[Script] Live Map UR Layer v3.0 (20210207)

Post by
This is a first stab at hacking together a UR/map problems layer for the Waze livemap view. This version is intended for users to test the core functionality required in such a layer - namely the ability for a third-party script to retrieve UR/problem data from the Waze server when no such data is already present on the page, and to then display it somehow over the existing map view.

After installation, you should see a new checkbox at the bottom of the Live Map window, titled "Update Requests". Tick this box to activate the script. Once active, the script monitors for any movement/zooming of the live map view, and requests the current UR/problem data from the Waze server for the area being viewed. The locations of any received URs are then plotted on the map as a small red/blue box (map problems are not plotted at present).

The Waze servers will not return any data for an area wider or taller than 1 degree of lat/lon, so if the livemap is zoomed out too far the script will only retrieve data for the central area. The area in which data is being requested should show up as a translucent yellow box.

Note that the Waze server will only return data if there is a logged-in user, and the data returned is filtered according to the editable areas assigned to that user - this script cannot display ALL the URs/problems in a given area, ONLY those that the logged-in user would be able to edit.


Userscript version for Tampermonkey etc: https://greasyfork.org/scripts/1948-livemap-ur-overlay

Due to a combination of the additional effort required to generate web store release packages, plus the increasingly overbearing control-freak behaviour exhibited by Google with regards their policing of web store content, I no longer maintain or support the web store versions of this script, and users should migrate to the Userscript version in order to continue receiving updates.

What I do is zoom in, pick a start and end point using the live map navigation script. When you get the turn instructions on the left, click on one and a bubble will pop up on the map. One of the choices in the bubble is to open that spot on the edit map.

This is Great! Thanks for Script and your time.

Would there be a easy way to tweak the script to show all UR's but the waze automatic ones?

I refuse to fix those till the city layer is fixed. :lol:

Loving the new update! I'm glad to see you worked on it some more..

Most everything seems to be working except "Hide URs not including" and Hide URs including. Every time i toggle these on all the map & UR's disappear.

Also I was wondering with this script and your URO script if your able to put multiple items in the box with some sort of separator?

Having trouble getting down to the bottom to check that box. I scroll down and it slides back up. Tried to be quicker, and the window closes before I can check it. Thank you for working on this, I use it all the time and missed it when we lost it to the new live map.

Just installed the latest version, and I've noticed the checkbox to hide requests outside of my editable area doesn't seem to work. I'm getting update icons on the map where I am unable to edit them. Thanks!

Edit - Also, any chance on adding filters to show / hide URs with comments? Thanks again!

In other words, with the box unticked, what you see in LMUR should be the same as you'd see in WME, and any errors would then down to the server. If LMUR and WME are showing different URs when this box is unticked then it's something I need to know about, otherwise it's a Waze issue that I can't do much about...
Well with the box unticked, I'm still seeing icons and the big black circles in areas far outside my editing area, if that's what you mean.

Looks like even in the WME, update requests and map problems show even in areas that I don't have editing rights. So that's probably why they show in the livemap.
