At a normal 4-way roundabout, it'll say "at the roundabout take the 1st exit" for a right turn...then 2nd exit to go straight, 3rd exit to turn left, and 4th exit for a U-turn.

Not likely...Ikkabar wrote:Is it possible that there will soon be a new housing development to the north or south, accessed off the roundabout?
Only that one that's there in the image (in the last year or so...)Ikkabar wrote: If there is then I would map it, otherwise I'd leave it as it is, and only map it if there are a lot of UR's for it.
The road doesn't change names at the roundabout, the road changes names at the town border which is to the west of the roundabout. So we're still going to have the extra node "issue", but I don't think that is enough to warrant not mapping it...WeeeZer14 wrote:2.) The road appears to change names here. The roundabout makes that change more obvious and stops (or slows down) an editor from trying to "fix" things and propagate one name to the other segment to delete the junction representing the current name change.
Very good point...WeeeZer14 wrote:1.) It does represent an "obstacle" that must be dealt with. Being told your next turn is in 3 miles and then coming upon the roundabout in the dark of night could be surprising, confusing, or even dangerous (if the person is stupid and relying on Waze too much).
Someone already tired to (and did it incorrectly) after my original post...WeeeZer14 wrote:3.) Someone is going to think there should be a roundabout there. Do you trust the average editor to do it right?
As always, Alan does a good job so summarizing everything, I'll be mapping this shortly...AlanOfTheBerg wrote:Despite not liking having to do it, I would map it. WeeeZer14 and others have posted good reasons why it should be mapped.
