This userscript allows you to add local images onto the map as background help while editing. This makes it possible to accurately draw roads that aren't available yet on satellite imagery with just a picture or screenshot.[ img ]How to use
The script adds a new tab where you can add new images to the map and find the current list of images already on the map. When adding a new image, you can choose a local file or paste an image from your clipboard. Once you've properly aligned the image and pinned it to the map, it will be stored locally on your computer for future use.
It is possible to export an image and all its properties (location on map, rotation, size, ...) with the "Export image" button when you have an image selected. You can import an image with the "Import image" button that is available if there is currently no image being displayed.Installation instructions
In short: get it from GreasyFork
Userscripts are snippets of code that are executed after the loading of certain webpages. This script does this after the loading of the Waze Map Editor. In order to run userscripts in your browser, you are adviced to use Firefox or Google Chrome.
You will need to install an add-on that manages userscripts for this to work. There's TamperMonkey for Firefox
These add-ons will be visible in the browser with an additional button that is visible to the right of the address bar. Through this button it will be possible to maintain any userscripts you install.
For WME Image Overlays, you should be able to install the script at Greasy Fork
. There will be a big green install button which you will have to press to install the script.
After installing a userscript, you will be able to find it working on the site(s) specified. Do note that if you had the page open before installing the userscript, you will first need to refresh the page.
TamperMonkey will occasionally check for new versions of these scripts. You will get a notification when a new version has been found and installed.Feedback and suggestions
Any issues found can be reported at the GitHub project page
