→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. 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 methods to remove it. One method highlights the junction and deletes it , one highlights the two segments and bridges them together , and the last method drags one junction on top of the other junction.

The road type is changed by selecting the appropriate road type from the drop down box.
See the [[Road types and names]] for your country for further guidance on selecting the correct road type.
Select the box for toll road if the segment meets the
requirements as outlined under [[ Best_map_editing_practice#Toll_roads|toll roads]].
The direction of the road is changed by selecting the appropriate direction from the drop down box.
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→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→A)."
After the road properties are saved, the direction is indicated by
blue chevrons 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.
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.
