The following is a nonexhaustive list of edits that should be done in your area, in order of priority, from highest to lowest:* Ensure proper connectivity, directionality, and numbering of Louisiana's U.S. and state highways.** Don't worry about name formattingthe format of U.S. and state highway names, only that just make sure the number is right. {{Username|sketch}} will run a script at the end of the raid to correct the naming format on Louisiana's highways.
* Ensure proper connectivity, directionality, naming, and the existence of other roads.
** GIS, Street View, and aerials, among other things, are helpful here.
** Be careful when deleting roads. Even if a road does not exist in Street View or GIS, that may not be enough reason to delete it—perhaps it's it—consult your team leader or a private road? local host. Only delete roads if they ''undoubtedly '' do not exist.* Add railroads. Many of them have not been added. The railroad Railroad names are usually available in [[#Highway maps|LaDOTD's Parish Maps]].
* Add bridges on all roads except freeways. See [[#Elevation]].
* Add Parking Lot Roads at shopping centers and drive-thrus.
* Add U turns where necessary. See [[#U turns]].
* Add Parking Lot Roads at shopping centers and drive-thrus.
This is not an exhaustive list! If you see a problem, fix it.
'''Anything locked at 5 or 6?''' Please check with a local editor before making changes. Level 5 and 6 editors: consider keeping highlights active for level 5 and 6 locks.
'''Close Hard-to-find geometry nodes.''' We often use "doglegs" to force a "Turn" instruction, instead of a "Stay" or "Exit" instruction, on certain connectors and at certain intersections. This involves a geometry node carefully placed directly next to a junction node, in order to set the correct angle. You may need to zoom in to see this geometry node. Please watch for these if you move any junction node, and be sure to recreate the same angle at the new location.

=== Place editing ===
Places from both editors and trusted users have become a major issue. Misspelled names, incorrect categories, missing addresses (EVERY business place should have an address!!), incorrect locations, and mismatched photos are all over the map. Use the powerful Place Browser (link below) and the information on the [[California/Places | '''Place editing''']] page to get these places correctedcorrect them.
'''==== Gas Stations'''<br>====
All gas stations in Louisiana have already been edited and locked to 4 with parking lot roads. Do '''not''' delete parking lot roads in gas stations!!!
If you find any problems with a gas station, contact a local host.
=== Complex intersections ===
There are many complicated intersections in Los Angeles which should not be edited without consulting a local senior editor, even if the presence of URs seems to indicate problems. Some of these intersections have been carefully refined to achieve the best Waze performance, which can involve years of testing, adjustment, and experimentation. Others are locations which are currently under construction, and daily changes to the physical roads cause Wazers to report problems which will no longer exist by the time our edits could take effect. We have done our best to lock the most important of these intersections to Rank 6. When dealing with URs at these locations, please keep in mind that few, if any, additional road changes are required. Again, please consult with a [[#Local Hosts | Local Host]] before making changes.
=== Toll roads, HOV, etc. ===
There are no toll roads or HOV lanes in the Raid area.
=== Left turns at intersections without traffic signals ===
=== Construction ===
A number of construction projects are underway in the Raid area. Some of these involve road closures. If you learn of any road closures that have not been entered on the map, contact {{Username|sketch}}. LINKS: See [,roadReports,weatherWarnings,ferryReports Louisiana DOT Traveler Information]for closure and construction information.
