So real name and Alt name are exactly the same (Except maybe the state field). Seems like a waste of database entries.

Kinda wish there was a script that automatically deleted alt names if the the street and city match the regular name.


Bet someone changed the road name on WME before they gave us the ability to edit the Alt names. They didn't feel like or want to go into Cartoche to do it.

I disagree. I hope that City feature is never used as the sole criteria for address resolution or if it is that the search algorithms are as robust as the current address search that will find the destination regardless of whether you use the actual community name or the name associated with the ZIP code. Unless we have word from waze that they are going to need the zip code boundaries entered to resolve address searches, I don't think we should default to zip code boundaries.

As for state and country, in Erie, PA I've noticed new segments randomly defaulting to things near the border (New York, Ohio, and occasionally the country goes to Canada) but never something completely in a different area.


There are border issues in some spots where WME doesn't seem to know what state you're in. The Louisiana border extends east into MIssissippi almost 50 miles at a couple of points. I was drawing in a new subdivision in Gulfport, MS the other day and about half of the segments defaulted to Louisiana and half defaulted to MIssissippi, so I guess I was right on the line. They all would've allowed me to select either state, but if I tried to save with Louisiana on there, it gave an error that I was too far from the state. :?:


They must really hate Mississippi, then, because I had the same thing happen when I was doing some editing in the Grenada area. Most roads there were saved or defaulted to Arkansas. That's ~70 miles from the state line.

I'm actually having a hard time finding more of these. Has there been a big cleanup done?

If the answer is no, if you can point me to areas where the smudge still exists, I can try a JS fix I've had in the works to fix these segments quickly. (Also, it may work for other no-city basemap state smudges as well. Toss one or two at me.)

Other Smudges are the Idaho/wyoming state smudge (areas of Wyoming where unnamed roads are set to Idaho. And the Montanna/Idaho Smudge where a large portion of western Montana is marked with Idaho.

As to Portola, I've cleaned up a few tonight, If I see any more I'll link em rather than clear them. It looks like the automated process cleared out all the remote ones except for a few very widely scattered ramp segments, and segments within towns, those are the ones that generate the UR's Alan mentioned.

As far as the 303 highway.... argh! Not sure what to do here. It's a wreck and not sure what's going on over there.. I got access to it today but damn I haven't driven it in awhile and dont know what it's current state is.

Want help with it. It looks like what you've mapped in but not named is matching the GPS tracks.

While normally I agree with the GPS tracks being suspect, in this case they clearly show the newer two lane highway with controlled interchanges as compared to the single lane hwy the aerials currently show. And if nothing else they provide a very solid indicator of where the road lanes and ramps should be placed (which it looks like so far you have correct.) GPS tracks can be dated but if there is question about placement of roads they should be a primary tool as the aerials occasionally get shifted.

That reminds me of a time a number of years ago, when I worked in a retail store in a fairly large outdoor mall (it took up most of a rather large block - https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=4&lat ... 7,70693355.)

The Mall Mgmt. wanted to tear down our building, so they had us move to another building. The original store was closer to Showers Dr (about the middle of the block), but faced San Antonio Rd. The new store was slightly closer to El Camino, but quite a bit closer to San Antonio Rd, and faced El Camino.

All my Vendor Reps asked, "So what's your new address going to be?" The answer: Exactly the same. We're just physically moving with no change in address.

Then, about a year after the move, I had to notify all my Vendors that we were getting a new address. So, the natural question was, "So where are you moving NOW?" The answer: We're not physically moving, just getting a new address.

And the funny thing about the address shift was: originally the store (although closer to Showers Drive and facing San Antonio) had an El Camino Address, but after the move and subsequent address change, the store (even though it now faced El Camino and was further from Showers Dr.) had a Showers Drive address!

The freeway movement is marked CONST ZN. Is it possibly legit? Or just a bad way of handling a detour?

The labeling of every single dirt road in the fields is... :shock:

I can't find a way to report the abuse by the user MagicLT, who is splitting all the roads into two oneway streets. I can't send a message from the forum, because he probably has no account here (by sending the site says that user does not exist). In support section I find no way to send a report as well, because when I describe the problem in quick help window "nanorep" says that my question is incoprehensible :evil: :evil: :evil:
