Rest Area page (US Version)

Postby kentsmith9 » Wed May 29, 2013 6:13 am

We (jasonh300, AlanOfTheBerg, AndyPoms, myself) have created a draft for a new Rest Area page looking for feedback. This particular page is very US centric. If we need to have a similar page(s) as this one in other countries we can disambiguate "Rest Area" to the other countries as required.

If you have any issues or concerns with the current Rest Area draft, please post your comments here for review by the larger group.

The idea for this page came from this thread which has been closed with all continuing conversation requested here.

After 7 days, unless there is significant disagreement on the current draft, we will officially open the Wiki page and link it to other pages as appropriate. The heading will change from it being a draft to a new page that might still get a few small updates. In typical Wikipedia form we should have the talk page link back to this thread, unfortunately most users will not even know there is a talk page for this Wiki article. :(

Thanks kent! I was totally going to suggest a wiki page earlier but forgot to. Looks like you were already creating it! Everything looks good to me though!

Suggested changes:

Do not name ramps
Name parking lot roads to "Rest Area" or actual name of rest area
Landmarks: avoid adding them, pending introduction of POI point symbol for rest areas

Rationale: fewer necessary changes, and same effect for drivers.

Can we add small landmark at the entrance of the rest area similar to gas stations?

There is a second landmark for gas stations?

You need to take screenshots without highlighting turned on. The PLot segments initially look like primary street type.

The page already has a landmark as part of the recommendation and then you asked about adding another one to the entrance like gas stations. Since a gas station is already a landmark, I do not understand why you add another landmark at a gas station entrance.

No, what I meant was... Instead of adding a big landmark, we could add a smaller one by the entrance. Maybe that would come up if one searches.

Ah, you were referencing mapcat's request to not use any landmark. Didn't catch that without a quote.

So, yeah, maybe. We're not sure whether that landmark type will appear in the app search. We know Airport does. Jason is running some tests about which landmark types appear in the app search.
