Bodies of water?

Postby AggieJM » Mon Dec 12, 2011 9:07 pm

I'm assuming the large blue areas in the attached screenshot are bodies of water. If so, is there a way to edit the location of bodies of water in the map?

This particular location has no water on either side of the road. This doesn't display in Cartouche or Papyrus, but I do see it in the Live Map online.

Even with everything including landmarks turned on, I still don't see it. I originally assumed it was the area landmarks that went crazy, but you can see a difference in coloration between actual landmarks and the color on these sections.

This is my view from Papyrus:

This is the view on the Live Map, which matches the client:

Yes, there are bodies of water which are part of a base layer of the map as CBenson wrote, which we do not have the ability to edit. Not only can we not remove things like this, we can't even get Waze to allow us to have river islands which show as land. Right now, any large islands on rivers on which there are roads and businesses, etc., all show as just water, so all the roads are on blue water and we can't currently do anything about it.

I believe that there are some bodies of water that came in with the tiger data for the US base map import. I haven't been able to make any edits to such features.

You may need to turn on the display landmarks.
