Wrong location in the Map Editor

Postby treeboy » Sat Feb 18, 2012 11:46 pm

When in Waze Map Editor my location along the top bar says "Portola Valley, California" which is incorrect. I'm not sure what the correct location name would be perhaps Ukiah if the location is taken form 15 minute quad names or Fort Bragg if it's the nearest community.

Thanks for the heads up. I thought since I am relatively close to Portola valley that it was some mix up.

Search the forum for Portola Valley and "smudge cities ". This particular one drives us all a little nutters :evil:

Post back if you can't sort it out; I'm on my phone right now, but once I'm back (or others) can surely give more details on how to hunt this monster down.

It's everywhere. Well, not really, but it is all over the place. mapcat is working with a database extract of all segments named with "portola valley" as the city in an attempt to get it removed from all the incorrect locations.

I'm not sure how that is progressing, but I know I remove it from segments regularly.
