Could you elaborate in newbie language haha

WMEOD is a script I wrote to search the Ordnance Survey street and place name data for possible matches when a road segment is selected in WME. Every 6 months the OS release an updated copy of the street name data, and the latest update arrived at some point in the last few days... In order for WMEOD to use the data, it first needs to be processed to chop up the single UK-wide data file into smaller chunks that the script can handle, then uploaded to my server so the chunks can be accessed by the script.

Re: [Script] WMEOpenData v2.4 (20140518)

Sorry about the delay in releasing the new OS data, you can thank my not so SMART system drive for this... regular monitoring of the SMART status suggested the drive was in good condition, yet delving into the Windows event log showed bad block errors being thrown left, right and centre :roll: So one emergency system drive swap out later, we're back in business.

2.4 uses the latest OS Locator dataset, which contains a shade over 4000 additional entries compared with the previous dataset. It also fixes the Canaries Map Tracker functionality (oh look, they've renamed a couple of internal variables for no discernably good reason... been taking programming lessons from the Waze team, eh?). For Chrome users, I've tweaked the permissions a bit too so it no longer requests access to the entire internet :D

No changes to the script itself, however as I've now migrated all my scripts over to the GreasyFork repository I've edited the 2.4 release post above to remove the temporary download location.

I'd love if this auto-updated. It's no big deal but it'd be nice if it 'just worked'. This script has saved me a million times though, and again, thanks for keeping up with the OS Locator dataset releases :)

Following hot on the heels of the mid-year Locator update, June brings a Gazetteer update, access to which is now provided by 2.5...

As an aside, in 11 days WMEOD celebrates its 2nd birthday. It was the not only the first Waze script I wrote, it was also the first GM script I wrote full stop... Without those original 10 lines of code helping me to ease into the world of GM scripting, who knows whether I'd have considered attempting anything like URO+ or LMUR, and god only knows how many more map edits I'd have racked up without the constant distraction of tweaking just one more bit of code :D

Re: [Script] WMEOpenData v2.6 (20140629)

For those editors who end up traversing the whole of the UK in a single editing session, 2.6 should now help keep the browser memory requirements in check by unloading any cached OS Locator block data which hasn't been accessed in the last 10 minutes.
