Do Waze Edits Flow Into Google Maps

Postby mblumenthal » Sat Jul 11, 2015 10:25 pm

I am new here so excuse me if this question has been answered. I searched the forums but was unable to find an answer.

Do new road and road segments added to Waze make their way into Google Maps? Do other less significant edits?

Simple answer is no.

Waze provides google traffic info; google provides search functions for the app, and street view in the editor. That's about all the cross platform collaboration.

Not directly, but I have noticed on a few occasions where Google (or someone, anyway) has copied places verbatim.

I know because I made a place to the launch site of the model rocket club here in Memphis, and not a few weeks later, a marker in the exact same spot popped up in Google.

@nzahn1 and bart99gt

Thanks for your answers.

Another source noted to me that Google's internal software for assessing changes, Ground Truth, can see Waze but doesn't integrate data automatically. If that is in fact true it would explain why bart99gt saw his feature taken up in Maps relatively quickly.

I re-drew an intersection about two days before an intersection was complete, a couple days later the intersection in google maps was an exact duplicate. It appeared I had been copied, but if it's true? Not sure...
