Editing Resources for the Qatar

  • Qatar/Editing resources - a compilation of suggestions and made into a guide on how we should edit our Waze maps for Qatar. A lot of map issues and update requests are due to incomplete or incorrect information on our map. A lot of these issues could be avoided if we follow the Best map editing practice guide in the wiki. However, some items listed are specifically for the Kataris roads and driving habits.
  • Qatar/Location_List - a tabulation of sectional area of Qatar. This will help editors in locating streets and places the correct address.
