====BC - Best Continuation====
 
:The segment that Waze determines is what drivers would consider the "no turning path" or "going straight" through the intersection. This segment will get a 'continue' instruction, which is ignored by the client app. See [[Best continuation]] for more details.
 
  
===={{anchor|green}}BGS - Big Green Sign====
+
This comprehensive Glossary has been designed to function as a glossary, an index and a cross reference by means of sorting features and a table of context index.<br />
:A large green sign is the US standard road signage for exits and other information.
 
  
====BM - Bookmarklet====
+
It attempts to include all of the many abbreviations, acronyms and terms that we may see in the various Waze communication mediums.<br />
:A Javascript stored as a web browser bookmark. See [[Bookmarklets]]
 
<!-- Added 2014-10-11 -->
 
  
{{anchor|C}}
+
Some existed before Waze, while others were officially coined by Waze. Many evolved naturally within the various Waze communication mediums used by Wazers and staff alike. Regardless of origin, all are important to help understand Waze Speak!<br />
  
====Candies, bonus candies====
+
Please carefully consider your use of the abbreviations and acronyms in your conversations, since
:Small candy shaped icons that appear on the Waze client app. Drive over them to collect the points associated. See [[Your_Rank_and_Points#Road_candies|Road candies]] for more information.
+
they can be unfamiliar when not used in conjunction with other terms or without defining context.<br />
  
====Carpool, carpool lane====
+
Many terms apply globally, however, this glossary is North American English centric.<br />
:A vehicle with 2 or more occupants. Also known as HOV Lanes and Transit Lanes, are lanes restricted for the use of cars carrying a specified number of occupants. See [[Carpool%2C_HOV%2C_Transit_lanes|Carpool lanes]] for more information.
 
  
====CDP - Census Designated Place====
+
The descriptions within this Glossary attempt to merely resolve ambiguity of terms, and reference other Wiki pages, articles, and sections, along with other Waze and external sources. This intentional lack of description content helps avoid duplication of source content, and facilitates future maintenance when source content changes.<br />
:A United States Census Bureau term for a concentration of population that lack a separate municipal government, but otherwise resemble incorporated places. It is sometimes added to a city name with that classification if there are multiple cities in the same state with that name.
 
  
====Central reservation====
 
:Strip of land or barrier separating a dual carriageway. Also known as a median.
 
  
====CM - Country Manager====
+
=====Usage hints=====
:An assigned role to help manage an entire country.
 
:See [[Roles and responsibilities#Country_Manager|Country Manager]]
 
<!-- Added 2014-12-07 -->
 
  
====Cookie munching, cookies====
+
* Sort on the date column to see the latest changes.
:Cookies are the dots on unconfirmed roads (sometimes called pacman roads). Cookie munching (or road munching) is driving over such roads and earns [[Your_Rank_and_Points#How_are_points_calculated.3F|points]]. It also confirms the road is drive-able for the Waze server. See [[FAQ#What_are_those_dots_on_some_of_the_roads.3F|What are those dots...]] for more information.
+
* You can link directly to any item in the glossary table by putting the term name or any of its listed aliases, or abbreviations as a section link.
 +
**For example: you can link to the Wayfinder listing using [[{{FULLPAGENAME}}#WF]] or [[{{FULLPAGENAME}}#Wayfinder]]
 +
** If you link to a term or alias which is listed multiple times in the table, the link will go to the first one listed. To be certain the link goes to the correct entry make sure the term or alias you choose is not duplicated on any other entries. (E.g. a link to [[{{FULLPAGENAME}}#SM]] will go to the Self Management entry and not the State Manager entry)<br />
 +
* When looking at any entry in this Glossary, you will see the main term followed by several other terms showing various relations to this term.
 +
** The second column lists any common aliases or abbreviations, telling that all these terms have the same definition.
 +
** The top of the description column list any other entries which link to this entry as part of their description. These are entries which do no define the current term, rather the current term is used to help define them. These are listed in small text as "Related Entries". Browsing these entries may give you a fuller understanding of the current topic.
 +
** At the bottom of the description there may be links to other entries which help explain the current term. You will also find links to the relevant wiki pages and other sources here. Browsing these links is essential to understanding the current term properly.<br />

====Dogleg====
+
New entries should be placed in alphabetical order sorted by the glossary term using the {{/Glossary item}} template, you can find instructions for use on the template page.
:A dogleg is a shift in a road. Normally, when Road A meets Road B, both segments of Road A are at the same junction. In a dogleg, they don't match up. To cross road B on Road A, you must turn briefly onto Road B and turn back onto Road A short distance later. It is called a dogleg because it has the characteristic shape of a dog's leg.
 
  
:See also micro-dogleg (mDL), a technique with a similar appearance to a dogleg, used for altering the angle Waze sees at a junction, which affects turn instructions.

{{/Glossary_item|term=BBCode|desc=BBCode is a special implementation of HTML to enhance forum posts. In addition to  the standard BBCodes as described in the guide linked below, Waze has added custom BBCodes, including: Table, Hide, and YouTube. The use of the Hide and YouTube codes are obvious when applied from the foum posting toolbar. The Table code however requires additional explanation.
  
====Geometry node====
+
Table code tags:
:[[Image:Segments Nodes Junctions.png|right|110px]][[Image:Segment_geometry_node.png|left|Segment geometry node]][[Image:Landmark_node.png|left|Landmark geometry node]]When editing a segment or Area Place, large white circles appear where the segment changes direction ultimately altering its shape. Click and drag them individually to alter the geometry of the segment or landmark. Press the '''d''' key while the mouse is hovered over them to delete the geometry node. Alternately hold the '''d''' key and then move the mouse over the nodes you want to delete.
+
[table] starts a table with borders
 +
[tr] starts a row
 +
[td] open a cell
 +
[/td] closes a cell
 +
[/tr] closes a row
 +
[/table] closes the table
  
:[[Image:Segment_intergeometry_node.png|left]][[Image:Landmark_intergeometry_node.png|left]]The smaller white circles between the geometry nodes are "inter"-geometry nodes. When you click and drag an inter-geometry node, it becomes a larger geometry node and two more inter-geometry nodes appear halfway between each side again.
+
No other table tags or tag attributes are available. Nested tables are not permitted, and new lines are redered correctly within cells, as all other new lines within the table tags will merely appear above the table.<br><br>See the [http://www.waze.com/forum/faq.php?mode=bbcode Forum BBCode Guide] Waze forum|added=2015-02-25}}

:For example, if the angle at which a local road meets a highway is 20 degrees, Waze will instruct a user turning off the highway to "EXIT RIGHT" (assuming right hand drive countries). If we consider this a turnoff (at grade junction), and not an 'exit,' we will want to force Waze to treat it as a turn. By making a tiny crook (the micro-dogleg) within less than 2.5 meters of the local segment, we can have the final piece of the segment meet the highway at 90 degrees, and cause a turn instruction.

This glossary page concept and format replacement was created by GizmoGuy411 (PM), 2014-10-10T21:19:20 UTC, with over 200 new entries compiled since 2013 added to the original 100 along with a Google Sheet to organize and migrate entries to the Wiki.

Wiki templates, and extensive enhancements to the migration sheet were created by PesachZ (PM), 2015-01-25. PesachZ also provided substantial help with the content organization.

Until finalized, some terms may contain more description content than intended by this project. With the reorganization of the Wiki, new pages may be needed to move some content from the glossary to the Wiki pages.

Please visit the New Glossary concept and format forum post to see the voting results for this dynamic format and to leave comments.

This comprehensive Glossary has been designed to function as a glossary, an index and a cross reference by means of sorting features and a table of context index.

It attempts to include all of the many abbreviations, acronyms and terms that we may see in the various Waze communication mediums.

Some existed before Waze, while others were officially coined by Waze. Many evolved naturally within the various Waze communication mediums used by Wazers and staff alike. Regardless of origin, all are important to help understand Waze Speak!

Please carefully consider your use of the abbreviations and acronyms in your conversations, since they can be unfamiliar when not used in conjunction with other terms or without defining context.

Many terms apply globally, however, this glossary is North American English centric.

The descriptions within this Glossary attempt to merely resolve ambiguity of terms, and reference other Wiki pages, articles, and sections, along with other Waze and external sources. This intentional lack of description content helps avoid duplication of source content, and facilitates future maintenance when source content changes.


Usage hints
  • Sort on the date column to see the latest changes.
  • You can link directly to any item in the glossary table by putting the term name or any of its listed aliases, or abbreviations as a section link.
    • For example: you can link to the Wayfinder listing using Glossary#WF or Glossary#Wayfinder
    • If you link to a term or alias which is listed multiple times in the table, the link will go to the first one listed. To be certain the link goes to the correct entry make sure the term or alias you choose is not duplicated on any other entries. (E.g. a link to Glossary#SM will go to the Self Management entry and not the State Manager entry)
  • When looking at any entry in this Glossary, you will see the main term followed by several other terms showing various relations to this term.
    • The second column lists any common aliases or abbreviations, telling that all these terms have the same definition.
    • The top of the description column list any other entries which link to this entry as part of their description. These are entries which do no define the current term, rather the current term is used to help define them. These are listed in small text as "Related Entries". Browsing these entries may give you a fuller understanding of the current topic.
    • At the bottom of the description there may be links to other entries which help explain the current term. You will also find links to the relevant wiki pages and other sources here. Browsing these links is essential to understanding the current term properly.
