[[File:WmeScreen.jpg|600px]]

[[File:WME-SearchControl.jpg|400px]]
 
===Layers menu=== <!--T:4-->
Top right hand corner contains the [[File:Layers-menu-icon.png]] icon via which the layers / options menu can be requested. With all layers selected the map can look very cluttered. Select only those layers you need for a certain task: like the satellite image, [[Places|places]], [[Road types|roads]], [[GPS|GPS points]] etcetera.
 
===Feed=== <!--T:5-->
Tab on left hand side with a listing of the [[User request|UR's]], [[Map Problems]] and [[Place update request]] in the [[Editable area|editable area]].
 
===Drives=== <!--T:6-->
Tab on left hand side with a listing of the latest drives. Short drives are often added immediately. Sometimes your drive information is not updated the same day, but in the end almost all drives appear in this list.<br />
If you click on a drive the route you followed is displayed, but remember: you have to move the map yourself towards the location of the route.
<br />
===Areas===
Tab on left hand side with links to the [[Editable area|editable areas]].<br />
The areas that are shown are :
* the areas you drove around while using [[Waze app|Waze]] and
* areas you are assigned editing right as for instance [[Area Manager]] and
* temporary areas while taken part in a [[Mapraid]].
 
===Scripts=== <!--T:7-->
Functionality can be added to the WME by installing [[Scripts]]. <br />
The WME tabs can be adjusted with the script [[WME Tab Manager]].
 
===Map servers=== <!--T:8-->
There are currently three waze map servers: IL (Israel), NA (North America) and ROW (Rest of the world).
The Benelux maps are on the ROW server. When you're working in the editor you'll see "row" as part of the URL.
