Walking trails can be mapped as non-routable pedestrian paths. To add, locate ''Pedestrian Path'' under the ''Roads'' drop-down menu. Ensure that when adding, you choose ''Non-Routable Pedestrian Path'' in the left editing pane. Do not connect trails to road segments or . Do not map trails across road segments if unless the trail truly doesn't continue across crosses the road via a pedestrian underpass or overpass and set segment elevation accordingly. (Figure 1 & Figure 2).
Walking trails can be named if an official name exists for the trail. Only add a City if it's within the city limits, much like a road segment. '''Walking trails / Non-routable paths should be locked to 3 once created.'''
=== Speed Limits ===
Please familiarize yourself with the information on the [[Speed limits|Speed Limits Wazeopedia Page]].
 
Turnarounds will follow the same guidance as AGCs for Speed Limit purposes.
 
<br />
==== {{@|Where speed limits change}} ====
Add the construction zone speed limit to the affected segments and place a [CONSTRUCTION] note or Map Comment on the map listing the official speed limit so when construction is complete, an editor can easily reset the speed limit.
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
 
=== True Elevation ===
The South Central Region practices the concept of True Elevation (TE) to better represent segments in relation to surroundings / ground level. In general, most segments should have an elevation of ''Ground'' unless they pass over another segment, waterway, or natural feature. '''Drivable and non-drivable segments are handled the same way with respect to elevation.'''

The South Central Region follows the Waze USA standard for Military Installations. Please see [[Military Bases|Military Bases]] for more information on how to edit these facilities and installations.
=== <br />Place Imports ===
===== Waze3rdParty ====='''For Gas Stations:''' keep existing <em>Waze3rdParty</em> You should [[Places. These <em>Waze3rdParty</em> gas stations have #Merge_places|merge places]] when possible to ensure that any hidden backend data to remotely update gas pricesis not lost. Other <em>Waze3rdParty</em> Places (not gas stations) Below is a list of some of the types of imports you may be removed in favor of a <em>Yext_Import</em> Placecome across.
===== Yext_Import =====This is only a taste of a much larger database. At this time, additional Yext imports are being held until additional WME Place editing tools are released.There is hidden backend data on <em>Yext_Import</em> places that allow for remote updates of operating hours and services. Every effort should be made to preserve this data by keeping the <em>Yext_Import</em> Place. Copy/paste correct data from the existing non'''Waze3rdParty''' -Yext place to replace incorrect data in the new <em>Yext_Import</em> place. Then, delete the old non-Yext place.Gas Station Imports
'''Yext_Import''' <br />
Imported descriptions can be longer than the max character counts, and editors may truncate descriptions to allow for saving other edits. However, there is no initiative to adjust all Yext descriptions.
Only a very small percentage of Yext places have been imported. At this time, additional Yext imports are being held until additional WME Place editing tools are released.'''WazeParking1 & WazeParking 2''' - Parking Lot Imports
===== WazeParking1 & WazeParking 2 =====Duplicates can be removed and favoring the existing parking lot is fine. There is no back-end data that will be lost if the import is not retained. ===== '''Navads_Import =====Duplicates can be removed and favoring the existing place is fine. There is no back-end data that will be lost if the import is not retained.''' <br />

====Rest Areas====
 ====== [[Rest areas]] ====== <br ==== Forest /><br Grove -- River />Stream ====In order to provide a feature-rich UI in the Waze app, adding woodland areas to the map is allowed and encouraged. Small groves of trees or individual trees should not be mapped. Woodland areas should be mapped as close to reality as possible. * Set street and city to "none" unless the forest has a documented address* Leave name blank unless the forest has a documented name  Adding rivers & streams to the map that aren't already included in the water layer (visible in LiveMap) brings additional enhancements to the app-using experience and further helps provide landmarks during navigation.

====Texas====
Although While Texas has allowed red-light cameras in the state allows past, recent legislation has been signed banning them. Some cities have been given special dispensation due to contract expiration dates, but most cities are required to disable and/or remove red -light camerasby September 1, 2019. The following cities are currently known to have contracts that extend past the state mandated date.{| class="wikitable"! City! County! Expected Expiration|-| Amarillo| Potter, some communities Randall| 2022|-| Balcones Heights| Bexar| 2034|-| Humble| Harris| 2024|-| Leon Valley| Bexar| 2038|} Editors are encouraged to investigate whether the cameras in the areas in which they edit are still active. If the cameras are no longer active, they may be deleted from the map. Remember that red-light cameras do not using them[[Map_tiles#Non-trigger_edits|trigger an update]] automatically.
