Odd issue with road

Postby twentw » Sat May 11, 2013 7:53 pm

I'm new to the Waze editor, so maybe someone can help. There's a section of Memorial Dr. in Houston roughly between Terrace and Malone where I am unable to plot any route eastbound. I see no obvious issues when I look at it in the editor. Can someone check this and let me know what needs to be done?

That's a big permalink for a big map :P

The idea was to send a permalink with the start point and the end point that is failling for you. Zoom in, select the segment and click on the permalink link below. Repeat for the other side.

Even better would be to send a livemap permalink showing the route that waze provides you and a google or bing permalink showing what the route should be. But in all cases a clear start and end point.

That's exactly what I'm doing - I have it zoomed in and have all the road segments selected, but that's what I get. What am I doing wrong?

Also, I noticed on the editor that starting at Terrace it says "Most users did not follow the suggested route." This suggests it's not just me.

Got it. Sometimes the permalink uses the ?# format and then the segments are not selected. Taking the "#" out solves it.

Here's the live map link showing the wrong route https://www.waze.com/livemap/?lon=-95.4 ... g=47528405

And here's at least one red arrow breaking the route: https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=7&lat ... s=71892478

Can you edit the red arrow? If not you need to ask someone from the area (I'm from Portugal ;))

Thanks for your help. I have now edited the road so hopefully the issue will be fixed when the map gets updated.

Double check the remaining segments. I only had time to check the first red arrow. There may be more, one never knows.

twentw, do you know about the Shift-Z keyboard shortcut? If you press that, you can see all the restricted turns in the current viewing area of the map at once, but you won't necessarily be able to tell with which segments of a junction they are associated. Use shift-z to quickly spot suspicious restrictions, the press it again to put everything back to normal, so you can click on each of the segments around where you saw red arrows and verify the restrictions. It's a good quick way to spot some of the problems that get in the way of logical routing.

It's also a way for careless editors to go "fix" all the red arrows thinking that anything red needs fixing. Just because it is red doesn't mean it needs fixing. Shift+z does not show which segment the turn is restricted from, and that's really extremely important. You have to turn off Shift+z and select the segments connected to the junction a red arrow is pointing from to find out if the restriction is valid or if it needs to be allowed.
