Welcome on the BeNeLux part of Wazeopedia. In addition to the Global Wazeopedia, you can find here specific information about editing in the BeNeLux. You can also find more information about the Waze BeNeLux Community.


Before you contribute to Waze by making edits in the Waze Map Editor (WME) we would like to introduce you to our community. Each Waze Community is different and has there own rules, guidelines and ways to communicate.


The Waze BeNeLux Community uses various ways to communicate besides the Global Waze channels.

  • (Sub-)forum
  • Slack


The BeNeLux Community has its own dedicated subforum. In the forum, guidelines and problems are stated. If you have questions about specific BeNeLux topics, search this forum first. If you have questions, feel free to post those. If you have questions about the Waze App or the Waze Map Editor, you can search the global forum.


Besides the forum the BeNeLux community uses Slack. In Slack we:

  • Ask questions about all Waze related things
  • Request urgent road closures
  • Request segment unlocks

Waze Map Editor (WME)

Waze uses 3 different servers to host the maps. Israel (IL) & North-Amerika (NA) have their own servers. The Rest Of World (ROW) has its own server. The BeNeLux maps are located on the ROW server, sometimes also called the INTL server. To edit the map in the BeNeLux, go the Waze Map Editor' (WME). But before editing, please read the BeNeLux Guides below.

If you want more information on how or why things are done, please read the following manuals:

Roadtypes & Naming

What roadtype to use in what kind of situation? What segment gets a city- and/or streetname, or not? What is meant with directions and locks? Waze knows several roadtypes which are all used in specific cases. More explanation about those roadtypes can be found here:

Benelux Roads


The Waze Map Editor lets you add points of interest as places. There's a special BeNeLux Places page that explains when and how we do that in the BeNeLux.
