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 contents.

It attempts to include all of the abbreviations, acronyms and terms that are seen in the various Waze communication mediums.

Some terms 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 US 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.

The Table

  • Column A
    • The term being defined. It may be a fully spelled out term, an alias or an acronym.
  • Column B
    • Fully spelled out terms will list the typical alias or acronym.
    • If the term is an alias or acronym, it will state as much.
    • When more than one term is represented by the same alias or acronym, the alias or acronym in this column will appear as a hyperlink, returning to the alias or acronym entry showing all the associated terms.
  • Column C
    • The description column may include a definition, or it may link to another source with a deeper explanation of the term.
    • Each entry may include one or more of the following:
      • "See the XXXXX XXXXX" entries link to a full definition of the term. Some terms may have multiple meanings and therefore multiple "See the XXXXX XXXXX" entries.
      • "Also see XXXXX XXXXX" entries link to terms or pages that have an association to the current term (usually in a subordinate way).
      • "Related entries" link to any other terms in the glossary which have a link to this term.
  • Column D
    • Click on the little up/down arrow UpDownSort.png in the column heading to sort the latest glossary changes to the top.
    • The date entry will include the first added (A) date and may also show the last update (U).


Searching

  • Use the table of contents to move to the top of the terms starting with a specific letter.
    • You must have column A sorted with the little up/down arrow UpDownSort.png on the right of the text in the heading in order to properly use the table of contents.
  • Use the web browser feature for searching the page (typically CTRL+F).


Linking

  • 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 desired 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)
    • In cases with multiple alias entries, just use the full descriptive term.
    • Links to this glossary which only go to the top of the page are using an anchor link that is not present on the page. Check the spelling of the anchor link.


Other Tools

  • There is a Bookmarklet (BM) available which will take you directly to the Glossary Entry for a term from anywhere on the web. Just highlight the term and then click the BM, or enter the term after clicking on the BM. It will open the Glossary, and jump to that term if it exists as a listed term or alias / abbr. (This is case sensitive).

Split Split road Split has been used to refer to several very different things, and this has been a source of confusion in the Waze editing community. Its use has therefore been deprecated, and more descriptive terms have been chosen.

In order to avoid confusion, please use these terms when discussing these topics.

  • Fork: A fork in the road; a point where a single road diverges into two directions (previously referred to as a split in the road, or the road splits. This is the MUTCD definition of "split".)
  • Divided: A divided roadway or dual carriageway; a road comprised of two separate one-way roads with a dividing barrier, median or central reservation (previously referred to as split road)
  • Divide, Dividing, Un-Dividing
    • Divide: To convert a two-way road into a divided roadway or dual carriageway on the waze map, by dividing a single two-way road into two adjacent one-way roads (previously referred to as splitting a road or to split a road)
    • Un-Divide: To convert a divided roadway into a single two way road.(previously referred to as un-splitting)
  • Cutting one segment into two shorter segments (previously referred to as splitting)
