Comenzando con la edición de mapas

Guía específica de edición de país y lenguaje

Las instrucciones específicas de tu país y lenguaje pueden ser encontradas en la web de tu país: Template:Países

Edición manual

Edición básica de mapas (Needs updating)

Los mapas base de Waze provienen del "U.S. Census Bureau's Tiger Data" [1]. Tiger Data provee de algunos nombres y localizaciones precisos de vías y carreteras, pero no incluye el sentido de las vías, distinciones entre vías férreas, calles peatonales, canales, y calles, o cualquier dato de navegación.

Mientras que circular por las propias vías nos permite editarlas, necesitamos un editor que nos brinde la posibilidad de definir datas y características más detallados. Este editor es Cartouche. Cartouche es un editor de mapas utilizado por el usuario final para adinar el mapa base. Conteniendo cuatro paneles principales para la ayuda del usuario: Capas, Control de mapa, Vistas, y Edición.

Accessing Cartouche

  • Log in to your account.
  • Select "Live Map" in the main navigation header.
  • Select "Update Map" located just above the map viewer.
Error creating thumbnail: File missing

Your screen should look something like this. Each panel can be moved around by clicking and dragging on an empty part of the panel.

Navigating the map

  • Move around the map by clicking and dragging on an empty space in the viewer.
  • There are four ways to zoom in cartouche:
    • The buttons on the zoom controller in the upper-left corner of the map viewer will zoom in and out, and the vertical bar allows for immediate zooming to a specific level.
    • Double-clicking any point on the map will zoom in and center the map on that point.
    • Scrolling up with your mouse wheel will zoom in on a certain point, and scrolling down will zoom out, keeping the mouse pointer's location in the same location."
    • Holding the Shift key will allow you to click and drag a box; the map will then zoom in onto the selected area.

Permalink

A permalink allows you to send url or a link to the exact view of the map you currently are viewing. This is a great way to show others a specific area of a map. For example when editing roads and need assistance on the forums you can share a permalink to that region.

On Waze, the permalink is called "SuperPermalink".

To get the SuperPermalink:

  • In the bottom right of map viewer press the button "SuperPermalink"
  • The page will refresh
  • The permalink can be copied out of the address/url bar at the top of your browser.
  • Share the URL! Done.

Selecting Multiple Roads

Some edits require that you select two segments of road.

  • Mac: Command + Click
  • Windows: Ctrl + Click

Keyboard Shortcuts

  • g - Edit the selected road/node/landmark geometry
  • e - Edit the selected road/node/landmark details
  • c - Connect the two selected roads
  • s - Select 9 closest segments which belong to the same street
  • d - Delete selected node from road geometry (only while editing road geometry)
  • Delete - Delete the selected feature(s)
  • Insert - Create a new road
  • Esc - Deselect all features.
  • y for Yes / n for No hot keys in confirmation window

Google aerial images cannot be used

Google's terms of use means that Waze cannot use their aerial images.

Those terms of use also apply to you. You cannot use Google's aerial images to edit Waze's maps. In some jurisdictions you may be able to use them as a reference (like looking at a map in a mapbook), but not as an overlay as with the Greasemonkey script Googze.

If you were to do such a thing, it would taint all the work you did and Waze would need to reverse out all your edits. There could be other adverse effects. Waze has already had to remove all the maps for Chile, and other South American countries because the source of the map data was not properly licensed (not Waze's fault).

So do not use Googze as a way of applying Google's aerial images as a replacement for Waze's licensed images when doing map editing.

You may negotiate with officials in your country for access to aerial images that Waze can use. Just be careful not to give the impression taht you are acting on behalf of Waze. But as an interested citizen you can speak with local authority, in a local language, to explain the benefits to your country in making aerial images freely available as a public good.
