Indeed, and much of this we cannot edit any more as it was done in Cartouche and WME does not display huge landmarks. (unless they changed this since Cartouche was retired, I haven't looked and cannot at the moment)

Peacehaven, East Sussex - can't do a permalink at the moment as the editor's down.

+1 for Portsmouth and its 200,000+ habitants which all live under the sea according to the live map. The whole of the city is not on land!

Sure, it's only like that on the live map and not the mobile client but its still a poor show really when you consider the level of accuracy we try to map to. It doesn't encourage new comers / general users to utilise the full Waze experience (like checking the live map for traffic before you head home from work).

I'm not exactly sure about how this might be fixed, if it's even possible from the WME, anyway I found it rather funny to be driving through the North Sea. I pity the poor folks who live there, not least because they live in Lowestoft.

Seems much of Norfolk is also under sea between The Wash and Great Yarmouth, including but not limited to Heacham, Hunstanton, Sheringham Cromer & Bacton.

I need to check, but last time I was there Biikenhead is really bad for that.
