice. So to have an alert pop up or show in the list of events in your area and say the name of the bridge or tunnel, we have to apply that name to the road segment(s).

Now that parking lot roads are fixed I don't use parking lot landmarks anymore. You can add in extra roads in cases where a landmark may have been needed before.


You certainly don't need a landmark if you draw the roads. Except in the case of a mall, which is typically marked with a landmark anyway, and is so large and has so few roads compared to paved area, that both are necessary. Might as well make the entire mall and parking lot one big PLot landmark.

That's what I've done for every mall besides Edgewater.
