Street direction at some hours

Well I think they are going to tell you that they can't do it and that there is currently no interface or support for roads that change directionally based on time of day. But that shouldn't stop you from asking.

Have you asked Waze directly if there is anything that they can do?

Street direction at some hours

Postby zeoto56 » Mon May 21, 2012 5:07 pm

Is there an option to set the direction of the street when the hour change? In ex, from 9 to 12 the direction is N-S, and from 12-8 the direction is S-N.

thanks,

Well at least they seem to be working on something. That's good news.

They didn't tell me that they can't do it (they ignored my request that they might do it on the back end). Your prediction that they would tell me there is currently no interface or support for roads that change directionality based on time of day was correct. For what its worth, they said this feature will be available "soon" and that "it's still under testing."

Toronto has a lot of those.

Not yet. But if no-one think this an absurd idea, maybe I should.

I'm not sure what I'm proposing. But Rock Creek Pkwy in Washington, DC changes to one way for the rushes. A significant fraction of the URs in the city result from waze's inability to handle the timed directionality changes. I guess at this point, I'm wondering whether it would make sense to ask waze if they could easily change the data for this road to solve the routing problems that the timed directionality issue causes. It seems a little like when they handle road closures for the Boston Marathon or Carmagedon. Only in this case it would be left in place permanently (or until they provide a way for editors to enter time based restrictions).

Are you proposing that Waze just figure this out based on the data that they have without any way to control it in the editor?
