The Waze servers are constantly analyzing driver's GPS tracks to determine when there might be a problem with the map and uses the Problems layer to alert the editors. Some types of problems tracked are missing roads, incorrect turns allowed at intersection, wrong direction of road, missing parking lot places, and reports from Waze reporting partners.
You can toggle visibility of closed Map Problems by using the "Show/Hide closed" link next to the Map Problems text.

These are user-submitted map issues while on the road or from LiveMap. This marker shows the location the user reported the issue from. The user's driven route for a distance before and after the reported location will be shown in bright green. If Waze was in navigation mode at the time of the report, then the requested route for a distance before and after the reported location will be shown in purple, with markers along the route with the turn direction given to the user.
You can toggle visibility of closed Update Requests by using the "Show/Hide closed" link next to the Update Requests textwhen the "More Detail" expanded layer view is shown.
See [[Update Requests in Waze Map Editor|Update requests]] for more information.
The Place Updates layer shows Place Update Requests (PURs) submitted by drivers and beginning editors. When an untrusted driver or editor creates a new place or makes changes to an existing place, a Place Update Request is created. Editors of rank {{rank|placeautotrust}} or higher decide whether to accept each request. The most recent requests are a pale pink. Older requests are darker. Accepted but not-yet-saved requests are green.
If an editor is modifying a place that is above his/her editing level, then it will generate the PUR for a higher level editor to review before the changes go to the map.
See [[Places#Place Updates (Moderation)|Place Updates (Moderation)]] for more detail.

[[Places]] are also known as POIs (Points of Interest). These can really be just about anything, but tend to be things like businesses, parks, gas stations, cemeteries, transit stations, etc. There are two types of Places: Area and Point. Point Places are for most small businessbusinesses, shops, etc. Area Places are for large stores, malls, parks, etc.
See [[Places]] for more information on this topic.
=====Road closures=====
<div style="float:left; margin-right: 1ex; margin-bottom: 1ex;">[[File:Wme-closure-2018.PNG]] [[File:Wme-closure-2way-2018.PNG ]][[File:Closure_Gray_TwoWay.png ]]</div>The Road Closures layer displays a closure symbol and direction when a closure has been placed, using either a WME Closure or the client's Report > Closure feature. A red circle indicates a currently active closure. A gray circle indicates either a scheduled, but not currently active, WME closure or an app-submitted closure. Black arrows show the closure direction(s).
App submitted closures from editors rank of R5+ go live to the map right away.
===== (Speed) Enforcement Cameras =====
[[File:camera2false.png]] [[File:camera2true.png]] [[File:camera4false.png]] [[File:camera4true.png]] Shortcut key: {{key press|Shift|S}}
Speed Enforcement cameras, red-light cameras , and dummy cameras are shown on this layer. Drivers can report camera location and type, and a map editor is required to confirm the existence of the camera, . The precise location and direction that the camera is point pointing is required before it will appear on in the clientapp. Confirmed cameras will pop up a visual and audible alert in the Waze app when approaching a speed or red light camera.
See [[Cameras]] for more information.

Where you can edit is determined primarily by where you have driven. [[Editing rank|Edit rights]] are initially granted within a [[Editing_rank#Rank_comparisons|one-mile radius]] of where you have driven with the Waze app running. Your editable area is shown in lighter-colored areas surrounded by a black border. Users who are Area Managers will also see their managed areas in a colored highlighted area. The editable areas based on drives are usually only available for roughly 90 days of time. These areas / drives sometimes will take a few days to show up rather than being instantaneously updated as soon as you drive in an area. 
See [[Waze Map Editor#Editable Area|Editable area]] for more information.
Changing the name of the city for a road is done through the WME interface documented in [[Map Editor Interface and Controls#Segment Edit Detail|segment edit detail]]. If after fixing the city names you still have incorrect city boundaries, review the article on [[Smudged city#Updating the city layer|Updating the city layer]].
When deciding a specific city name for a segment, one should consult [[Road names/City names#Identifying_the_correct_postal_city|City naming]].

=====Drives tab=====
<!-- Copied from FAQ; consider creating a transcludable subpage for both locations -->Drives are journeys or routes that you have driven with the Waze client running. While you drive, Waze monitors your journey (recording details like location, time, speed) and transfers this information to the [[Servers]]. This data is used to validate the existing map (roads, turns, directions) and to learn average journey times. Other Waze users and [[Area Manager]]s can also view the anonymous GPS tracks of many users when editing the map in the [[Waze Map Editor]]. This helps with map accuracy.
Clicking on one of the five visible entries will center the map along that route and will zoom out to try and fit your entire route on the screen. Routes over about 20 miles / 30 kilometers will usually not fit on the map display all at once due to scale limitations. Use the mouse or arrow keys to pan around on the map. Parts of the route that display in red are not currently paved roads. Consider [[Map_Editor_Interface_and_Controls#Zoom_Control|zooming]] into that area to determine if a road should be added.
Select the highlighted numbers at the bottom of the tab window to select older routes in date order.
