Wondering how government might be able to help support data/information feeds into WAZE. There exists a data feed of real time data including incidents (i.e. construction, crashes, etc.), available to developers... http://data.xcm.org/

No, that was in one of the initial announcement that the maps are still separate and should not be copied.

So with the Google's acquisition of Waze, has the rule of using Google for a data source been lifted?

Just to keep the forum updated (and minimize repeat info)

I have today emailed the governmental Geocoding data source for Denmark (includes the Faroe Islands and Greenland)

Have a nice day ahead fellow Waze'ers!

In Brazil, the company is responsible is Correios by official names and numbering of streets.
The information is sold through the site (http://www.correios.com.br/produtosaz/p ... F2A0E8DA5F) and the product name is e-DNE.

I sent an email with details to the contact email of Waze.

Googled on the subject and found this site:
http://www.geonames.org

It got postal code info for many countries. But Im unsure if this is the kind of info Waze want.

I agree that your question in this thread is appropriate if you are unsure. However, you may as well submit it to Waze via the email and include your question along with the link. You may get a faster official answer from that and then can post back here.
