Winnipeg and Manitoba Wazers unite!

Postby muchski » Tue Jan 19, 2010 3:57 am

Hey everyone! I have noticed quite a bit of people using waze in our fantastic province and thought I'd start a subthread here for anything relating to Waze in 'Toba!

I have created a facebook group a while ago that you are also most welcome to join:
search "winnipeg waze"

Most importantly get as involved as you can! That is the only way we will achieve critical mass here! ---Turn on waze whenever you drive, it will collect invaluable data and provide real time traffic without any effort on the users part!

-And if you see a road missing from the map record a new path, but only do so once, otherwise a million red recorded roads show up on the cartouche aka waze map editor

-Use cartouche to edit road names, geometry, and to connect the roads together which is necessary for navigation to work!

WE CAN DO IT! YOU CAN HELP!

Yeah, the new App invites them to do it... I did mine because I was annoyed by the message. :)

That said, I took a photo of just the house numbers... :)

I just went and updated everything that was correct, rejected a few things. Surprised at how many people who are adding their houses and a picture of their house....

That's good to hear. So who approves additions/changes to places? I added and edited some places. And I also noticed the new CMHR has a typo in the name, "Museam".

Hello, I'm new to Waze and just tried some easy edits to the Winnipeg area map. Is there anyone still approving edits?

Great, thank you for confirming. I was hesitant to fix that until I took a drive over there. Fix the other exit earlier today.

The clover leaf for Northbound Pembina Hwy to Westbound South Perimeter is open again. Just an FYI for anyone high enough to re-open it for routing.

Ok, I'll make the necessary adjustments. However, if I see a UR stating that Waze is trying to direct them down the BRT lane, I will be disconnecting it from the grid again.

Thanks for alerting me to this thread, James. :)

It is generally NOT proper to connect any "non-drive-able" segment types to the regular traffic grid. However, this appears to be more akin to the characteristics of an HOV lane, so it would best fall under the Waze Wiki's guidelines for HOV lanes: "these lanes should be added to the map as separate roads, with the road type as Parking Lot Roads." They should also be connected to the traffic grid at the appropriate junctions (with turn restrictions set to "allowed"); since the type is PLR, they will be ignored by the routing server. The connections will prevent the creation of automatic map problems, while still making allowance for those who are unaware (or who don't care :roll: ) that they shouldn't run Waze while on public transit.
