I asked and staff unstickied the thread. So I'm guessing at this point they are no longer adding geo submissions.

Thank-you for sharing what you know.

Should we archive this post if they are no longer adding geo submissions?

You will see I've sent links to the specified address but never had any replies and would like to save others from wasted efforts.

The post you quote is from 2012. The wiki is more up to date. The acquisition by Google has not alleviated the necessity to add house numbers to new roads on the waze map.

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!


Can we get confirmation this post is accurate as the House Numbering Wiki https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/House_Numbers_in_WME#New_roads_must_have_House_Numbers_added says
New roads must have House Numbers added

Waze will not be doing any future imports or merges of external data for house numbers. It is therefore very important that any new roads you add must have house numbers added in order for Waze to provide accurate routing to those addresses.


TLDR; If we don't really need these numbers due to Waze's acquisition by Google can someone let us know so we can officially remove this requirement from the Wiki.

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.

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?
