kazmuth, sayang kung hindi gagamitin ang OSM kasi ang dami na ng mga kalsada dun sa pinas at ang mga contributors sa OSM ay mga GPS hobbyists talaga, who dont rely on online maps to draw maps. majority is from actual GPS tracks. waze is already using POI databases from other apps naman like foursquare, so sana lang naman marealize nila na mas madali iyon.

i actually promoted waze sa yahoogroup ng waypoints.ph. its a group of gps enthusiasts pero parang di sila interesado.

yung isang road na madaming segments kailangan lang yata siguraduhin na yung arrow at the end (when you click it) should be green towards the next segment. pag red, malamang hindi talaga iroroute duon. pero i checked yung sinasabi mo, parang may maliit na line na nakapatong sa isa pang line which is not connected to the previous segment dun sa intersection ng kalayaan/cp garcia. baka kaya nalilito sa routing.


@dhageuk it seems that we both edited the same segments :) pano kaya mangyayari nyan? taga cavite ka din?

if you see the ramp going to bacoor, yung name nya is the road itself as well as yung exit. i decided to name it that way para sa traffic reporting na din. ok lang ba kung ganyan? also.. if going out of a highway i used a ramp instead, kasi magsasabi ng "exit at left" yung navigation guidance kung pupunta ka dun... any thoughts?
given that, whats the best name for this halimbawa?
https://world.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&lat=14.59221&lon=121.05995&layers=BFTFTTTFTTFTTTTFTTTTT
also, i see <roadname> (NB) and also <roadname> N and <roadname> (N), which is pareho lng ang meaning. ano sa tingin nyo ang mas maganda and malinis tingnan?


mukhang tama yung same name as the road itself + exit name, ganun din nakikita ko na ginagawa nila sa US freeways. dun sa isa naman, standard yung N, S, E, and W kaysa NB, SB, EB, at WB.

Isa pang question ko sana yun, kelan tayo mag-split ng road? ang hirap ng maintenance ng split roads kaysa dun sa two way lang

this ability to edit the map is both a boon and a bane. accuracy and consistency are both compromised. kaya pala hindi makakita ng route kasi yung mga kalsada, although it looks ok sa phone, sa map editor pala eh putol-putol and yung junction does not allow entry to the next segment. ibig sabihin, hindi pinagaralan nung nag-draw ng map kung pano ang tamang paggawa ng mga kalye. Kaya for routing, highly unreliable ang waze. For traffic updates, konti pa ang users dito sa atin to get complete traffic situations for your way to work or home or wherever. Kanina, medyo accurate yung ETA ko sa bahay, kasi nagaadjust din sya ng ETA kung nagkakaron ng heavy traffic sa dadaanan.

i hope the developers can integrate Garmin or Open Street Maps.


Mas malinaw yung sa google maps kasi google images yung nandun, mas ok yung resolution at mas updated yung maps nila. yung gamit ng waze ay Bing map images na medyo hindi updated at mukhang malabo.

Tama ka na kaya hindi maayos yung routing kasi kulang kulang yung streets at junctions, kaya una ko ginawa ay inayos ko yung mga routes na dinadaanan ko. ngayon medyo accurate na yung routing nya, although C5 at edsa lang naman kadalasan dinadaanan ko. pag wala ako ginagawa i try to edit the maps within my area. pag natapos ko yun sa ibang area naman para maging complete na yung maps natin.

kailangan pa dumami ang waze users dito sa atin at pati na din map editors para maging accurate at reliable yung information nya. unfortunately yung mga ibang users sa umpisa lang yata, after a while nakakatamaran na mag-edit or gumamit ng waze.

mukhang malabo yung integration with other gps apps kasi parang stand alone app talaga ang waze. ngayon ginagamit ko na lang yung built in gps nung kotse ko pag wala sa waze maps yung pupuntahan ko. nagustuhan ko yung real time traffic updates at routing nya, kahit na hindi pa ganun kadami ang nagrereport.

sa map editing, kailangan siguro may standard convention tayo na sinusundan para pare-pareho yung pagkaka-edit ng maps dito sa atin. For example, ommission of 'Street' or 'St.' from street name, unless hindi sya street like 'Road', 'Lane', 'Drive', etc. Another siguro is yung to use or not use shortened names like 'Ave.' for 'Avenue', 'Blvd.' for 'Boulevard', 'Hwy' for 'Highway', etc. This would be for easy searching of street names and accurate routing. may nabasa ako na waze treats roads with different names as different roads like 'Marcos Highway' is different from 'Marcos Hwy' and therefore may use a different route. Nakikita ko ito sa C5 when waze routes me to take Kalayaan Ave. instead of going straight to Market-Market because the roads are differently named. Another would be road types, which ones are major or minor highways, primary streets, etc.

zoom out para maging malinaw resolution, parang may bug pa yung editor na kailangan zoom in/out para maging maayos yung display.

yung "pave road" para dun sa mga roads na hindi pa existing sa map sa client app display, it gets submitted to the server but it does not get displayed to others immediately. you can see it on your map editor but the other users will have to wait until it gets processed into the main map tiles. this year there has only been one update and that was last January 30 and the updates that were included were those done before January 14.

There was another scheduled map tile update scheduled yesterday according to the waze status page http://status.waze.com/

napakalabo naman ng map resolution. :evil:

when i use "pave road" on my phone, does that get submitted as an edit on the map? or ako lang ang makakakita nun?
