Benelux Announcement:
The information on these pages is adapted to the situation and working of Waze in the countries of the BeNeLux. At the top of the page you can select the language of your choice. Pages that are not updated within the last half year may be out of date. Please do not change anything without consulting the local team. Any questions, remarks or ideas are welcome in this forum.

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 their 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

Everyone is welcome to join our Slack Channel. For a link to receive an invite, please continue on this page.

Waze Map Editor (WME)

Waze uses 3 different servers to host the maps. Israel (IL) & North-Amerika (NA) have their own dedicated servers. The Rest Of World (ROW) is combined on a third 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.

Your Community Career Path

Members of the community all have certain levels in the use of the Waze app, as an editor of the Waze map, and as part of the community. A description of the editor levels is to be found on the page Benelux Community Levels.
