View your map editor level

The Waze map stays up to date with the help of our community of map editors. Not a map editor yet? Join the map editing community.

To make sure the map is as accurate as possible, some areas can only be updated by map editors with a certain map editor level. The level you need is set by the local community in each country.

View your map editor level

You can view your current level in the Waze Map Editor.

  1. Log in to the Waze Map Editor
  2. Click, or your photo if you added one to your account, at the top right of the screen

In the menu that opens, you'll see your level number next to your username.

Map editor levels
