In order to become a member of the CCP, a partner must meet all of the following requirements:
- be a government agency or a private road operator (although Google may make an exception to this requirement at its sole discretion in rare circumstances);
- complete the CCP membership application and execute The Waze Traffic Data API Additional Terms OR execute Google's CCP Contract; and
- possess real-time traffic-related data, and have all of the rights needed to provide the data to Google in compliance with the Waze Traffic Data API Additional Terms.
Partner will not submit an application for membership in the CCP unless it meets all of the above requirements.
The Waze data feed contains filtered data for the specific, monitored area including system-generated traffic jams and user-reported traffic incidents (including jams, accidents, hazards, construction, potholes, roadkill, stopped vehicles, objects on road, and missing signs).
Waze makes its data available for the partner to retrieve through a localized XML or JSON feed that is updated every two minutes. Waze additionally offers a web-interface, the Traffic View Tool, where partners have access to real-time, user-reported incidents and estimated travel time along pre-selected routes.
Partners have access to an exclusive tool for inputting road closures and surfacing major traffic events or emergencies. Partners are also invited to join a partner-only online forum that serves as a hub of collaboration and a space to discuss both strategic and operational issues.
Waze hosted a partner summit that coincided with the launch of the Connected Citizens program in October, 2014, and a second partner summit in April, 2015, in Mountain View, CA. Waze plans to continue hosting regular partner summits to facilitate cooperation between Connected Citizens Partners and to engage in candid conversations about future stages of the Connected Citizens program.
Waze accepts data from partners in a variety of formats (in preferential order): 1) Access to a live feed API (JSON, XML or KML); 2) Data entered directly into the Waze Road Closure Tool; 3) Data entered into the Partner Closure Google Form ; 4) Emails to firstname.lastname@example.org ; and 5) Any combination of the above.
Partners are encouraged to share data on road closures (both scheduled and real-time) and traffic incidents (construction, accidents etc.).
Partner data must contain, at a minimum, the following fields: 1) Coordinates; 2) Street names 3) Description, and 4) [For closures] Start and end time.
