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

sk2380.

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

If you want a good sources of address information in the US, search for county (parish) property records. They'll have everything you need about house numbers.

Now that Waze and Google are affiliated -- is this effort still active, or is Waze going to be getting a lot of this information from Google?

Hi baMeow49 -- sounds like a great opportunity for wazers.
I'm not sure the waze team monitors this thread.
Please contact them at geocodingsource@waze.com and they can let you know how to share your data with them.

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!
