Just so I'm clear, does this replace WME US Government Boundaries?

Hey Justin,

Just duplicating my request to include Australia. We have a few people who aren't on discord.

Ituajr's been on top of our suburbs list. So he is probably the person that can find the boundary files for us.

If you let him know what you need, he can probably find it.

Thanks for this script! I usually run with the Cities layer on because I like to be able to easily tell when I cross city limits on the map. The colors in that layer were hard with some places; this script makes it appear much clearer. I like that it will highlight the limits of the city the map is centered on. One suggestion I'd love to see added is a dynamic city name label, similar to what exists in the WME US Govt Boundaries layer with the county name and ZIP code. I think that would make it a little easier to visually see especially when editing in areas where city limits run up together.

I have not run into it yet, but does the color of the highlighted city match any of the WME city layer polygon colors? Also Thanks for this amazing script! :D

[Script] WME Cities Overlay

Postby JustinS83 » Mon Apr 30, 2018 8:36 pm

WME Cities Overlay

Version: 2018.06.26.01

Greasyfork: https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/40837 ... es-overlay

Description: This will display the boundaries for incorporated and CDP places across the United States. The original KML files were pulled from the Census Bureau, but some states have elected to modify them by adding more townships in order to match how their state sets the cities for segments/Places.

How it works: all of the KML files are hosted in the script's github repository and when you cross state borders the new state's KML file will be loaded and the map will be updated to reflect the new city outlines. When you are focused on a city that city will be highlighted (if you have the option enabled) in a different color so it is easier to see that city's borders when there are other cities/townships/CDPs bordering the city.

Along with SM approval all states are welcome to modify their KMLs as they see fit, whether it be to add polygons or use a different, more accurate source. I will accept pull requests for the modifications or if you want to send me the modified file I will update the repository. If any non-SM sends modifications I will not accept the pull request or update with a modified file until a SM approves the changes.

Script github: https://github.com/WazeDev/WME-Cities-Overlay

US KML files: https://github.com/WazeDev/WME-Cities-O ... er/KMLs/US

MX KML files: https://github.com/WazeDev/WME-Cities-O ... er/KMLs/MX

Changelog:
Code: Select all
2018-06-26 - 2018.06.26.01 - Added manual and automatic updating of state files from the server
2018-06-22 - 2018.06.22.01 - added saving KML files to the browser database to prevent the files from downloading on every WME load

No, this does not replace the WME US Government Boundaries script.

No idea - the only time I have that layer enabled is when I am modifying city names :)
