When I looked around, I still noticed stay sections and one segment is still one way. https://www.waze.com/editor/?lon=-81.43 ... s=67020365

Also in that view I noticed the roundabouts that should not be there...

There are still two stray segments - https://www.waze.com/editor/?lon=-81.43 ... s=66794992
and the other is further southeast (on the same road - Flora Blvd)

Also while you are in the area, the roundabouts at the end of the streets should not be there. http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Crea ... _dead-ends

Some other spots in that area that could use your attention:

* This parking lot is badly in need of help. If you look carefully in the editor, you'll see that the outer one-way loop doesn't have a junction at the point where it ends and rejoins with the main road; so Waze thinks it's a dead end. And leaving aside the question of whether the smaller inner two-way loop should be mapped at all, it has the same problem.

* This segment has the same problem (it's not connected to the southbound road).

* This segment should connect with Dyer Blvd.

* And more substantively, ranging a bit farther out, it looks like there are still a few roads in the Waze map that are just flat-out mistakes -- leftovers from the basemap, which unfortunately contained lots of short nonexistent roads. This "road", for example, appears to be almost entirely a fantasy. When you see a dead-end road jutting off in an odd direction, check to see if it's an actual road (which you can quickly do by pressing Shift-R to turn off the Roads layer in Waze, letting you see the underlying streets better).

New here, need orientation

Postby TrevorFL » Tue Oct 16, 2012 1:48 pm

Hello all!

I am a new wazer. I am learning to to the proper editing in my local area. and yes, I am reading the manual. :)

I got this situation (link attached) and I think it is to cluttered. But before going ahead and doing something wrong I want to ask the experts is this intersection is fine the way it is or what you may do to fix it.

Thank you in advance

Totally agree. Those roads do not fit the guidelines to be split and the intersection does not need to be set up with turn lanes either. Not appropriate. Delete and re-do.



Thank you all for your quick reply. I will do what. Did not know I was able to "lock it" when I am only a level 0, but will do it so they don't do this editing mistake again.

Have a great day.

Ok, I was just about to start fixing this and suddenly stopped. This is is a long road with a long median. Regardless this, should I just create a one "both way" road in the middle and delete the "one way roads"? Or should I do it just at the points (junctions) close to the intersection area?

Thank you again for the help.

Ok. I finished the editing. That was a lot of work. ( I am new). Hope everything was good. Now I requesting that it get locked so it will not be easy for someone else to change it.

Thank you

:)

Was told to fix some issues. I did it and was asking if the intersection is properly set now. :)

Thank your for your reply.

Indeed. Nothing like the "before" picture! (We should have taken a screen shot for posterity.)

These circles are small enough to be represented simply by extending the straight road segments across their centers.


Ok, I really hope there is no problem now. :) I learned several interesting things thanks to the help I got from the people here. I do appreciate all the help I got from you all.

Thank you

I think I will still work the with easy fix for now. Once I get more experience I will deal with the hard ones. To bad there are so many roads that are split when one two way road will suffice.

Edited:

I did four roundabouts. It was a not easy for me. I got many errors when I was trying to save my work. I read the manual. After several attempts I was able to manage. Do you think I should do all of them in that neighborhood or leave it as is?
