I'm seeing updates in CT... The addition of the City of "W" and the Town of "gr" due to mislabeled segments (now fixed)... :roll: Still appearing on the map are the neighborhood of "Blue Hills" (all segments removed over 6 months ago), and "Canaan" (the neightborhood in the town of North Canaan") which was removed (relabeled "North Canaan") so we could label the actual Town of Canaan as "Canaan" as it was never labeled in the first place. :x

@skbun: different zoomlevels of the livemap are generated at different times with different data, which is kind of fun if you think of it. The routes that are planned in the livemap use the same/newest dataset as the client does.

To force an update for a citysmear it may be an idea to draw a railroad where the smear shows. After the next mapupdate the railroad can be removed et voila - smear disappear.

Client city layer is different than the editor one, if I remember correctly...

Thought I'd throw this out there as an FYI to city and state smear checkers - looks like the city layer in the NA tiles has updated again, at last! First time in months.

(I'd personally like to throw my hat in, still for say 'City layer updating much more often and probably more often than the map tiles themselves run - to minimize pollution', or 'Not relying on a city's origin point but rather nearby segments only for valid city dropdowns ( ) '

...but thank you, Waze. I hope this means you've been reading the city and state smear threads and are thinking about them. , , ...
