The City of Toronto has a vast amount of publicly-available data, some of which would be incredibly valuable within Waze :

http://www1.toronto.ca/wps/portal/contentonly?vgnextoid=75d6e03bb8d1e310VgnVCM10000071d60f89RCRD&vgnextfmt=default

The datasets include:

  • Address Points (Municipal)
    The One Address Repository data set provides a point representation for over 500,000 addresses within the City of Toronto. Each address point is described with a series of attributes including street number, street name, address type, feature class and real world coordinates. All address points have a position on the correct side of the street, and are correctly positioned relative to neighbouring addresses. They are positioned within the parcel or the building footprint.
  • Turn Restrictions (!!!)
    This Dataset contains turn restrictions, turn limitations and multi-level crossing.
  • Green P Parking
    This dataset includes Toronto Parking Authority (TPA) information about GreenP and TTC parking lots (off-street parking)
  • Intersection File - City of Toronto
    A geospatial file containing all of the street intersections within the City of Toronto.
  • One Way Streets
    Linear representations of one way streets found within the City of Toronto.

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

Doesn't exist, as far as I know.

Geocoding data sources - your help is needed

Postby krankyd » Mon Dec 31, 2012 3:50 pm

As an ongoing effort to improve our search mechanism, we have started a process of improving the internal geocoding of Waze.
This means, Waze will now have better support for house numbers when you search for addresses, and we have the ability to change and update existing data.

As part of this effort, we're looking for sources and existing databases of geocoding, house numbers, rooftops, parcel data and any other databases that could improve our existing ones.
These could be data sets for purchase, or data that are provided free of charge by one of the governmental offices in your country.

Please forward any leads to:
geocodingsource@waze.com


If possible, please forward a URL to the relevant website and especially the T&C, if they exist.

Many thanks for all of those that have already helped, and for those who will!

Some links to PA resources can be found here:
http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal/server.pt?open=514&objID=637064&mode=2

This site shows all "PA state roads administrative" (roads administered by PennDot):
http://maps.psiee.psu.edu/preview/map.ashx?layer=55

If you're looking specifically for county GIS data, search Google for "XXXX County, PA GIS," and you should find what you need.

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/

Hi,
I am from India. Our government office do have the database for house nos., street names, POI, and so on, but the problem is that we have it in our own regional local language. It's not in English. I have checked some of the websites for the same but no results/option for English conversion.

Any comments or help on this.

Regards

In other words: it's best not to post such leads here -- follow the instructions instead. ;) And if you aren't 100% sure whether your lead might be useful for this or not, just submit it and let Waze decide. :)
