Revision as of 00:36, 16 September 2014

A new program is being tested that links volunteer pilots with Waze volunteer map editors. The pilots submit aerial photographs of new and changing roads so that Waze users can have the most accurate and up-to-date navigation available.

Information for Requesters

In addition to the Munching system for confirming new roads and GPS points in the Waze Map Editor, map editors can request aerial photographs of places that are confusing or represent changes since the last satellite images were taken. By having a recent photograph, map editors can ensure the road topology is correct, account for on/off ramps, etc.

=== Format for Requests

During the trial phase of Aerial Photograph Requests, map editors should submit requests to the Waze Forum (HERE-TBD). The format of a request should include in the subject line A)geographic part of a state and B) nearest major city (avoid township names). Example: "Central PA, Harrisburg area"

The content of the forum request should include:

  • link to Permalink to the area of interest that has the roads of interest highlighted.
  • a description of what the picture should convey

The description should highlight of the editor is needs a broad picture of an area, or focus on just one particular intersection.

Information for Pilots

Since Waze uses a "crowd sourced" map using content from volunteer editors, pilots can help the process by providing aerial photographs of new and changing roads. When pilots are practicing and looking for a good excuse to go fly, snapping pictures along the route can help the volunteer editors and ultimately the driving community.

Getting Started

A list of participating pilot volunteers is (HERE at bottom of page). Sign up or contact wazeflyer at gmail dott com for assistance. Showing your availability will help Waze map editors know that there is a pilot in their area and encourage filing requests. In addition browse the request area (HERE TBD) to see if any there are any requests in your area already.
