If you ask Waze, they will probably say "no" (eventually).

I've found it is possible to fetch all the roads for an area equivalent to zoom=2 with reasonable performance.

Can WME Validator find these roads for you? It has the ability to pan the editor around to gather more data...

Find a way to combine it with a database and let it run for a night ;-)

In fact the best solution for me would be that WME could load paved roads at all zoom levels.

I understand, it would cause heavy load on the server. Do you know if the api allow to ask for a specific type of road only instead of getting everything?

The problem is that it it is too slow, it takes several minutes to scan and the max width of the screen is around 40km. I'm working on Algeria and it is big as 1/4 USA and The drivers are paving sometimes but do not validate the roads and do not tell me, so it can be anywhere

No only roads created in the editor shows at all zoom level. Paved roads with the client are showing at 200m but are editable at 100 only.

Ok I understand that, because it could cause heavy load on the database. So I continue stalking the map.

In fact another solution would be that WME would show them at every zoom level, it would help a lot.

Script idea

Postby kpouer » Sun Jan 05, 2014 10:32 pm

Hi,
when editing in africa, sometimes people are paving roads but it is very hard to find them because they don't say it, and it can be anywhere and searching in thousand of kilometers at 200m zoom level is not very efficient.
An idea of script would be a "scanner" that would scan a box and find if there are unedited roads.
When finding them it could give a permalink.
