# 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 [http://www.lto.gov.ph/component/jdownloads/send/9-republic-act/70-republic-act-4136?option=com_jdownloads REPUBLIC ACT No. 4136] Chapter IV Article 1 (Section 35) ''Restriction as to speed''.
# 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)
'''The City field should only contain the CITY or MUNICIPAL Name and NOT the<span style="color:#ff0000;"> AREA</span>''''', '''''<span style="color:#ff0000;">SUBDIVISION</span>, <span style="color:#ff0000;">DISTRICT </span>or <span style="color:#ff0000;">BARANGAY </span>NAME nor should it be combined with the <span style="color:#ff0000;">PROVINCIAL </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 (equivalent to State) activated. For the time being, to address this issue, the 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 '''[https://www.facebook.com/groups/WazePhilippines/doc/494500773906457 repeating city names]''' for a complete listing of all the cities and municipalities within the Philippines.
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
The main differences for these are;
'''DO NOT MAP MILITARY INSTALLATIONS OR BASES'''
