Not really. There's no doubt bad gps traces that are attributed to those segments. I've seen a lot of one-way segments with speeds in both directions.

These average times were also visible in the old cartouche editor. If I recall correctly, whenever these data are used to support a theory on why waze is behaving in a certain way, the developer's answer is that the average times we can see are not the data used by waze for routing.

Quick question: I always assumed that Waze stored road speed based on time of day and road speed to go straight or make a turn (based on the navigation routes I would get). However, when I select a segment, it just shows the average speed for that segment. So is this information telling me I was wrong with my assumption?


I think this might be a useful read for you:

http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/How_ ... tes_routes

Meantime...'average' A-B and B-A speeds is an easily pulled data chunk from a segment, so Tim said 'Sure, let's put it in'. Real time data and 'Time of day data' is not, so far as I know.


Yeah... I saw that wiki article, which is where I got my knowledge from. So it seems like I am correct and this data is just a total average.

Something that would be nice, would be for us to be able to select the color of the highlights. i.e. some of the colors that are highlighted I can't see very well due to being color blind to certain colors. I manually hack the code, but I have to do that whenever the script is updated.

I did a little hacking around myself, today...I created a chunk of code which I submitted to Tim - he can decide whether to include it or not. Since we now know that it is completely possible to have segments with multiple cities in them...

The purpose of my code block is to check Alt streets in addition to primary ones, for city names (or lack thereof). It means that if a segment has two or more cities ('No city' also meaning a 'city'), it'll get highlighted for ANY matched, not just the primary.

Have tested (briefly) on both Chrome and Firefox and works as intended as far as I can see :)

However,

Only highlights nodes which makes for having to look vary carefylly to see errors - especially on Major Highways (they are red)
Only works at zoom level 100m/500 ft or closer - meaning there is still quite some scrolling to check the larger roads/routes that typically are quite long. (not sure if possible to make work at zoom levels showing larger areas.

Also,
The Country/Border function shows up on the Danish/German border but not at e.g. the Danish Swedish border separated by a 3 mile sea. Does show up where a road on a bridge connects the countries and the road changes country at one point.

Suggestion:
I would really like it if the segments (not just junction nodes) could light up - but not sure what everyone else would prefer. Of course the segments still light up when you click on a neighbooring segment.
