[Mostly FIXED] City Smudge fixes (L5)

Postby iainhouse » Tue Jan 22, 2013 10:57 pm

Hi there.

I'm currently cleaning up the city names in Cardiff. As part of this, I have named all the "outer" suburbs individually, whilst making the "inner" suburbs (according to the Wikipedia article) all "Cardiff". Now I am cleaning up the outlying "Cardiff" city names, but have hit some L5 locks.

At this junction of the M4, most of the roundabout and some of the ramps are locked L5 and have "Cardiff" in the city field. Could you please remove that name?

Also, the A4232 starting with these two segments and heading west and north all the way up to this junction with the M4 needs to have the city name removed on main carriageway and connected roundabouts and ramps.

Also, whilst panning across Wales in the client, I have seen some linear smudges stretching off into the wild blue yonder - way beyond my area. ;) Could you please remove or replace the city names for:

These two segments, twinned with Little Stoke in Bristol.

There are 40 segments in the village of Malpas here that are linked to a large Welsh suburb. Given the relative sizes, I reckon the village needs to have the county suffix (Cheshire?)

Thanks in advance, Carl! :lol:

I know this was discussed in December, but I think the people trying to solve it were prevented from doing so by WME problems and then got diverted elsewhere. As this thread seems to be going all over the country, I thought I'd raise it again here, rather than resurrect the original Cheriton thread.


It's been fixed (in Dec, by Dave), but the city layer doesn't get updated very often (3-6 months), so it's still waiting for an update.

I can't identify them using WMECH, but the fact the smudge is still there is an indication, when it changes elsewhere to reflect segment edits.


There isn't an identically named segment, I've checked it.

Ref. here

I got rid of the "Chandlers Ford (Hants)" form of the city name (there were actually three different forms in use) on 9th January - the name and city boundary is still on WME.

And.....

Client map tiles don't get updated just because of city boundary changes, only when segments contained within them get changed. I.e. if you remove a smudge in the WME, the map tiles between the ends of the smudge will not get updated to remove the smudge until one of the road segments is modified within that map tile.

The Cheriton smudge is, apparently, playing hard ball, and it's being looked into.
