You can see your own editing rank from the Waze Map Editor (WME) on the top left of the screen. Your rank appears as a series of cones with a number. In the WME when you select a segment, the properties drawer will show you the name of the editor who created and last modified the segment. The number in parenthesis is the rank system scale.

If your rank is lower than what it should be (based on the criteria below), please contact Support to have the team look into the situation. Currently moving from one rank to the next higher rank is not automatic and needs assistance from Waze support.

Note: Changes have been made to ranks as of July 2014. Some of these changes are still in discussion and may continue to change beyond what is shown below.

Note that this chart is a general world-wide example. Some countries with Self-Management may have different ranking systems. Please check specific countries for variations.

Description Rank in Cones in WME Editable Area Radius Notes
Admin, System, or Basemap import N/A (staff) N/A Includes segments which have not been created or edited by an actual user, but exist from the initial data import (called the basemap) will show this information.
Area Manager N/A N/A Area Managers (AM) can edit anything within their assigned area except objects locked by higher-level editors. Editors of any Rank can be granted AM rights, however in some countries there may be a minimum requirement before Area Managers are approved. Read the Area Manager section in the Wiki first before applying for an AM.
New users 1 1 mile All users start in this group, unless they are a member of one of the other groups listed
Editors with 1K edits or IGN editors 2 2 miles IGN Map editors are an extension of the Waze Geo-Ops (aka the Map Team)
Editors with 25K edits 3 3 miles Editors with 25K edits. Note: Some IGN Map editors may also be rank 3.

Over 500K edits and granted country-wide editing rights 6 Country-wide Once you reach 500K map edits, you can separately request through Support that you be granted country wide editing rights for the server on which you participate. This is not a separate editing rank, but the old rank system used that term to refer to country managers (CM). In some countries with rank self management you will also need approval from the other CMs. In smaller countries with no current CM, you can request CM status at a lower rank and if appropriate you may be granted.
