Virginia 2025 Project

Postby subs5 » Sat Jul 28, 2018 2:44 am

Welcome to Virginia's way to systematically make all addresses properly route within the state and help clean up base map along the way. Waze's current method of only routing to a house number (HN) or residential point place (RPP) if the street name has the matching city as used in the search means that the vast majority of streets need an alternate city name added. Basically we need to have the USPS city name that 99.99999% of users use to match what is in Waze Map Editor. "None" or a weird Census Designated Place names (CDP) don't cut it for proper navigation.
So how do we eat this elephant? Same as the old saying, one bite at a time. Our "bite" is a permalink at the Zoom=2. Go through and get the proper road names and city names added for primary and alternate names. Add the HNs (preferentially or RPPs if needed). Add the speed limit, etc.
So jump in and help clean up Virginia and make the routing work throughout the Commonwealth!
Here is the Wazeopedia explanation and details of Virginia 2025
We are focusing in on editing areas that you already have, requests for new EAs are treated like any other EA request for time frame from last one and how you have been handling your current EA and editing abilities.

So come on down and join the Virginia 2025!

There is a new update to the US Government boundaries that shows the USPS routes so you can figure out what city to use for rural areas. Script is located here.
