Banks of Servers

removed URLs for different server banks
Waze uses at least three different banks of serversgeo-located for best performance globally.  When panning around the [http://www.waze.com/livemap|Waze livemap], the system automatically switches to the server infrastructure for the area you are viewing. The Waze Map Editor does not switch automatically. You need to use the infrastructure selector menu, found at the top-right corner of the page. This menu is not visible in full-screen mode, so if your [[Map Editor Interface and Controls#Map_Editor_Tool_Bar|editor toolbar]] is all the way at the top of the screen, use Shift+F to get out of full-screen mode. The WME Permalink also contains a switch for the current server infrastructure onscreen, but it is not yet functional. The current Permalink URL values are:
{| class="wikitable sortable" style="background:none; font-size:100%; margin: 1em auto 1em auto" border="1"
|- align="center"
! Area of World
! Alternate Name! Server URL&env=
|-
| USA & Canada
| North America| http:<nowiki>usa<//www.waze.comnowiki>
|-
| Israel
| (none)| http:<nowiki>il<//www.waze.comnowiki>
|-
| Rest of the World
| World| http:<nowiki>row<//www.waze.comnowiki>
|}
These function independently of each otherFor example, so please specify which one you use when asking questions or reporting issuesthe URL for Johannesburg, South Africa is <nowiki>https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=3&lat=-26. Note the 19321&lon=28.04383</nowiki>'''&env=row'''  NOTE: The servers in Israel are being migrated to the World servers and will eventually be taken down. 
== Overview ==
You may find map changes in one server for an area covered by another. This might make you think you are on the right server, but that area is not kept in sync with the primary server. At this time that area is not used by the client app and serves no purpose so do not bother making any changes to it.
If you visit http://www.waze.com , it should automatically switch you to the correct server. In case the server does not correctly forward you to the right server (for example [[Dashboard]] or [[Map_Editing_(new_Editor)Waze Map Editor#Editing_Manual|Waze Map Editor]] is not showing the correct amount of points or routes), use one of the links above.
