=== Non-Drivable Roads ===
 
Generally, if a path can't be driven on (e.g. Walking Trail, Pedestrian Boardwalk, Stairway, Railroad, Runway/Taxiway) then it is not 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 passenger Railroads (e.g., Amtrak, Sounder, Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad) because some users run Waze while on the train and contribute 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.

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 "Parking Lot Road"
    • Some alleys mapped be for these guidelines are mapped as "Private Road". It is okay to change these to "Parking Lot Road".
  • 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.

Driveways

See the Driveways article for more details.

  • Driveways are always marked as private road
  • Driveways are mapped if they are 50m (164 feet or about half a football field) or longer Example
  • Driveways are mapped if they are close but not connected to adjacent street Example
  • Driveways are mapped if they are serving two or more addresses Example

Dead End Segments

Dead ends should all have nodes on the dead end side of the segment. It was possible in older versions of WME to add a road with a dead end and no node. If dead end segment does not have a node move it a tiny bit and WME will automatically add a node.

Please note that dead end should not have U-Turn allowed. Please make sure U-Turns on the dead end are Not Allowed.

Forest Service Roads

Forest Service Roads should be built according to Forest Service Roads.

Based on the conditions and climate of Washington, Usually the main FSR is marked Primary Street. (Example: FS-2800) Usually the Spurs of the Main FSR is Street. (Example: FS-2875) Usually the Spurs of the Spurs are Dirt Road / 4x4 Trail (Example: FS-2875050, FS-2875053)

See To Do Washington for Washington FSR mapping updates.
