I suppose that's why people submit URs when it happens.

Going the wrong way on a 1-way is just another penalty to the Waze routing model. It happens much less often now, but it can happen.

No doubt. :-)

Or really? Wow, that's bizarre. Even with that, you'd think that there'd be less of a penalty for going down the permitted way, and thus that would be the way it would route you.

Strange stuff, this Waze Routing system.... :-)

Sorry, off-topic, but to finish this up I think, for example: When toll road avoidance was first activated. There are many interstate bridges mapped properly as two 1-way segments, with there being a toll applied to only one direction of the bridge. Waze would route drivers backwards along the non-tolled segments. :roll:

Did it actually route the wrong way, or was the purple route in WME drawn the wrong way?

Could it be that the route associated with a UR is only a list of nodes, so when there's a roundabout with only 2 exits WME doesn't know which way to draw the route. I vaguely recall some confirmation from HQ about this too, but I can't find it.

I've seen this happen with gas stations too. The UR showed there were two turns (in and out of the gas station), yet the purple line continued straight along the main road. Adding an extra node removes that ambiguity.

Not sure. I haven't seen an example since I realized the purple route might not be the actual route given in the client.

WME Validator F.A.Q.

Postby berestovskyy » Tue Jan 14, 2014 2:14 pm

WME Validator F.A.Q.

  1. New! Search for a specific username
    Validator does support a search for a specific username. Click "search" tab and put a desired username(s) into the "Updated by" field.

    For privacy reasons the feature is available for country managers only. Regular users and area managers have "Include only your edits" option instead.

  2. Validator stops scanning when I switch to another browser tab
    Drag Validator's tab out to create a new window. Do not minimize it, just switch back to the original window.

  3. New! What is the custom check?
    Custom check is a powerful tool to highlight very specific map issues, not covered with built-in validations. See "Custom Checks Examples" for more details and examples: forum link

  4. New! Validator highlights closed roads
    You can suppress highlighting by adding a country-specific keyword to the street name. The default keyword is "closed" ("travaux" for France, "remont" for Poland etc.)
    Example: Main St (Closed) <-- this street will never be highlighted

    Note, Validator still reports those segments as #101 "Closed road". So if you scan an area and click "Show report", you will get a list of roads marked with the keyword.

    Wiki reference: Long term closures (USA)

  5. New! Validator reports issues outside of my editable areas
    Please make sure "Exclude non-editable segments" filter option is checked.
    Note: Validator consider a segment as an editable if you are allowed to change segment's properties AND change turns at both nodes. If a node is not loaded into WME (i.e. out of the screen OR current zoom level is 0-3), Validator assumes the node is EDITABLE.

  6. I'd like to enable/implement a check for my country
    Great! Send in a permalink to your country's wiki and the check will be enabled/implemented!
    You may also translate/localize existing checks: forum link

  7. There are too many highlighted segments!
    Apply more filters! For instance, to concentrate just on warnings and errors select "Exclude notes" filter options.
    To completely switch the highlighting off, just click the main view title "Validator" or disable "WME Validator" layer in WME layer switcher.

  8. There are too many permalinks in the report!
    Apply more filters! Close the report, select few more filter options and click "Show report" again.
    The permalinks in the report are sorted by the road type, so more important (i.e. Freeway) segments always come first.

  9. Severities
    ██ NOTE - or a minor issue. It's safe to skip notes.
    ██ WARNING - affects search, TTS or might affect routing. Please check it.
    ██ ERROR - broken routing. Please fix it.

  10. Validator reports "Might be incorrect city name"
    It means that Validator saw few segments with very similar city names (i.e. "Renens" and "Renens VD"). See "Might be Incorrect City Name" Check Explained for more details: forum link

  11. How to fix reported segment?
    Hover your mouse over the issue in the segment property panel to get a detailed description, reference link and "How to fix" instructions:

14.01.2014 v0.4.7:
- new check: 'Soft turns on primary road' for UK and Chile
- disabled 'Soft turns on drivable road' for Chile
- 6 new checks for Ireland: 'Incorrect Freeway/Major/Minor name' and 'Might be incorrect road type (Freeway/Major/Minor)'
- French localization has started! Thanks to arbaot!
- enabled "No lock on Freeway" for US
- disabled 'Incorrect Freeway lock level' for US
- fixed 'Unneeded node' (state comparison)
- fixed 'Same endpoints drivable segments' (for two unterminated segments)
- fix for slow computers: if there are more than 50 segments to highlight, they twinkle in turns, i.e. first 50 segments, then next 50 segments and so on

- other changes

Just a request, is it possible to make thinks blink slower (or not at all?). I think that I'll get an epilepsy attack one of those days...
