I would like the script to check for missing website address of gas stations. Also to work when non-English language is selected. Thanks.

Hi, it will be helpful if the script can scan for now obsolete category "Residence/Home". There are places on the map with this category and I would like to take care of them.
Regards.

These are not "obsolete", Residence/Home is the category that RPPs use.
I am talking about the Residence/Home that was available in Categories list and now it isn't. Here is permalink

The check you are looking for would need to check that category is set && attributes.residential == false
Where do I have to put this check?

As I've started to use the script more intensively I would like to ask if it is possible to scan street names of Places.

Wondering if there is a way to take an existing area shape in WME and use that in the WAL script. For example, I've drawn this area comment to cover a village within a town:
https://www.waze.com/en-US/editor?env=u ... 146.289655

(or is there a way in WME to export that such that it can be imported into WAL?)

Thanks for the quick reply.

I had initially drawn an area comment so I could share that area with other editors. It wasn't too complicated but took some time to accomplish. One of the drawback is the comment area is filled and not just an outline.

As you suggested I did actually overdraw it and saved in WAL - along with generating the WKT file. The benefit of the WAL area is it can be drawn as the outline - perfect! Drawback is that the WKT file would have to be shared with others ... they'd have to have WAL installed and enabled.

I'll probably take the approach of just drawing future areas in WAL ...

Be nice if WME allowed for the export of WKT for areas ...

Nice! I guess I should go mousing around WME more - thanks for the pointer!

Hi, is it possible to speed up the scanning process so it will be possible to scan a state for places at reasonable amount of time. Regards.

I've just posted a new version of the Streets plugin (1.7.0) that adds the ability to detect streets that either do or do not have a shield.
