How to create a roundabout in Waze

I’m not sure if you know this, but I’m kind of a macher in Waze in Canada.

A more junior editor was having trouble adding a roundabout and asked me to create it so he he could learn how its done. I took that a step farther and made the following videos of me in the Waze Map Editor (WME). And what better place for everyone to watch than a blog?

(If this doesn’t look like your WME, it’s because of the extensions I have running in Chrome. Please try to control your frustration at the excruciating zoom jumps that my Magic Mouse 1 triggers only in WME and nowhere else on my Mac.)

I created the roundabout here with the information I found at Transports Québec, from which I have taken a relevant screenshot of the PDF map.

Here is my work, in two parts.

Hi there

I have some time, so I decided to upgrade my blog from the ten-year-old and obsolete WordPress theme I created to a customized, modern replica. Goodbye, PHP 5!

And since Facebook has blocked automated posting to your own timeline, what’s the point? You can manually copy and paste the URL but not do it automatically. Weird. Doing that, however, includes the post title as the first snippet of text.

Bonus celebrity:

As I was driving on Fleet in Hampstead, I spent some time alongside an Apple Maps car. Look for a red Mazda (yes, still, and I still enjoy the heck out of it) to appear between Harland and Minden when street view in Apple Maps comes to Canada.
