Re: [Script] WME Validator 0.9.2 (BETA) / 22.03.2014

I've also been seeing issues with elevation. Changing a junction, or maybe the elevation of one segment attached to the junction, seems to drop elevation from all the segments in the junction. This appears to be true even if I select the unexpectedly modified segments -- the standard WME segment properties show blank elevation.

If I have a segment that has directional or reverse connection issues and fix it, after I save, it gets highlighted for elevation out of range, but it wasn't highlighted for that before. (I.e., when I select the segment, it only shows the reverse connection problem, it does not also show an elevation note.) This may simply be a symptom of the above -- until I changed the junction to eliminate the reverse connection, perhaps the segment had a properly assigned elevation, so there was no reason to show an elevation note. Once I saved, and the elevation was lost, then there was a reason to display the issue.

So I'm going to vote for there being a problem with WME killing elevation values right now, or a problem with JNF/toolbox doing it.

I did have a really estrange behavior today...

I'm in the office, with a company computer... I had occasionally entered the editor from here, but I didn't have the validator installed.

I received by e-mail a request (with permalink) to enable a turn... I followed the link, which automatically opened the WME and to my surprise loaded also the validator... Is that normal? :roll:


Filter by city does this.

And Validator already has some alt name support -- one of the checks is "Empty alternate street." You can't create this sort of problem anymore, but if a segment is currently set up with an alt city name but no street name, it will ight up.

1. and 3. seem ok for me.

I don't get the idea behind 2. You want to mark all right/left turns that are disabled (red arrow)? What's so special about a turn of around 90° angle? :?


I think the idea is that while it is common to restrict left turns, it is uncommon to restrict right turns, unless there is a very sharp angle.

In gridlocked areas they are sometimes restricted. Sometime,s they are also restricted if there is a complex traffic pattern with traffic coming form too many directions, or if the street after the turn is very short.

Let me guess, left over from the earlier incarnation that actually made changes?

> - Validator now skips locked segments, so the locks may be used to hide issues for low-level users.

I don't like this one. I'm an AM, and if there's an error in the setup of an interstate in my area, I want to know about it. I can choose to ignore it (lots of validator stuff depends on context or is non-urgent).

However, if I think it might affect routing, I will request an unlock/fix.

Lest I be called an ingrate, my thanks for the whole system. It has helped me immeasurably.

I do not consider traffic circles (e.g., Washington Circle to be roundabouts. They are circular roads controlled by traffic lights. In a real roundabout, traffic does not stop and roads do not cross. However, I do somewhat see how instructions to enter and exit the circle could be useful.


The question of roundabout versus traffic circle has been discussed a number of times before. Since Waze doesn't have a separate traffic circle equivalent to roundabout, they are all roundabouts. This is also consistent with user expectations due to users not knowing (and not caring) about the difference between the two, and common experience across other GPS and mapping systems.

Validator is no longer highlighting issues on the map for me. If I click a problem segment, it does give me the list of things wrong with it, but there's no color coding anymore.

I have tried disabling all other scripts. I have made sure that the highlight issues on the map option is enabled.

The script is obviously not dead, because it does display issues on the highlighted segment.

Windows 7, Chrome 34.0.1847.137 m (current version), Tampermonkey is loading Validator 0.9.9

If done, I'd like this to be optional. The sub-categories are hardly comprehensive. Many of the places around me only have a general category as none of the sub-categories are appropriate.


Agreed. I don't really see a need for it at all. Even if they were more comprehensive, we don't have any rules currently discouraging use of the upper level categories.

I would like a custom check for for segments with "no name" and over "50 meters" long?

Is this possible?

and can anybody suggest how to do it?


try this:
template: ${street}:${length}
expression: /^:([0-9]{3,5}|[5-9][0-9]$)/

Matches from 50-99999 (note: includes 50, not just 51, and will not find any that are 100km or more)

Also note that this is not specific to road type. You might want to exclude PLRs, for example.
