In preparation for State / Province support in world.waze

Post by
we're finally very (very) close to adding state / province / region support to the cartouche.
Since we want this to be in a drop down menu (instead of free text), we ask that you send us the provinces / states / regions in your country.

Please send alpha@waze.com a list of the regions in your country (you can update this post whether you already sent one for your country to avoid double work by your fellow countrymen).

Please keep in mind these have to be the official states. Any addition in the future will have to be through the waze team (map editors won't be able to add states / regions through the cartouche, at least not at the first stage)

From the point of view of the United Kingdom, I assume you want counties as opposed to the four countries (England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland) that make up the UK.

I will e-mail some information through.

Let's talk about this in the French forum first... because several options are possible.

You can check the administrative division of Poland on wikipedia:
http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podział_ad ... jny_Polski
in english - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Administra ... _of_Poland

The problem is that this division has 3 levels and to fully solve the problems sometimes all 3 levels have to be supported. Anyway - even having the top level (Voivodeships) would probably solve a lot of problems (we can add more info to the city like City_Name (pow. powiat, gm. gmina) but all 3 would be great...

4\/3!!

We in the Philippines have been expecting this as well. Though it looks like this is on hold. Hopefully, this gets some traction again as a lot of other countries will benefit from this.
