View your map edits

You get map edits for activities in the Waze Map Editor and the Waze forum. Once you complete a certain number of edits, you may be able to move to a new Map Editor Level.

You can view your total number of map edits 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
  3. In the menu that opens, next to your username, click level. A new window opens.

You'll see your map edits total under "Edits".

Check out the local community's Wazeopedia for a complete list of map edits per activity.

Got questions?

Why did I get less map edits than I should have?

There are a few reasons why this might have happened:

  • A large number of updates were made before you clicked Save. You can only earn a maximum of 150 map edits per Save
  • You updated multiple properties in a single segment before you clicked Save. Map edits are granted per updated segment, node, or object, regardless of how many properties within the segment you updated.
  • You updated the same segment multiple times within 24 hours. In this case, you’ll only receive map edits for updating one segment.

Why don't I see my edits on the map right away?

Updates to the map are published about once a day. After you’ve saved your Map edits, they won’t appear live in the Waze app or the Live Map until the next Map Build Process.

It's also possible that because of your map editor level, you weren't able edit the map, and instead you suggested an edit . When you suggest an edit, an experienced editor has to review and approve your suggestion before it's added to the map.
