TX Landmark deletes

Postby d_a_price » Wed Dec 05, 2012 7:16 am

I don't know if this is part of the same incident, but I've noticed a few major and minor landmarks gone in TX:

University of Texas (IIRC this was divided into several smaller landmarks for different areas of campus): https://www.waze.com/editor/?lon=-97.73 ... TTTFTTTTFT

Park landmark: https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=4&lat ... TTTFTTTTFT

Baylor University: https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&lat ... TTTFTTTTFT

Yes, they can overlap, BUT there is no distinction between them in the client, just extra names floating in one giant light blue blob, which is why it is not recommended. There is also the difficulty of editing these overlapping landmarks, sometimes smaller ones gets buried below larger ones in WME and can't be selected without moving the larger one out of the way.

Personally, I enjoy the red light cameras posted on the Interstate Highways (which don't have any traffic lights on them & in a State that doesn't allow any type photo enforcement).


there are very few legitimate red light cameras in my area and I have double and triple checked all the "approved" ones with the lists published by the county/city police.
Whenever I ever see new ones show up on the maps, I just delete them, free edit points.


I wish Dallas were that predictable!!!

1) I know the 30 has nothing to do with it, they just crack me up when I see them on major highways with speed limits of 70, in a city that does not allow usage of Speed Cameras.
2) I'm not referring to alerting them in the client, I'm referring to alerting them similar to a UR.
3) Thanks, I'm going over that! :)

Yea, the forum log-in has been doing some odd things for me today too... I've had to login at least 5 different times today - more than in the past 6 months combined...

What really peeves me about this is that no alerts are generated for reported speed cameras... not even after 20+ users report it; yes, I've seen a lane of an intersection with over 20 reported speed cameras.

1.) You know the 30 in the speed camera icon does NOT have anything to do with the speed limit for the camera, right?
2.) One million people can report cameras at an intersection. But an editor needs to approve the camera before it shows up in the client. If it is approved and not alerting, check that it is pointing in the right direction and with the right angle.
3.) Everything you wanted to know (probably) about cameras.
