Lol.. At this rate, with help from Wazers like us, Waze will have an easy time as we do everything for them. From maps->forums->testing.

Gizmo has a cornfield that he uses to test TTS, but I don't think there's any more room there.

When I created it, I didn't intend to have anyone drive on it, which is why I stuck it in the middle of a ranch somewhere in Texas. I've used it quite a bit to ask about various things. I like it out there. I may move it to more remote ranch land further south, but that's the whole purpose of me creating it. :)

The only problem with a sandbox is that it's nearly useless for testing unless you can actually drive on it. But what you're describing is great for demonstrating things to people without interfering with live maps.

No matter where you put it, someone will see it and question it. I had one in the middle of a large lake and I got URs and eventually the attention of one of the developers.

I needed my own sandbox. It beats putting it into the middle of a city and making people wonder about it when they're on their daily commute.

+1 on Area 51!

Best part is it's actually connected to a real road so we can all go there, planning my route now. ;)
Wow, to actually be able to vacation at Waze World!!! :lol:

I am disappointed that there isn't a Mapcat Bowtie ride there.

I can move it. Since I'm a CM now, I've got some bigger land that I have access to, now. I'll take care of that in the upcoming week. As soon as finals are over next week, I'll look into moving it.

There's lots of land available in Nevada and Arizona too, typically not near anything. New Mexico probably too...


Noooo...not random Nevada (or Arizona), please!

I recommend picking an Army proving ground or Naval Air Base. There shouldn't be any drivers there ever. If there are, they won't be there for very long. :D

No problem. Just wondering what it was. I'm just getting started on editing maps and using Waze.
