Images demonstrated above can not cover all scenarios for mapping maintenance level to Waze road type. These types of roads may undergo variation in quality over seasons additionally depending on the climate (rain/snow). Particularly, some gravel roads may have qualities that are closer to Dirt Road / 4x4 Trail than street. Editors with local experience or potential Street View images may help in this determination.


Driveways / Private Roads

Please follow the following guidelines for Private Driveways. Wiki standard can be found here. Driveways


Mapping rural diveways

  • 50 to 399m (164 to 1309ft): If an address/location cannot be reasonably guided to without a private driveway, as might be the case with the residence being closer to an adjacent street, it can be added.
  • 400m (1312ft) or more: Map it. Do not delete existing driveways already meeting this criterion.

Discussion can be found in the Montana section of the forums.
