Side streets in Westminster

Postby BugLaden » Wed Oct 29, 2014 12:30 pm

Hi y'all, just wanted to get your opinion on something. Westminster is an old town with lots of narrow side streets that really shouldn't have the same priority as some of the other streets.

Since service roads are now gone I was wondering how to prevent Waze from routing users down these streets. One idea I had was to mark them as PLots. Another was to upgrade the road types on the more main streets. Thoughts?

Parking Lots...or private roads...they pretty much act the same in the routing feature

You've got the right idea here. Looks like Westminster missed the FC upgrade bandwagon, so were seeing a ton of Streets, but few mHs and P-streets.

You can download a google earth file with the FC here: https://sites.google.com/site/nzahn1waze/resources

I'll also list some of the Big FC streets below:
MD97 (Malcom Dr, New Washington Rd) should be a MH from MD140 to MD32 (Sykesville Rd).
MD97 (Littlestown Pike) should be a MH from Lamb Dr to MD140
MD31 (New Windsor) should be a MH from MD140 to Stone Chapel Rd
MD27 (Manchester, Railroad, Liberty, Ridge) should be a MH from Random Ridge to Chapel
Most of these MH continue as mHs

Main (E & W) should be mH from Pennsylvania to MD97 (Malcom/New Washington)
Green (E & W) should be from Washington to Old New Windsor Pike
Pennsylvania Ave should be mH from MD140 to W Main.
Uniontown Rd should be mH from W Main to Stacy Lee Dr.
Old New Windsor Pike should be mH between Uniontown and W. Green
Anchor St should be mH between W Main to W Green

You can check the Google Earth file for primary streets.

For alleys, I use P-Lot roads because they suppress traffic reporting (I think) in addition to a routing penalty.

When you zoom out, you can actually see the gap in mHs and MHs, so maybe the streets were downgraded after the FC went out? Might be a good time to use the good old Auto lock for mHs and MHs:

Just save the code below as the URL in a bookmark, and click the bookmark when you are done, and it will lock MHs, mHs, and PSs to L3 & L2.

Code: Select all
javascript:(function(){var fwy_lvl=2;var rmp_lvl=2;var maj_lvl=2;var min_lvl=1;var pri_lvl=1;var absolute=false;var count=0;var UpdateObject;if(typeof(require)!=="undefined"){UpdateObject=require("Waze/Action/UpdateObject")}else{UpdateObject=Waze.Action.UpdateObject}function onScreen(obj){if(obj.geometry){return(W.map.getExtent().intersectsBounds(obj.geometry.getBounds()))}return(false)}Object.forEach(W.model.segments.objects,function(k,v){if(count<150&&onScreen(v)&&v.isGeometryEditable()){if(v.attributes.roadType==3&&(v.attributes.lockRank<fwy_lvl||(absolute&&v.attributes.lockRank!=fwy_lvl))){count++;W.model.actionManager.add(new UpdateObject(v,{lockRank:fwy_lvl}))}if(v.attributes.roadType==4&&(v.attributes.lockRank<rmp_lvl||(absolute&&v.attributes.lockRank!=rmp_lvl))){count++;W.model.actionManager.add(new UpdateObject(v,{lockRank:rmp_lvl}))}if(v.attributes.roadType==6&&(v.attributes.lockRank<maj_lvl||(absolute&&v.attributes.lockRank!=maj_lvl))){count++;W.model.actionManager.add(new UpdateObject(v,{lockRank:maj_lvl}))}if(v.attributes.roadType==7&&(v.attributes.lockRank<min_lvl||(absolute&&v.attributes.lockRank!=min_lvl))){count++;W.model.actionManager.add(new UpdateObject(v,{lockRank:min_lvl}))}if(v.attributes.roadType==2&&(v.attributes.lockRank<pri_lvl||(absolute&&v.attributes.lockRank!=pri_lvl))){count++;W.model.actionManager.add(new UpdateObject(v,{lockRank:pri_lvl}))}}})})();

Yeah just remember to keep an eye on the Unlock forum incase you have to help a newbie out. Also, if you see the save count max out at 150, save, then run the script again, because it missed some.
