Map Editing Guide for the Philippines
# Set the elevation level (Ground, Tunnel = '''-1''', Flyover = '''1''', '''2''', '''3''', etc.). Only tunnels or underground roads are to be set to -1. If one road passes over another, the bottom road is Ground and the one that passes over is 1. Tunnels should at least be 100m in length, otherwise leave them as ground level unless they pass under a segment already on ground level.
# Set the speed limits in accordance with [ REPUBLIC ACT No. 4136] Chapter IV Article 1 (Section 35) ''Restriction as to speed''.
{| class="wikitable sortable"
! Maximum allowed speed in KPH !! Cars and Motorcycles !! Trucks and Buses
| Expressways || 100 || 80
| Major Highways || 80 || 60
| Minor Highways || 60 || 60
| Primary Roads || 40 || 40
| Streets, except those with speedbumps (humps) || 30 || 30
| Private & Parking Lot roads, Streets with speedbumps (humps) || 20 / Depends on traffic regulations of the area || 20 / Depends on traffic regulations of the area
# Connect or create junctions (attach to existing roads) except if these are non-routable road types like '''Walking Trails''', '''Pedestrian Boardwalk''', '''Stairway''', '''Railroad''', and '''Runway/Taxiway'''
# Set turn restrictions and if u-turns are allowed on junctions, the easiest and fastest way to do this is to click on the junction node and hit 'w' on your keyboard. This will set all turns to enabled or green. Leaving a turn restriction disabled does not mean that Waze will not route to it, Waze can still route a turn to it since it is connected. To prevent routing, a segment needs to be totally disconnected from a junction and placed 5m apart.
# Name the road, if you don't know the street name add the city name and mark the street name as 'None'. Somebody else could edit it. '''Do not''' leave segments in red (unnamed). '''Do not''' name roundabouts, the road name will not wrap around the roundabout segments and will not look right on the map. It will also break the routing instructions for the roundabout.
Follow the PH Road Naming convention when adding road names -
:1. Always use the official name as the street name (DPWH Name)
9. # When naming streets, omit "City" and "Street". e.g. "Pasig City" to "Pasig" only and "Dela Rosa Street" to "Dela Rosa" only. Except when they are not "Streets" like "Kamias Road", "Aurora Boulevard", "Ayala Avenue", etc. If you are going to abbreviate, make sure you follow [ Waze Abbreviations and TTS] standards so that our street names are ready for TTS (Text To Speech).
'''The City field should only contain the CITY or MUNICIPAL Name and NOT the<span style="color:#ff0000;">&nbsp;AREA</span>''''',&nbsp;'''''<span style="color:#ff0000;">SUBDIVISION</span>, <span style="color:#ff0000;">DISTRICT&nbsp;</span>or <span style="color:#ff0000;">BARANGAY </span>NAME nor should it be combined with the <span style="color:#ff0000;">PROVINCIAL&nbsp;</span>Name.'''
Currently waze has a global issue with cities having duplicate names (with the exception of North America). We are hoping to resolve this in the future by having the Province label&nbsp;(equivalent to State) activated. For the time being, to address this issue, the &nbsp;province's initial, to which the city or municipality belongs to, is added (suffixed) to the name. e.g. Alaminos (L) for ''Laguna'', Alaminos (P) for ''Pangasinan''. Kindly refer to this link of '''[ repeating city names]''' for a complete listing of all the cities and municipalities within the Philippines.
10. # '''Do not split roads unless''' they are Expressways, Major, and Minor Highways. Even if they are Major or Minor highways, do not split them if they do not have wide median barriers. Split roads complicate routes and are harder to maintain.
Some formal guidelines for splitting roads in the Philippines - A road ''should''' be split if:
*When in doubt, leave it out. Each connector complicates the map and adds to your workload when the time comes to check connectivity, direction, name, etc
11. # When you are confident on an area you have mapped,'''lock the roads''' to prevent any changes or edits on the roads. While we appreciate the help of newbie waze editors in editing our maps, they are prone to creating errors if not informed and educated properly on our map editing guidelines. It would be great if we can direct them to read this guide first before they start doing any edits. Read the [ Phillipine Locking Policy] for more details.
12.# '''Adding Area Places, Point Places, and Gas Stations'''; When adding Places, make sure their location is properly identified through the add Area Places draw function and add the address in the details as well. If an Area Place will cover beyond a city's/minicipality's boundary or will cover more than one city/municipality, mark the city address as none. For bodies of water like creeks, rivers, lakes, sea, etc. mark the city address as none, this is so that their area will not be added to the city tile.
The main differences for these are;
13. # '''KISS! - Keep It Simple, Stupid'''! Our maps should work best if they are kept simple rather than complex, therefore simplicity should be the main objective in our maps and unnecessary complexity should be avoided.
