Methinks this belonged in Jolly Editors.

Taking a brief serious moment in this thread...

I suspect the driver was headed to one of the fine eating establishments at the Mansions shopping center. Some of the Google pins are towards the front of the lot, close to Gold Rd, and might have caused Waze to give a stopping point on the public road. Alternatively (and this might be a better match for the response you got), Waze had a shaky GPS or data signal, and gave the turn instruction for Meier too early or misplaced the driver already on Merier and gave a no-name left turn instruction into the PLR. The fact that Waze is showing only a dot of teh driver's actual path might be indicative of a signal issue.

I would just set up a PLR very close to Golf (probably could just move the existing PLR, I don't think that one makes too much sense).

Also, the road is misnamed. It is just Golf Rd. E Golf and W Golf are just cardinals.

then the UR can be marked solved and closed.


Yes, they do, I just wanted to leave that there for a bit. It does give us a chance to look at it and laugh, but I have a practical reason. The Roads there are very round and branch-y, and from experience, roads like that, especially in this area, sometimes have the wrong name assigned altogether. If the reporter engages, I'd like to find out whether Mt Lodge Rd really extends beyond those three segments.

It seems someone once upon a time had a map or list of of streets that included "Mt Lodge Road" or "Mtn Lodge Rd" or similar.

Someone scanned it in, and used OCR to get an electronic list (text). The Mt/Mtn turned into Mff, and the Rd/Road turned into Rrd.

I suppose it could be a manual input error, and not an OCR error. But I was very involved in CR at one point, and this absolutely consistent with typical OCR errors.

Remember, mapping has been around for thousands of years. Modern mapping and transportation network record keeping in the US has been around for about 150 years. Electronic storage of that data only starts 50-60 years ago, and only . A lot of catch-up involved transferring data from state resources, the US Geological Survey, and historic Census Bureau data into the original TIGER system in the 1980s. That was not long after OCR began coming of age. I haven't seen anything specific about this, but I would bet they at least experimented with OCR in the data gathering process.

This one is stale, but still an awesome example of the transformation from paper to digital. Really funny OCR. https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lo ... st=3546103

OCR, or is is it so cold that you're wearing a scarf?
