*Alleys should always be mapped if they are the sole access to a home or business.

=== Non-Drivable Roads ===
 +
Generally, if a path can't be driven on (e.g. Walking Trail, Pedestrian Boardwalk, Stairway, Railroad, Runway/Taxiway) then it not normally mapped. If it is mapped, it should not be connected to any roads. This is due to the way the routing engine works, as Waze '''will''' route users to drive on these "Non-Drivable" road types.

 +
It is permitted to map Railroads since some users run Waze while on the train and contributing false data to the system. This false data has been known to effect drivers on adjacent roads. Railroads should be level -5 and locked at the highest level of the editor.

Information related to using Waze in the State of Delaware.

This new page is currently undergoing modifications. The information presented should be considered a draft, not yet ready for use. This content is open to changes from anyone during construction. If you would like to make changes or have questions, please post a message in this forum. Please use the talk page for thoughts and ideas on setting up this content.


Cities and Towns

NEEDS UPDATE There are x Cities and Towns in the state. See xxxx for proper naming information.


Major Roads

NEEDS UPDATE See Road names/USA, Road types/USA and xxxx Roads By Type


Landmarks

NEEDS UPDATE Landmarks in xxxx should follow the guidelines from the state of Connecticut until the national standards are complete.


Major Construction Projects

NEEDS UPDATE See the xxxx forum for a list of long term road closures and changes to traffic flow that impact the Waze Map.

Special Roads

Alleys

  • Alleys should always be mapped if they have a name.
  • Alleys should always be mapped if they are the sole access to a home or business.
  • Alleys should always be set to "Private"
  • Alleys are normally mapped if they are acknowledged by the municipality.

If an alley does not meet the above criteria, mapping is optional. Leave the name field blank.

Non-Drivable Roads

Generally, if a path can't be driven on (e.g. Walking Trail, Pedestrian Boardwalk, Stairway, Railroad, Runway/Taxiway) then it not normally mapped. If it is mapped, it should not be connected to any roads. This is due to the way the routing engine works, as Waze will route users to drive on these "Non-Drivable" road types.

It is permitted to map Railroads since some users run Waze while on the train and contributing false data to the system. This false data has been known to effect drivers on adjacent roads. Railroads should be level -5 and locked at the highest level of the editor.

Time Restricted Turns

There is beta testing for setting Time Based Restricted turns in WME. Watch for announcements in the forum on this feature

Speed / Red Light Cameras

Only Red Light Cameras are legal in the State of Delaware. More information can be found on the IIHS website for DE and other states.

Red Light Cameras

There is an ongoing discussion regarding all the red light cameras in DE in the Waze forums. Please post any needed updates/changed to red light cameras there, so local AMs and other editors can make appropriate changes.

  • NOTE: It is important to check the DIRECTIONALITY of ALL red light cameras. In many (most) cases, the red light camera is only monitoring one direction of traffic. An example of intersection where this is the case can be found at US-40 and SR-896.

Other Camera Types

These are cameras or signs that either provide driver feedback or are used for traffic control. These devices CAN NOT issue tickets and should not be mapped.

How to Identify Cameras.

Mapping Resources

Here are some examples of resources that we cannot use because of copyright restrictions. See Using_external_sources for a general discussion of the problem. You can contact the copyright holders, representing no-one but yourself, and asking them to create a copyright/license notice that would allow anyone to freely use the information without attribution. The Waze team is working to come up with an allowed list of online mapping resources.
