One problem, the Dutch roads are labeled as German. Will this be fixable for users?

As the country field is non-editable (or so it seems), how do we edit them?

Wow, that press release sounds really interesting. Also, because Intermap's technology seems to be the perfect complementary to Waze, thereby making them a perfect couple. :mrgreen:

Let's lean back and wait for news from Waze. I guess it will take some time to import that data into Waze. I hope they tell us soon how this will be done. I.e. how conflicts with existing data will be treated. Anyway, that's great news!

Indeed we have started uploading the Germany and France grid (BASE) maps.
This should not affect map editing in other countries, and sorry about the pop-up message if it's coming up in the wrong place... we will remove it once the process is done.
Right now you can see that there are two sets of roads - the new BASE maps and the USER maps. We will soon start merging the two.

If you do notice problems that this process is causing in other countries, we'd appreciate if you let us know directly by sending an email to alpha@waze.com

I think it's fine to start the test of new maps in smaller (as in "with few users") countries. But once they see everything is working fine, they should really move to high-density areas.

I've personally suspended any further editing of the actual map since I've known about this. I know nothing will be lost during the transition, but since we're almost there… I want to wait for the "real deal" and start working directly on that.

Oh, looking really interesting!
does this mean that we will get 3d maps to maybe, I always loved the way it looks in the navigon navigators :D

and just to scare everyone... does this mean Waze is going payware?

I'm a bit curious about what this will do actually, I havn't even seen aerials yet in my area so all the roads are made from gps points and nothing else, like for many others!

does this mean that we won't have to drive around creating the roads with the "bulldozer" active anymore or what... that's been part of the fun for me! oh and don't take me wrong... I'm really really looking forward to this! Hi quality 3d maps... can't be anything else then fun :D

It has an immediate impact on those of us who are active mappers - I might not want to spend as much time over the next few weeks adding roads if some batch job is about to do it for me, so support - could you let us know what we can expect?
