Coverage of less densely populated areas

Postby White-Ka » Tue Oct 15, 2013 2:20 pm

I have been thinking about how to get WAZE coverage complete in the more “remote” parts of the UK. Obviously, there are fewer drivers per square mile, and probably fewer traffic delays as well, so the number of active Wazers and potential map editors will be small to non existent.

However, there are people in the remote areas who would like Wazers to visit them, and so might be prevailed upon to improve the Map in order to assist Wazers to find them. They are tourism business owners, eg B&B, crafts people, etc.

Would offering them “free” advertising pop up displays in return for map edits be worth considering? There will probably not be many Wazers passing them, so paying each month, in money, to advertise on Waze may not appear worthwhile to them, but improving the map, to make it easier for Wazers to find them, and getting some advertising in return might induce them to put in the effort.

There is of course, the problem that they are so “remote”, that there are no roads for them to update, eg Balsporran Cottages, PH19 1AF. [UK]

A better example is the house in the centre of https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=row&lo ... 469&zoom=6 which I know is a B&B.
