Introduction: Add example of I-10 & I-17
They are included in this section.
 
== Elevation Editing or "Seagulling" ==
[[File:Seagulling.png|alt=Example of Seagulling Segments|thumb|155x155px]]
Seagulling is the editing practice of changing the elevation of one segment as it crosses immediately over/under another segment. This is not necessary and does not serve any navigation purpose. Elevations are used to delineate the crossing segments so they do not create a routing problem. Instead of cutting a segment into small pieces to accommodate the elevation change, it is better to leave the entire segment at the desired elevation.
 
In Arizona, all primary freeway segments are set to Ground elevation, unless they cross another freeway segment, then one will either be +1 or -1 elevation. An example would be where I-10 crosses I-17.
== State Highway Naming ==
=== Valley Freeway Nicknames ===
Every major In every city gives , transportation landmarks are given nicknames. It can be very confusing to new residents/editors or even senior onseanyone not familiar with the area. This is a list of nicknames for all the valley freeways.
'''Durango Curve'''– The curved section of I-17 near Durango Street is located southwest of downtown Phoenix.
 
The city name field is not to be filled in. Only road segments that pass along the boundary of a city/town will receive a city name and locked to a higher level to prevent tampering. The sole purpose for this practice is to easily identify city boundaries. The city area itself is already identified by Waze. Adding a city name to a road could potentially cause routing issues, especially if one road changes from one city to another.
 
 
== Alternate Names ==
Alternate names are not to be used on any Arizona roadways. They do not show up in on the map and have been known to have adverse routing effects. For other reasons, please see the explanation on City Names.
 
 
==Functional Classification implementation==
{{red|PLEASE REFER TO THIS FORUM TOPIC ON THE MATTER}} [http://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=276&t=85397 Road Types (USA) – comprehensive overhaul of drivable roads]
 
Waze USA has agreed to set a national standard in accordance with the FHWA manual for establishing road classification types in Waze. The following information is in relation to how this is to be understood/applied for the state of Arizona.
===Arizona to Waze Functional Classification conversion===
====ADOT Gis GIS class and color description====
[[File:AZ-GIS-legend.png|left|Gis Legend]]
The Arizona Classification and Color scheme come from the official Arizona D.O.T (ADOT) Functional Classification (FC) map that is published by ADOT. The legend shows what classifications ADOT uses and what color is assigned to each class.
