Palo Alto Meetup Brings Together New and Experienced Map Editors

MeetUp Pic

Boy, do we love meetups!

Earlier this month, a group of new and veteran map editors convened in Palo Alto to do what they do best — discuss how to create the best and most efficient community mapping initiative possible.

In attendance were special guests from Waze HQ: Co-Founder Ehud Shabtai and Community, Support and Product team members Shirli, Jonathan and Ohad.

The agenda featured wide-ranging talks that were mostly technical in nature. Everything from modifications to gas stations, turn restrictions, intersections, service roads and more map editor features and tweaks were discussed.

Highlights included a talk by CEO Noam Bardin and presentations by top map editors 'skbun,' 'bgodette' and 'AndyPoms.'

Major accomplishments in 2012 were discussed, as well as goals for 2013.

"We still have a lot more to do. It's not going to get boring," Noam said in his talk.


  1. my account has not been updated for 3 days ... you guys are hard to contact... I am losing thousands of points a day just because of your glitch.

  2. For what ever it's worth, should Waze be sold to Facebook, I will immediately cease using Waze. I don't want Facebook to track my travels!
