This overhaul was brought up at the North American meetup last weekend.

Staff's response was that it is up to us to decide for ourselves how to type our roads to work with Waze's display and routing server.

One of Waze's routing server developers was present at the meetup and found the criteria to be agreeable.

This standard is complete and I believe that we have reached a substantial level of consensus within this thread.

Therefore, I move to implement it.

Good idea. Perhaps at the bottom of the article, in a sort of "appendix" section.

Best IMO is to have two columns, one with static and one with interactive maps. Even somewhere with interactive maps, some editors might wish to use PDFs instead, in case they have only one display but also an iPad or something.

Nothing, I suppose.

Sorry, CBenson was replying to me — I had started making a sheet too, having forgotten that you'd already put forth the effort. My mind ain't right today...

I will commit the content in yours to the Wiki at some point. As much of a pain as Wiki table formatting is, the information gathering is the real hard part. Now we just gotta get someone to submit a FOIA request to the Wyoming DOT! :lol:

I did it for the Louisiana page.

Is it worth Wikilinking the state names in the FC maps table to the state mapping resources pages? I think yes.

OK, so what do we have to do now? Do we have to put this up to a vote? Or is it sufficient to have substantial consensus in this Wiki Update thread, as we do?

Okay. Here is the final version of the revision.

https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Road_types/USA/Revision

After throwing in the other and non-drivable portions (which should be revised separately), I reorganized and changed some of the headings, revised some of the explanatory text, and added another example to the mbox.

Good?
