New Jersey State page redesign

<< plan to remove Notices from page as they are at least 2 years old >>

Introduction

Thank you for your interest in editing the Waze maps for the State of New Jersey. Please note New Jersey State follows the US national guidance with a few exceptions. Be sure to click on and read every link from this page for in-depth tips, guidance and advice.

All editors should have a real username, not a usa_username and are required to have their private messaging turned on.

Refer to the Glossary for common Waze related terms.

Tip: Editors are strongly encouraged to download & install the Waze Validator Plugin. This tool will identify map errors and offers guidance on how to fix them. Use this to identify issues in areas you are working on but make sure not to be distracted by errors that do not pertain to you.

<< todo: update reference from WME Validator to WME Majic >>

Functional Classification

Please review the USA Functional Classification page for details on this topic. In rare cases, a particular road may require a different type than prescribed in the national guidance. Before changing the type of any road past the bounds of the rules, please post the situation to the New Jersey Forum to receive feedback. Dhschneider resources can be found in the following links:

The NJ editing community is currently participating in a Discord pilot. Click here to join for questions, unlock requests, or other discussions with local editors. (The old GHO is in the process of being retired; we strongly encourage you to join our Discord community instead during this time.)


Community Roles

In the Self-managed USA the hierarchy of community roles is as follows:

Global Champ → Local Champ → Regional Coordinator → Expert → Country Manager → State Manager → Area Manager

  • If you are presently one of the above and an editor in this State, please add yourself to the table listed below .
  • If you are an editor looking to become an AM, please add yourself in this table. Keep in mind, the best way to obtain AM status, is by becoming involved in the Waze community.

Mentoring

The greatest resource for editors of any rank is to learn hands on from editors with more experience than themselves. The Mentoring programs are strongly recommended, whether formal or informal.

If you have any questions or difficulties with any aspect of editing, feel free to contact any of Dhschneider's Waze Champs, Country Managers, State Manager(s), or senior editors list in the table below. You can also contact the Regional Coordinator(s) Error in Parameter to RC/Data or RC/Forum (in Parameter to RC/Data or RC/Forum PM)  link=https://www.waze.com/user/editor/Error in Parameter to RC/Data or RC/Forum and Error in Parameter to RC/Data or RC/Forum (in Parameter to RC/Data or RC/Forum PM)  link=https://www.waze.com/user/editor/Error in Parameter to RC/Data or RC/Forum
