According to the visual map, That road is running the wrong way. :shock:

Thanks for this thread. I'll turn on the highlighting in WME Toolbox. I won't "fix" such segments generally, but I'll be suspicious of them and add junctions when there is an inexplicable problem around them, just in case.

Michelozzo in Italy raised an issue regarding the app not recalculating when he diverted on the road here. The response from Waze was to add the junctions on the loops. So someone at Waze thinks that small roads that connect to a main road at both ends can cause problems with routing.

More info on this.

I opened a new topic in routing with what I found. It is all related to routing from and to the same single segment (no junctions between).

What I found in that thread does not appear to be caused by a Same Connection issue at all, but instead some other kind of bad routing issue.

Based on what I am hearing in this thread, the Toolbox is highlighting the possible overlay of two segments on each other. Any other indication of these Same Connections should be ignored at this point. Therefore I do not recommend any change to the Wiki unless I missed something.

I've never used that script. I just know that JNF automatically fixes closed loop roads. And as someone else said, there was a problem with roads like the example you posted that was inherent to Cartouche. That problem went away with Papyrus and WME.

Nope when it involves
min 2 segments that starts and ends on same nodes => Same Connections segments
1 segment that start and end on same node => closed loop (note plural form or not)

As far as i remember it was about prety long segment that starts & ends on same nodes and it was brought up by waze staff as a source of possible routing issue ending with "could not find a route"

One "real" issue that this does highlight is two segments laid exactly on top of each other (probably by mistake). I've encountered a couple of very hard-to-diagnose problems that have been due to just this.

From memory, I thought that was the original reason for introducing this highlight.

That's something that definitely used to be an issue back in the Cartouche days, when the only way to connect segments was to "Connect in order of selection" -- there was no way the editor could know what exactly you meant by that. Other than that, though, all the examples I've seen so far appear to be "errors" only because Waze will give you the longer way around when it thinks you're pointing that direction. I would imagine if you started driving the other way then Waze would recalculate it the other way.

If what I am showing was not the original topic, I stand corrected, but I then don't understand why the Toolbox is highlighting these instances. I really thought that was what OyyoDams was talking about here:
ncc1701v wrote:
OyyoDams wrote:In this case 2 segments have the same starting and ending nodes. That shouldn't happen.

I have never heard that, but it might be a language problem. Certainly a _single_ segment shouldn't start and end at the same node. If you look at http://www.waze.com/wiki/?title=Junctio ... uide#Loops the examples are two segments that "have the same start and ending nodes" (one at the t-junction and another opposite it). Please clarify.

Now I see the loop example Ncc1701v highlighted (which I do understand) results in the same situation as what I think the Toolbox script is highlighting for me. Is this only being highlighted for me? I turned off all other highlight scripts and still see it highlighted from the Toolbox.
