Adjusting road geometry (nodes): Don't delete nodes that change speed limits
If you have a segment that you need to clear all the geometry node quickly, select the segment and hold down the '''d''' key. Then move the mouse pointer near the geometry nodes you want to remove. With the '''d''' key held down it will automatically delete the node when the mouse hovers over it. To stop deleting nodes, stop pressing the '''d''' key.
When you have a long, straight stretch of road, and there are geometry nodes located along its length, delete these nodes, ''unless'' the node is there to change a speed limit. It simplifies the road segment if you have to adjust it later, lightens the load on the database, and makes it easier to display on the Waze client app.
Once you are certain there is no reason to have the extra junction, there are three two methods to remove it. One method highlights the junction and deletes it, one and the second highlights the two segments and bridges them together, and the last method drags one junction on top of the other junction.

====Road Properties====
{{mboxBelow | type = important| textstyle = color: red;| text = It is important to follow the guidelines for setting road properties established by your [[Countries_and_Languages|country or region]].}}<noinclude>{{Related|Map Editor Interface and Controls #Left Pane with segment(s) selected|Creating_and_editing_road_segments#Road_Properties|Creating and editing road segments #Set Road Type, Direction, and Elevation}}</noinclude>The road segment properties are below the address properties on the General Tab are the road segment properties.
=====Road Type=====
The road type is changed by selecting the appropriate road type from the drop down box.
See the [[Road types and names]] page for your country for further guidance on selecting the correct road type.

=====Road Direction=====
 [[Image:RoadDirectionCB1.png‎|right|frame]]The direction of the road is changed by selecting the appropriate direction from the drop down box. [[Image:RoadDirectionCB1.png‎]]
If traffic may travel both ways on the road, select "Two way." If traffic may travel only one-way on the road in the direction from the [[image:ACB.png]] toward the [[image:BCB.png]] select "One way (A&rarr;B)." If traffic may travel only one-way on the road in the direction from the [[image:BCB.png]] toward the [[image:ACB.png]] select "One way (B&rarr;A)."
After the road properties are saved, the direction is indicated by blue chevrons black arrows on the road.
See the article [[determining one-way streets]] for more information on determining the direction of a road as being one way or two way.
=====Speed limit=====
The speed limit fields are shown for the segment. These fields should be updated with the official speed limit as shown on speed limit signs. The speed limit is shown in either km (Km/h) or miles (mp/h), depending on which unit type is selected in the [[Map_Editor_Interface_and_Controls#Settings_Tab|settings tab]].
In some locations Waze has run a program to predict speed limits and assign the assumption to segments. When a segment has an assumed speed limit, the limit will be ignored by the app until an editor verifies it. WME displays a '''Verified''' check box next to the speed limit field. If you can verify that the speed limit shown is correct, check the Verified box. If you find it to be incorrect, replace the Waze-supplied speed limit with the correct speed limit (there is no need to check the Verified box). Either way, once you save, WME will stop displaying the Verified check box, since it is only needed until verified or corrected.
{{mbox|type=caution|text=Pay attention to the units type displayed next to the speed input field (mph/kph) and be sure to adjust your settings if needed to enter the correct speed.
NOTE: The "Verified" check box will not display when multiple segments are selected, even if they have unverified speed limits.}}
:'''''For more details on speed limits policies and how to enter them, see the [[Speed limits]] article.'''''
=====Road elevation=====
The Road Elevation should be changed where one road passes over another. By default, the Elevation of a segment is '''Ground''' (zero). When two segments overlap but do not actually connect in the real world, the value of Elevation for each segment must be different. This ensures that the Waze problem detection system doesn't flag the spot where two segments overlap as a location where a junction might be needed.
3. Elevation -5 is used for non-drivable roads to help ensure that the routing engine does not try to connect or route drivers from roads onto non-roads by mistake. It acts to prevent false system reporting that the roads should be connected.
See [[Overpasses,_Underpasses_and_Bridges|Bridges]] for more information on elevation.
=====Road lock=====
The road lock menu displays locking levels available to each individual user. In the example to the right, the level 4 editor can assign a lock level of 1, 2, 3, or 4. Once the lock level is saved, an editor of an lower level will not be able to make changes to the segment.
See [[Overpasses,_Underpasses_and_BridgesBest_map_editing_practice#Locking_Segments|BridgesLocking segments]] for more information on elevation. =====House numbers=====[[File:EditHouseNumbers.png|frame|right]]The house numbers is used to create and edit house numbers for named road segments.
See [[Editing_rank#Locked_segmentsHouse_Numbers_in_WME|Locked SegmentsHouse numbers]] for more information on road ranks.
