MapRaid will begin on May 24, 2015. The raid will last for roughly 2 weeks.

Welcome to the Ohio Mini-MapRaid


Our primary mission will be to handle the URs, and PURs, followed by Place validation, and general map verification.

Raid Areas

The MapRaid! is being divided up by teams. Mini-MapRaid Overlay

Raid Groups

PUR Areas

Local Hosts


Local Guidance

Functional Classification

  1. Follow ODOT FC map for minimum classification for road
  2. Follow Waze rules for upgrading above ODOT guidelines
    • PS: frontage roads, county roads
    • mH: signed, numbered state routes; BUS/LOOP/SPUR sections of US Highways
    • MH: US Routes, partially-limited-access roads
  3. Local expertise/editor judgement: if you feel that a road/highway is still underclassified after applying the previous rules, please contact a Raid mentor and make a case for further upgrades

Place Editing


Each editor will have a specific area that the Raid organizers will be "grading." This will be used as part of the decision about which participants are selected to participate in the subsequent raids in the series.

The following is a list of improvements that all editors should attempt to make across the entire Raid area, but especially at the "Grading PL."

  1. Make sure all edits are in accordance with current best practices
  2. WME Validator clean through R6
    • Mentors will be available to downlock as needed
    • Remove check for "Exclude non-editable segments"
    • Make sure to fix all issues flagged by the Ohio Localizations plugin as part of this task!
    • Make sure all extraneous junction nodes are removed
    • Unknown direction roads, unconfirmed roads, etc. fixed
  3. User Reports (URs) and Place Update Reports (PURs) either closed or actively being worked
  4. Fix any junctions with unconfirmed turns
  5. Check for any improper turn restrictions0
    • Shift-Z will display all disabled turns visible on screen
  6. Junctions with U-turns enabled
  7. Excessive geometry points removed
    • Can hover and press D or (with Toolbox installed) press 1 to clear all geometry points from a segment
  8. Road segments named properly
  9. Proper elevation settings on segments
  10. Junctions
  11. Divided roads
  12. At-Grade Connectors (AGCs)
    • Make sure they're only used when needed/justified!
    • Proper naming, geometry for turn guidance, etc.
  13. Freeways
    • In Ohio only, freeway segments (and all ramps that connect to freeways) should always be set to "No City" (check with Mentors for explanation)
    • Ramps meet JSG guidance
    • Note that all editors are expected to fix all freeway segments in their area
    • Ramps are named correctly
  14. Place objects set with correct type (area vs point), categories, and addresses (including street/street number!)
  15. House numbers added (within reason, not every single structure needs a house number!)
  16. All segments should be set to their MINIMUM lock level (higher if justified, check with mentors)
    • Street/PLR/private: L1
    • Primary Street (PS): L2
    • Minor Highway (mH): L3
    • Major Highway (MH): L3
    • Freeways: L5
    • Ramps: Highest Connected Segment (HCS)
    • At-Grade Connectors: Highest Connected Segment (HCS)
    • One-way segments: increase lock minimum by one (e.g., one-way PS should be locked to L3)
  17. Functional Classification: make sure all rules from the Functional Classification section have been correctly applied
  18. Rest areas drawn correctly (segment types, place objects, etc.)
  19. Private areas identified, marked with private roads
    • Things to look for: gates, non-standard speed limit signs in Street View
  20. All gas stations identified and mapped correctly -- including street address!
  21. Only those driveways that meet the criteria are mapped
  22. Special care is spent identifying and correctly mapping hospitals/urgent care facilities

Mapping Resources


Reference Links

The Basics

Recommended Tools for MapRaid

  • overlay link
  • Places browser link
  • UR Comments - a tremendous time and labor saving tool with automation and integration with URO+, to help with working URs. Read the documentation.

  • The WME Reference Sheet[PDF] is a printable double-sided tri-fold quick reference guide to some of the common topics used in WME.
  • Validator is a script that validates a map area in Waze Map Editor, highlights issues and generates a very detailed report with wiki references and solutions.

Download links:

* For Chrome browser please download the script at Chrome Web Store
* For Firefox browser please download the script at GreasyFork.org

Note: for Firefox browser you also need Greasemonkey or Tampermonkey installed.

  • WME Chat Addon is a script that improves the WME chat GUI. For a list of all the features check the thread here.
 Tapermonkey/Greasmonkey is required to use this script

Mapraid edit lists

Spreadsheets and forms are being used to streamline management of various group efforts and track important edits. Below you can find links to use these these forms, sheets, and see the lists.


Check back here after the raid is completed to see the results and achievements

MapRaid Promotions

Some editors really let their bright side out, and let their community skills shine. This is even more evident in a concerted group effort with high-density editing like a MapRaid!. Editors of all ranks working closely with each other and the Champs, really lets us everyone get to know each other, and allows certain editors to be recognized for their skills and effort.

When the Champs see someone consistently editing well, interacting well with the community, and knowledgeable of the various details from the Wiki, they can issue promotions. This can be anything from the size of a managed area, to a rank increase, or even a new role.

Watch here for results of promotions during and after the raid.
