2017 FC Review Complete!

Postby whathappened15 » Wed Feb 28, 2018 5:13 pm

In late 2017 the TN Department of Transportation published a full new set of Functional Classification maps, many of which included major changes. These maps are published in PDF format, divided up by Tennessee's 95 counties. Larger-scale "Inset" maps are also included for towns and cities, for a total of 182 maps.

On January 8, 2018, an aggressive editing project began within the AM community to review the FC statewide and implement the classifications. Our AMs reviewed each map to ensure that WME showed the correct segment type based on the DOT classification, per the state Wazeopedia guidance. In some cases this was just a quick review with minor changes, but in other cases miles and miles of road had to be upgraded - often through basemap regions.

I'm proud to say that as of February 27 the project has now been completed. All 182 maps have been reviewed and implemented in just 50 days. Special thanks to the following editors, who contributed to wrapping the project up faster than anyone thought possible: grsmhiker, kyhtak, larryhayes7, Luke6270, and ropaswan.

This project also included cross-boarder coordination with neighboring states, and so we would like to thank our neighbors in SAT, MAR, SER, and SCR for their assistance along the way, ensuring continuity across state lines where the FC systems are not coordinated.

There is still plenty to do across the state, but we can put this project to bed until TDOT releases the next round of maps. Thankfully, we now have a baseline complete, and a system in place to identify changes on the next round of maps.

Great editing everyone! I am sure the Tennessee users will appreciate all the time you put into the project.
