== Welcome to the NJ - Jersey Shore MapRaid! ==
 +
The map raid commenced on 27 May 2015 at 19:00 UTC (3:00 EDT).
  
== Welcome to the Jersey Shore! ==
+
The group will be divided into nine teams, one for each section. Each group will have both local and senior editors, one of which will be the "Group leader" - listed in blue below. Please direct all questions to your group leaders. The raid hosts will be available across all areas for added support.
  
Characterized by its salty air, cool summer breezes, and endless boardwalk amusements for both the young and old, millions of people from throughout the northeastern region of the United States, as well as a good part of Canada, visit the coastal New Jersey region that New Jerseyans, and even many New Yorkers, simply refer to as "The Shore." Let's raid the map this coming winter and spring to help Wazers visiting the shore this summer (and future summers) find their favorite places and find better ways to get to them!

New Jersey has a lot of modern highways built over and/or in conjunction with older local neighborhoods, and many road types were carefully selected to maintain road-type continuity and/or otherwise engineered routes based on how connecting paths between main roads have signage posted.

===Important!===
 +
Please read the entire NJ MapRaid wiki. If you are still uncertain what to do about something you see on the map, please ask your group leader '''Thank You for your help with the map.'''
  
==== Please Do Not Mass-Edit ====
+
===Mapraid UR Rules===
 +
We will follow the [[Update_Requests_in_Waze_Map_Editor#The_resolution_process_.2F_Etiquette|usual US UR etiquette]] with one exception: During the Map raid, the wait time is reduced to 3 days.
  
Do not perform edits that affect large numbers of segments at once. Specifically, avoid the Select Entire Street button completely. Doing so makes it difficult to tell who fixed what parts of the map to solve different URs. While we recognize that sometimes a solution might involve fixing a road name over an entire section of road or dividing/undividing it, for example, we ask that you defer these updates toward the end of the raid. Please consult the local hosts for further information.
+
Do not close URs if the UR contains a tag such as [NOTE], [CLOSURE], or any other [MESSAGE].  
  
==== Level 5,6 Locks ====
+
=== Do Not Mass-Edit ===
  
Level 5 and 6 locks usually indicate that an unorthodox treatment to the map for those segments was necessary. They are also used for Freeway segments that we believe are accurate and up-to-date with the best information available at the current time. Please check with local editors before making any changes to these segments. Consider use WME Color Highlights or WME Toolbox extensions to highlight L5- and L6-locked segments.
+
DO NOT perform edits that affect large numbers of segments at once.  
 
+
We utilize many micro doglegs throughout the state to engineer turn- vs. stay/keep/exit instructions. You need to zoom in very close to see these micro-doglegs.
==== Micro-Doglegs ====
 
 
 
We utilize these extensively throughout the state to engineer turn- vs. stay/keep/exit instructions based on the driving experience approaching many junctions, regardless of the angle any road might depart at. Be sure to zoom in really close at each junction where there might be a question about its geometry or routing to check for a micro-dogleg.
 
 
 
== Local Guidance ==
 
  
 
=== Road Types, Names, and Functional Classification (FC) ===
 
=== Road Types, Names, and Functional Classification (FC) ===
  
In New Jersey, we follow the general USA Road Type rules based on the hybrid rule of FC and Route Type, described in further detail [[Road_types/USA|here]]. FC upgrades have been completed to the best of our knowledge, statewide, and there should not be any need for any kind of mass road type changes.
+
In New Jersey, we follow the general [[Road types#Quick_reference_chart|US standards for road types]] based on the hybrid rule of FC and Route Type.
 
+
We distinguish the 3 different types of routes found in the state as follows:
In New Jersey, all roads with a numbered marker of any type are colloquially referred to as Routes, regardless of whether any particular route has been built into something that resembles a true highway or not. We distinguish the 3 different types of routes found in the state as follows:
 
 
* Federal: '''I-195 E''', '''US-9'''
 
* Federal: '''I-195 E''', '''US-9'''
 
* State: '''SR-35 S''', '''SR-72'''
 
* State: '''SR-35 S''', '''SR-72'''
 
* County: '''CR-537''', '''CR-4'''
 
* County: '''CR-537''', '''CR-4'''
Typically, actual names take precedence over any route-marker-based names in the primary street name field.
+
If a road has more than one name follow the standard for [[Road names#Concurrent_names|Concurrent names on US roads]].
 
 
We observe the following minimum locking table:
 
* {{Freeway}} - '''Level 5'''
 
* Ferry - '''Level 5'''
 
* {{Major Highway}} - '''Level 4'''
 
* {{Minor Highway}} - '''Level 3'''
 
* {{Primary Street}} - '''Level 2'''
 
* Railroad - '''Level 2'''
 
* All types {{Street}} or less - '''Level 1'''
 
* {{Ramp}} - Ramps are typically locked to the highest level road that the contiguous ramp system touches. Most typically, a {{Ramp}} will need to be locked to '''Level 4''' or '''Level 5''', depending on if the main road is a {{Major Highway}} or {{Freeway}}.
 
 
 
As always, before locking a road, be sure it's information is complete and most up to date, including house numbers, if available. If the road is above your editing level, be sure to request an appropriate lock. All roads can be locked to higher levels if need be to protect, say, some obscurity, but these are the minimum levels.
 
 
 
Further information about NJ and USA Road Types ,Naming, and locking can be found [[New_Jersey#Major_roads|here]].
 
 
 
=== Construction ===
 
 
 
There are various road projects constantly going on all over New Jersey. Many long-term projects on bigger roads can be found on the state website [http://511nj.org 511-NJ]. These projects are typically submitted as road closures for their expected duration and marked with the tagged URs from the LiveMap UR Add-on.  
 
  
Other projects involve short term closures on more local roads - in the order of hours or days - and without concrete schedule, so we cannot manage those in WME. For such claims, we simply remind the reporter of the Closure reporting functionality of the Waze app.
+
===Locking Standards===
 +
{{:USA/Northeast/Locking standard}}
  
=== Cities and Towns ===
+
These are the minimum lock level guidelines. Before locking a road, be sure its information is complete and up to date, including house numbers, if available.
  
Many city names on many segments are unfortunately incorrect. New Jersey has a complex hierarchy of "city" naming for each street, where the city name could be different depending on the context of asking. Most common are municipal, postal, and CDP names, and the divergences most often happen in townships. We are working with Waze on a better solution than the one currently available, and as a result, we ask that you do not change any city names during this raid.
+
* Complex places, such as airports, hospitals, police/fire departments, or many urban parks should be locked at '''Level 4'''.  
 
+
* Gas stations should be locked at '''Level 4'''<br />
Of course, if you determine that a city name update is needed to fix a specific UR, please consult a local host first.
+
(but only after at least all the Brand, Name, and Address have been filled in.)
  
 
=== Places ===
 
=== Places ===
 
+
For more information on Places editing in New Jersey, please read [[New_Jersey#Places|New Jersey - Places]].
* Complex, intricate, or otherwise critical Places, such as airports, hospitals, police/fire departments, or many urban parks should be locked at least to Level 4.
 
* Gas stations and other types of places fundamental to the functionality of the Waze app should also be locked at least to Level 4, but only after at least all the Brand, Name, and Address have been filled in. Remember to ask locals for help if needed.
 
* Editors below Level 4 should request a lock when identifying information is completed.
 
 
 
Further information about Places in New Jersey can be found [[New_Jersey#Places|here]].
 
  
 
=== Un-signaled Left Turns ===
 
=== Un-signaled Left Turns ===
 +
Left turns are allowed wherever they are not expressly prohibited (see below). It is OK to turn left over a double-yellow line into a driveway or private road or parking lot. Double-yellow lines are generally interrupted at a public street where a left turn is permitted.
  
In general, un-signaled left turns into public streets are allowed when there is an opening in the double-yellow line in the middle of the road and no posted signage specifically prohibiting that turn. For driveways and other private parking lots, left turns into and out of them are usually allowed regardless of whether there is an opening in the double-yellow line or not, provided none of the following are present:
+
Left turns are prohibited when:
* a posted sign prohibiting the left turn
+
* a posted sign prohibits the left turn
* two double yellow lines (often seen in the form of the "bubble" prior to a dedicated left turn lane)
+
* there are two double yellow lines Sometimes, there is a raised median or diagonal striping between.This is often seen in the form of the "bubble" prior to a dedicated left turn lane,
* a dedicated left turn lane in the main road, not counting a bi-directional "suicide" center turn lane.
+
* there is a dedicated left turn lane in the main road, not counting a bi-directional "suicide" center turn lane.
  
 
=== Jughandles ===
 
=== Jughandles ===
 
+
Be sure to read about [[New_Jersey#Jughandles|New Jersey's unique jughandle system]]. Left turn? Right lane exit. U-turn? Right lane exit. Right lane exit ramp? Fuhggedaboudit! It might be a street, and it might be unlabeled. If you are looking at a divided highway that is not an access controlled freeway, then you need to know about [[New_Jersey#Jughandles|Jughandles]].
On most of New Jersey's major divided roads with at-grade intersections, direct U- and left turns are prohibited. '''PLEASE DO NOT ENABLE THEM!''' Instead, a freeway-interchange-style connector, called a jughandle, is provided along the right side of the road, either before or after the intersection, to facilitate right, left, U-turns, or any combination thereof. Even though they appear as AGCs, they can often be Ramp type to suppress from the map the multitude of names often found on the freeway-exit-style BGS at their approaches. Please do not change their road types without first consulting a local host.
 
 
 
Further information about New Jersey's unique jughandle system can be found [[New_Jersey#Jughandles|here]].
 
 
 
=== Toll Roads ===
 
 
 
On New Jersey's toll roads, only segments where tolls are actually collected should be checked as toll roads. This is especially important on the state's partially-tolled roads, like the Garden State Pkwy or Atlantic City Expy, where it is actually and legitimately possible to travel between certain interchanges in certain directions toll-free.
 
 
 
Roads do not get divided for dedicated electronic (EZ-Pass in New Jersey) toll lanes, unless necessary for some other navigational interest. This is because Waze has no way of telling whether you have an EZ-Pass transponder, and we certainly don't want Waze telling drivers without a transponder to use such toll lanes because traffic is slightly faster there; it is both prohibited and fines can be assessed using automated technology.
 
 
 
High-Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes are not utilized anywhere in New Jersey.
 
  
 
=== Cameras ===
 
=== Cameras ===
 
+
'''Please remove all cameras.''' No mercy.
Speed and dummy cameras are neither allowed nor used anywhere in New Jersey. While there may be mobile units that measure and display your speed and/or whether you are speeding, fines/summonses cannot be issued strictly on those machines' observations.
 
 
 
A pilot program recently ended for red light cameras at select intersections throughout the state, as authorized by the state. Current law requires all red light cameras to be turned off and signage indicating their presence to be removed. However, because of several factors, including the uncertainly of their future, we decided to leave all the RLCs from the now-defunct pilot program in place. '''PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE OR OTHERWISE DISABLE THEM!'''
 
 
 
Further information about cameras in New Jersey can be found [[New_Jersey#Cameras|here]].
 
  
 
=== Alleys ===
 
=== Alleys ===
 +
Info can be found [[New_Jersey#Alleys|here]].
  
In general, alleys are added to the map if they are named or if any Places or House Numbers along an alley are set back far enough from other roads in the area that the alley would be needed for correct navigation into or out of those places. When adding an alley, always use the Parking Lot Road type, and be sure to check and move as necessary all nearby Places and House Numbers so that all are closer to the appropriate road of approach than to any other road, including the new alley.
+
===Rest area===
 +
There are fair number of rest areas in New Jersey. All rest areas should follow the same naming guideline:
 +
Examples:
 +
* Rest Area - I-77 mile 45 Beckley Travel Plaza
 +
* Rest Area (no facilities) - I-75 S mile 15 (Scenic View)
 +
* Rest Area - I-65 S Alabama Welcome Center
  
Further information about alleys can be found [[New_Jersey#Alleys|here]].
+
The rule is:
 +
Rest Area {([vehicle type] only, no facilities)} - [highway] {direction} mile [mile] {Rest Area unique name} {([special type])}

Important!

Please read the entire NJ MapRaid wiki. If you are still uncertain what to do about something you see on the map, please ask your group leader Thank You for your help with the map.

Mapraid UR Rules

We will follow the usual US UR etiquette with one exception: During the Map raid, the wait time is reduced to 3 days.

Do not close URs if the UR contains a tag such as [NOTE], [CLOSURE], or any other [MESSAGE].

Do Not Mass-Edit

DO NOT perform edits that affect large numbers of segments at once. We utilize many micro doglegs throughout the state to engineer turn- vs. stay/keep/exit instructions. You need to zoom in very close to see these micro-doglegs.

Road Types, Names, and Functional Classification (FC)

In New Jersey, we follow the general US standards for road types based on the hybrid rule of FC and Route Type. We distinguish the 3 different types of routes found in the state as follows:

  • Federal: I-195 E, US-9
  • State: SR-35 S, SR-72
  • County: CR-537, CR-4

If a road has more than one name follow the standard for Concurrent names on US roads.

Locking Standards

In New Jersey we have a set minimum standard for locking roads based on segment type. Any road of a certain segment type must be locked at least to the rank (level) in the chart below. Roads may be locked higher for protection and special situations (areas with construction, tricky design, frequent mistakes, imaging inaccuracies, and the like), but should not be locked lower.

A great time to implement these locks is while bringing the road types of an area into compliance with the current US road type standards (FC and highway systems). Lock the roads based on type after they've been set to current US road type standards.

New Jersey Minimum Locking Rank Standard
Segment Type Statewide
 Freeway  5
 Ramp  Highest rank of connected segments
 Major Highway  3
 Minor Highway  3
 Primary Street  1 (Auto)
 Street  1 (Auto)
 Private Road  1 (Auto)
 • • • • Ferry • • • •   5
 |-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-| Railroad |-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|  2

Note: Do Not Mass Edit just to update locks to these standards, these can be adjusted as you find them while editing other aspects of the segments such as FC, speed limits, naming, etc.

Some segments still warrant higher locks and care should be taken when setting segment lock to these standards to look for and protect these special setups with higher locks. Some examples; segments which are part of BDP, U-turn prevention, or using micro-doglegs, or other complex intersection setups.


These are the minimum lock level guidelines. Before locking a road, be sure its information is complete and up to date, including house numbers, if available.

  • Complex places, such as airports, hospitals, police/fire departments, or many urban parks should be locked at Level 4.
  • Gas stations should be locked at Level 4

(but only after at least all the Brand, Name, and Address have been filled in.)

Places

For more information on Places editing in New Jersey, please read New Jersey - Places.

Un-signaled Left Turns

Left turns are allowed wherever they are not expressly prohibited (see below). It is OK to turn left over a double-yellow line into a driveway or private road or parking lot. Double-yellow lines are generally interrupted at a public street where a left turn is permitted.

Left turns are prohibited when:

  • a posted sign prohibits the left turn
  • there are two double yellow lines Sometimes, there is a raised median or diagonal striping between.This is often seen in the form of the "bubble" prior to a dedicated left turn lane,
  • there is a dedicated left turn lane in the main road, not counting a bi-directional "suicide" center turn lane.

Jughandles

Be sure to read about New Jersey's unique jughandle system. Left turn? Right lane exit. U-turn? Right lane exit. Right lane exit ramp? Fuhggedaboudit! It might be a street, and it might be unlabeled. If you are looking at a divided highway that is not an access controlled freeway, then you need to know about Jughandles.

Cameras

Please remove all cameras. No mercy.

Alleys

Info can be found here.

Rest area

There are fair number of rest areas in New Jersey. All rest areas should follow the same naming guideline: Examples:

  • Rest Area - I-77 mile 45 Beckley Travel Plaza
  • Rest Area (no facilities) - I-75 S mile 15 (Scenic View)
  • Rest Area - I-65 S Alabama Welcome Center

The rule is: Rest Area {([vehicle type] only, no facilities)} - [highway] {direction} mile [mile] {Rest Area unique name} {([special type])}

You can read more about this at US Rest area place naming guidelines

MapRaid Promotions

Some editors really let their bright side out, and let their community skills shine. This is even more evident in a concerted group effort with high-density editing like a MapRaid!. Editors of all ranks working closely with each other and the Champs, really lets us everyone get to know each other, and allows certain editors to be recognized for their skills and effort.

When the Champs see someone consistently editing well, interacting well with the community, and knowledgeable of the various details from the Wiki, they can issue promotions. This can be anything from the size of a managed area, to a rank increase, or even a new role.

The following editors did above and beyond during NJ MapRaid. The reward/promotion wasn't only because what they did during the NJ MR but what they did leading up to the NJ MR. Congratulations!
