Waze Shares Numbers on 2012 Crowdsourced Mapping Efforts

To celebrate compiling all the numbers from 2012 waze released an infographic. I guess that's now a required communications tool.

Sone numbers:

  • 36 million drivers/users 

  • 90 million user reports 

  • 6 billion miles (9.66 billion kilometres) driven

  • 65,000 map editors 

  • 500 million map edits and updates

  • 110 countries

More interesting, perhaps are the underlying tools waze used to encourage and cajole its users to add more data and offer more edits to its maps:

  • a new map editor
  • meetups
  • tools (and the means to enhance the underlying data) for gas prices and avoiding toll roads
