"Beech Hill" is everywhere

Postby usa_1i8h16z3 » Sun Feb 03, 2013 1:15 pm

Hello from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

I have a map display issue: the label "Beech Hill" appears almost continuously on my iPhone screen, no matter where I go.

As far as I know there is no place called in my area named Beech Hill, and I do not understand why it moves around so much.

Here are some examples:

It's most likely a "city smudge", or at least labels left over from one that was fixed, where the city layer has not been updated yet.

I have moved this thread to the "Update Requests" forum, to bring this to the attention of the most experienced smudge-hunters. ;)

Hello @SteveBoutilier

I apologize for letting you and others wait 3 years for addressing this.
First I moved this post to the appropriate local forum in NS.

Second I think the links created 3 years ago by @usa_1i8h16z3 are no longer working and I was wondering if you can either create new links to explain the problem.

When I searched for 'Beech Hill, NS' on Waze Map Editor (WME) I see this area. Now I need you to explain what is wrong? What do you see where? What is it that you should see instead and where?

If you reply with the information I was asking for I promise to find the best resolution for your problem as quickly as possible.

HM.

I've reported this too. See this thread for example.

Basically, areas labeled as "Beech Hill" show up everywhere on the app map. I've noted several areas, and scoured the editing map for any streets or places tagged as "Beech Hill" but come up empty handed except for this gas station. I haven't fixed this gas station, by the way, because I want to preserve the one instance I have found with this incorrect data.

This "Beech Hill" error is very annoying and I don't know what else can be done. Can the issue be pushed up to someone with better access to the map data?

What you should do is using the Cities layer try to identify map elements with that name that may be on WME and causing this.
If you are not successful finding them it may be an issue with smudge city.
You can use this form to report them. Keep in mind that it may take long time for staff to get to clean this, all depending on their other priorities.
I hope this is helpful.

OK, the form has been submitted. I'll monitor the situation and report any progress here. Thanks!

I have many areas I submitted long tome ago (months) and are still showing smudge city names, so a lot of patient please.

I recently got a reply back for a city name issue. 18 months.

Uggh. Well I guess it's not a critical problem, just esthetic.
