[Page Update] Cameras

Postby CBenson » Mon Feb 02, 2015 3:29 am

I updated the camera page to address the Max Speed for speed cameras based on this discussion as follows:
The Max Speed is stored as a unitless number that is compared to the converted speed based on the Unit setting selected in the App. Thus users will get alerts at lower speeds if Km is selected than if Mile is selected. That is if the speed stored is 45, the app will generate an audible alert if travelling in excess of 45 km/h if Km is selected and will generate an audible alert if traveling in excess of 45 mph if Miles is selected.

As raised here I believe this changed when the settings were added to WME to allow editors to choose units.

Accordingly, I propose to delete the above quoted language from the camera page.

I think that is a good idea.
You have evidence from test results.

This is a substantial change in how the camera works, and could be worth using the "recent change" template for some period of time.

Is there information on the "recent change" template somewhere?

Now that cameras can be added with the editor the camera page needs to be updated. I would propose something like this: https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/User:CBenson/Cameras

I've noted that camera type can be set in the camera type section and added a section regarding adding cameras from the Map Editor. What should we say about ranks and camera addition?

To make the review as easy as possible, I overlayed the original page onto the proposed change to get this change view.

https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/index.php?title=User%3ACBenson%2FCameras&diff=126392&oldid=126391

From what I can see these changes seem appropriate. I am good with them.

I updated the related page https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Map_Editor_I ... ments_menu

And I added a comment pointing out that this page is related.

Wiki Camera Speed:
The Max Speed can also be set for a Red Light Camera if it monitors for speed limit violations as well as red light violation. Leave the max speed set to blank if speed is not monitored. Zero is not blank; a max speed of zero will cause the camera to always generate an audible alert as discussed below.


Is it possible to set max speed of Cameras to blank in WME currently? It seems that max speed is set to 0 by default and cannot be changed to blank. So we have to enter max speed for Red Light Cameras (for example) in order to avoid audible alert in cities. I think this wiki section needs to be updated accordingly.
