Postby Timbones » Mon Oct 12, 2015 10:08 pm

What is WME Validator?
This script validates a map area in Waze Map Editor, highlights issues and generates a very detailed report with Wiki references and solutions (more info). The list of validations can be found here.

What is WME Validator Localization for United Kingdom package?
Localization package is a script that tunes WME Validator up for United Kingdom.
The script can enable/disable checks, set params and exceptions.

In United Kingdom, it mainly checks for incorrect names and abbreviations on streets.

Important Note 1: This is not the final version of this package, and there may be some checks that are missing or incorrect. Please post feedback and suggestions below, and check back for updates.

Important Note 2: Remember, not everything that Validator highlights is necessarily an error or needs to be fixed. Consider the these to be advisory warnings only.

How to install the WME Validator Localization for United Kingdom package?
  1. Install the required WME Validator (if not installed - Firefox requires the User Script Manager below to be installed first)
  2. Install the required User Script Manager for your internet browser (if not installed)
  3. Install the script from WME Validator Localization for United Kingdom
  4. Launch the User Script Manager Dashboard (Tampermonkey/Greasemonkey) and make sure WME Validator Localization for United Kingdom script is there.

I've recently discovered this script and it's been really useful – I've tidied up quite a few road names.

But, it keeps flagging up roads with the "Val" abbreviation for Valley such as Rock Val, Mansfield which seems to comply with the wiki.

Not sure if it's script error or user error. Any thoughts would be welcome.

@Jack
The script v1.9 needs to be updated by Tim..

@Tim
If the Wiki UK is correct then..
"Val" could be replaced by "Valley"
"Grove" appears twice
"Boulevard", "Broadway", "Circus", "Mount", "Ridge" could be added.. ;-)

Actually, "Valley" is the preferred spelling but we haven't gotten around to updating the Wiki.

"Boulevard", "Broadway", "Circus", "Ridge" are not common enough to warrant abbreviations either.

Is it possible to have this updated to not highlight roads starting with onto.
Take exit onto A45

This would bring it in line with the new naming policy for ramps.

Unless I've totally misunderstood the new naming convention.

Roads should never start with "onto". Waze says that before the name of the street.

I think there's currently an issue with the script in that it got broken when the last update to the editor was implemented. Mine's not working at the moment either...

In Chrome to a Hard refresh(cmd + shift + R/ctrl + shift +R) followed by a normal refresh (cmd + R/ctrl + R), that started it working for me.
