Introducing the Waze World Records




Olympics-fever has swept over Waze HQ! And without a pass to this year's games, we've decided to reveal our very own international mapping medalists.

As briefly mentioned last week, we're going to be releasing the names of our all-star mappers in a series of blog posts that will acquaint you with our top mappers.

These dedicated map-editors hold the records in:

  • Solving system-generated map problems

  • Solving user-reported map problems

  • Adding house numbers

  • Adding roads

Can you guess who will top each category? Are there any other record-breaking categories you'd like to see?

Update: We'll also be revealing the editors that have made the most all-time map edits as well!

  6. How would I add house numbers in Canada? I've never seen the option in the editor...

  7. Not sure this is the right approach. We all know who the top users are and shining more light on them is not going to motivate the 90% of users who have no chance of ever scoring such points.
    I would rather like to see more diverse country stats in the local scoreboards, divide them to show KM/miles driven per week, edits per week, forum posts, URs, reports, etc! See how many hours users have spent driving daily, how many streets they have added/named in the editor! There are lots of stats that are easy to collect for you and could drive the users' competitivness (and in the end the overall Waze experience).
    Revamping the country scoreboards and/or the achievements list is the way to drive the inter-user competition! Some can't compete with the hyper-milers, but could shine in an editors' scoreboard and vice-versa.
