IGN mistakes

Postby gettingthere » Fri Aug 26, 2011 4:26 am

Sorry, the subject is a bit tasty. I have been cutting the ign editors some slack since they are here to help - or are they?

I thought I saw them all, but a ramp from a major road onto a 'one way' bike path marked as a street? No wonder there is an Update Request - 'turn not allowed'. I'm fixing this now so the permalink will show the after edit. Screen shots of the before.

The edit panel screen snip is of the ramp to the bike path. But I suppose you can guess who also created the bike path as a road... just in case this is a brain teaser - ign_alyona.

And of course these 'ramps' that were added by the ign crew didn't have the turn restrictions set properly and could direct drivers across the median at the termination of the ramps. AND the right turns were not disabled at the intersection that they were bypassing with the ramps.

Ramps, deleted.

Now that I am on a rant, another major intersection - oops, forgot to set the segment prior the left turn onto Pacific Coast Hwy (E Coast Hwy) to allow routing through. RED arrow.

I am fixing this now too.

Hi-lighted segment is the one that matches the edit panel clip.

Maybe this is why the ign editors keep splitting roads everywhere? They can't understand how to junction if a road runs two directions and there is more than one arrow?

OK, I'll email to Alpha.

I would hate to be on Adams Ave here and get routed on yet another bike trail set as a ramp this time instead of a street. Reading the Wiki are thee ign editors?

Not fixing this one yet... ign_kira here.

Wow, this bike trail 'ramp' has really nicely formed, perfect circles junctioned onto Pacific Coast Hwy. Yes, the turns are allowed folks.

I bet I can really avoid some traffic by taking this route :twisted:

oh, so sorry ign_maryna - you really do need to edit that roundabout and give it a city name for it to not be 'red' and show up on the live map and the Waze application.

Waze needs to:

1) Purge inactive AMs from the map; then
2) Set the ign_* crew loose on areas that have no AM, focusing on areas with the highest concentration of URs.

IGN morons

But are the ign editors fixing or causing update requests with these edits? In any case, it certainly doesn't seem like they are closing update requests.

Btw, this area where these examples are from really needs some major editing. (Newport Beach, CA) I am not an AM there. I am just trying to help out a bit I travelled in this area recently and the Waze experience is less than ideal due to so many map issues.

The ign crew is in the right place. In these examples they don't seem to be doing a detailed, correct job.
