Ordinal number convention

Postby GeorgiaBreeze » Tue Dec 16, 2014 3:22 pm

Okay so I have researched both what is suggested and what is in practice and I am not sure how to assist a Tifton issue with street naming conventions. Their map report issue stated the streets in Tifton follow the convention (W 18 Th St) rather than (W 18th St). I found only one post in the forums that discussed 'ordinal' numbering and it said to leave the suffix 'th' out. However, in practice, it is everywhere. What is the solution? Should every street in Tifton, GA be fixed to W 18th St or W 18 St?

You absolutely right - and in any case it appears that at least for the town of Tifton, Georgia there is a LOT of editing to do. I can only imagine what West Eighteen Tha Street sounds like in TTS. LOL.

I could have gone without seeing that - but from what I understand, they live here in Warner Robins now. * face-palm * In the center of the state we pronounce it "Jo-Ja" 8-)

Breeze, I think I found and corrected all the "th" and "nd" errors in Tifton. Now it's just something else to watch for everywhere else.

As XKSpeed says the rural areas need lots of work. I'm spending more and more time in them.

One interesting consequence of changing names is how Waze voice recognizes it. Most people would say "Eighteenth Street", not "Eighteen Street".

Unfortunately not my area of expertise, but this should be considered.

Yes! Go for it! Waze has been out a while so I used to think map editing was "nearly complete". After taking a few rural "Sunday drives" I realized we're far from that. I would encourage all map editors to take a relaxing drive out into the country so you can edit out there. Many areas are still base import and need a lot of TLC. Some you can't even navigate in. Get the WME Chrome plugins and the issues are easy to spot.

One of neat features of rural editing is many roads are named after average Joes. I find myself pondering who is the Farmer McDaniel behind McDaniel Farm Rd. It's like reading a book.

One of my favorite edits was adding Paul Anderson Memorial Park in Toccoa. I spent 30 minutes reading about the guy. I'm tickled that you can see the shadow of the barbells above his head in the WME imagery. Paul Anderson Memorial Park

Far more interesting than editing a big city. But I digress...

A case of the pot calling the kettle... We're all from "Jawgah".
