How to use the Russian Road Data Sheet
2
3
Most long-distance highway route numbers will be alt names. Adding these alt names makes for better Waze routing by creating name continuity and road type continuity. These long-distance routes may pass through many different provinces. For each route, you may look for the cities which are within your MapRaid area and work toward the boundaries of the area. If you have trouble searching for any city names, or if the city does not yet exist on the Waze map, please check with Russian speakers and follow instructions in the wiki to request a new city to be created.

How do I do this?
36
1Go to your MapRaid Group Area using the links in the MapRaid Wiki (this will help narrow down the search results)
37
2Go to your group’s Road Data spreadsheet
38
3Choose a road to work on.
39
4Put your Waze username in “Editor name” column
40
5Set the Status to “In Progress”
41
6Look at “Description (Russian)” column to find where the road starts and ends
42
7Reading in the “Description (Russian)” column, copy and paste the first city name into the search bar in Waze Map Editor. If you have unexpected search results or none, add the region name to the search bar.
43
a.The search results list will typically have the format: Town/City name, District/Province, Region
44
b.Choose the search result that is in the correct city and the correct region.
45
c.Click on this icon: , it will take you to the Waze livemap <www.waze.com/livemap>
46
d.Click on the Pin and click the button “Set as Origin”
47
e.Verify that the search result is in the correct city and the correct region
48
8Back to Waze map editor; search the next city, this will be the destination.
49
a.Hover over the coordinates and copy them
50
9Go to Waze Livemap, paste the coordinates in the second textbox (where the flag and faded “To” is)
51
10We have an approximate route. Determine the most logical route based on what is already mapped in Waze Map Editor and the routing given in the livemap.
52
11In Waze Map Editor, look for the most logical starting place of the road, Some roads number names were already mapped, usually as an alternate name and you will not have to determine the most logical route. You will just need to verify that there is no break in road type continuity and name continuity.
53
a.Put the permalink on the Permalink - Start column.
54
12
Once you decide the logical route for the road, in Waze livemap, search for the last city listed in the “Description (Russian)” column and decide the most logical ending place of the road.
55
a.Put the permalink on the Permalink - End column.
56
13Set or Verify the Road Name for the entire route. You can do this in parts or in one seating.
57
a.Be sure that the route has the same road type and segment name.
58
14When you complete the route, change the status to “Done”
59
15Optional: If the length of the route is not given, make a route at waze.com/livemap and put the distance into the third column (“in Km”).
60
61
Rinse and Repeat on other roads! Ask your group leader or co-leader if you are not sure where to put the names on the map.

Example: The Road has been previously mapped
65
1I want to work on “18P-1”.
66
2Write username “GeekDriverPeaceful” on “Editor name” Column and set Status to “In Progress”
67
3Look at the “Description (Russian)” text: “автомобильная дорога "Волгоград (от г. Волжский) - Астрахань" (в границах территории Волгоградской области)”
68
a.автомобильная дорога = highway
69
b.в границах территории Волгоградской области = within Volgograd Region
70
c.What is important is the text between the quotes “"Волгоград (от г. Волжский) - Астрахань” = "Volgograd (from the city of Volzhsky) - Astrakhan"
71
i.This means that the road goes from the city of Volzhsky to Astrakhan.
72
4In Waze map editor, search “Волжский”, this will be the origin. If I had strange search results or none, I would add the region name:
“Волгоградская область” ***Searching in English will not work. Search in Russian/Cyrillic.***
73
a.The search results list will typically have the format: Town/City name, District/Province, Region
74
b.In this case it is: Волжский, округ Волжский, Волгоградская область.
75
i.Волжский is the town/city
76
ii.округ Волжский is the district
77
iii.Волгоградская область is the region
78
c.Click on this icon: , it will take you to the Waze livemap <www.waze.com/livemap>
79
d.Click on the Pin and click the button “Set as Origin”
80
5Back to Waze map editor; search “Астрахань”, this will be the destination.
81
a.Hover over the coordinates and copy them
82
6Go to Waze Livemap, paste the coordinates in the second textbox (where the flag and faded “To” is)
83
7We have an approximate route. Determine the most logical route based on what is already mapped in Waze Map Editor and the routing given in the livemap.
84
a.Looking around in Waze Map Editor, it appears that the road has already been mapped but not completely.
https://www.waze.com/en-US/editor?env=row&lon=44.72565&lat=48.81581&zoom=5&segments=328754990.
85
i.Put the permalink on the Permalink - Start column.
86
b.Looking to the east, there is a road named “Волгоград - Астрахань,” this is the most logical road for “18P-1”, so we will follow and add the Road Name to the alternate name all the way to “Астрахань” In fact this matches the names given in the spreadsheet! This is not always the case, but many rural roads have “City-City” in their primary names since local Russian people call the roads that way even though the name is not official. You can also use StreetView to find signs with city names.
87
c.I continue to follow the route until it reaches the boundary of the Volgograd Region since the “Волгоград - Астрахань” route goes through multiple regions. So in this case, it does not end at Астрахань. We continue until we see the border (pink lines) from the MapRaid Script. This is because the description says “within Volgograd Region”
88
d.https://www.waze.com/en-US/editor?env=row&lon=45.60796&lat=48.60221&zoom=2&segments=293820211,271406712 is the end point of “18P-1.”
89
i.Put this PL in the Road Sheet on the Permalink - End column.
90
8Use WME Magic script to see the alternate names, so that we can see our Road Number (18P-1).
91
a.I followed the already mapped 18P-1 until here:
https://www.waze.com/en-US/editor?env=row&lon=44.87763&lat=48.71491&zoom=3&segments=264446417.
There is no name after here, so select the appropriate segments following the route, type “18P-1” using Cyrillic Characters, and choose from the dropdown list. Press apply and save.
92
93
Definitions
94
-Name Continuity: all segments from Point A to Point B have the same name in either primary or alternate field in WME
95
-Road Type Continuity: all segments from Point A to Point B have the same road type (Freeway, Major Highway, etc), if one segment has a different road type then the road type continuity is broken.
96
-область: region / province
97
-Район: district
98
-городской округ OR округ: district in urban areas
