dear all,

Thank for you chrome extension, but I have this fault now when I go to WME:
"WME Validator 1.1.7 error:
This build of WME Validator has expired. Please upgrade!"

And WME Validator doesn't start.

Do you have a link for download the new version? or do you have a solution for resolve this problem?

Thank per advance.

David

thanks for your help, I wait the new version, but it's dificult to work with WME without this extension!

Nice tool!

I assume this takes account of countries where people drive on the left (and roundabouts are clockwise). Can you add Ireland to the list of countries like this? All our roundabouts are being reported as being backwards :)

There is a property in WME for left hand traffic and Validator takes it into account. For instance here is a "normal" (B->A) left-hand roundabout in Ireland: permalink and here is reversed left-hand (A->B) roundabout: permalink

Let me know if you want to completely disable this check for Ireland or change the check title/description.

Thanks for your response - however:

1. both of those roundabouts you mention above are correct (clockwise), even though one runs A->B and the other runs B->A. Possibly some of them are older and created with Cartouche, which may have created the segments a different way around (or maybe WME did once)
2. A great many roundabouts here (just pan around Dublin (we have plenty of roundabouts :) ) are reported as being incorrect, even when they're not.

It looks like 'newer' roundabouts (created around 2013) seem to run B->A and aren't flagged as wrong, but a lot of 'older' roundabouts (created around 2011) run A->B - both of these are correct on the map, but the A-B roundabouts are flagged as incorrect.

I suspect this is the case for other countries where people drive on the left, and possibly for all countries, including those where people drive on the right. (I haven't had time yet to look at other countries' roundabouts)

Can I suggest that you look around for older (2011 or so) roundabouts and compare with newer (2013 or later) roundabouts? (if this seems to affect drive-on-the-left countries only, maybe look at Australia, New Zealand or Japan and not the UK, since the UK has had a basemap import and may have more consistent roundabouts) I suspect that WME (or Cartouche) didn't always create roundabouts with the segments running A->B or B->A. For this reason, I don't think your roundabout correctness checking is correct, if it's just based on the order of segment end points.

Perhaps you could disable this check until it works consistently (and can handle both A->B and B->A roundabouts)?

Re: [Script] WME Validator 0.4.6 (BETA) / 12.01.2014

Would you consider adding country-specific checks for Ireland? I'm thinking of anything that catches road segments that don't comply with our road type wiki page:

https://www.waze.com/wiki/How_to_label_ ... s_(Ireland)

...for example:

- Only motorways (name begins with Mn or Mnn (eg M6, M18 or M50)) should have Freeway type.
- Only national routes (name begins with Nn or Nnn (eg N5, N21, etc)) should have Major Highway type.
- All Rnnn routes (name begins with Rnnn (eg R521, R448, etc)) should have Minor Highway type (note that some link segments to R- routes can have this type too, so the check should be that a road whose name begins Rnnn has this type, not that roads of this type must begin Rnnn)
- Names in parentheses after city names *are* valid (for example "Blackwater (Wexford)"). We use this to disambiguate city names when there is more than one city/town/village with the same name. The name in parentheses is the county name for the duplicate city. This is only for duplicate city names, not all city names.
- Cardinal direction indicators on motorways (such as the 'N' in "M7 N") are never in parentheses.[/list]

thanks!

Sure, let's do it!

Excellent - thank you!

Shall we check if a Mnn road is Motorway, if a Motorway is named Mnn or both?

Both, I reckon: check that all roads beginning Mnn are of type Freeway, and all roads of type Freeway begin with Mnn.

Sure, Validator reports incorrect city name only if it sees "Blackwater (Wexford)" and "Blackwater" names during the same map scan. You can use "Clear report" button to clear the city cache.

Please give me a permalink if you have a problem with this check.

Ah, OK - I thought I'd seen it complaining about a town with this pattern in its name. I'll keep an eye out and see if I notice it again, and give you a permalink if it does.

So, Motorways are either 'Mxx' or 'Mxx[space]<N, S, W or E>'

Yes - the cardinal direction should *almost* always be there (because motorways are always split) however motorways *occasionally* end with a roundabout or a short two-way stretch that doesn't have a cardinal direction.
berestovskyy wrote:Majors are 'Nxx' or 'Nxx[space]<local name, i.e. letters, digits, spaces or dots>'

Almost, except that major highways can also have cardinal directions (just like motorways) when they're split. (although I guess the regex that matches 'Nxx[space]<local name, i.e. letters, digits, spaces or dots>' would also match 'Nxx[space]<cardinal direction>' too, so that's fine).
berestovskyy wrote:Minos are 'Rxxx' or 'Rxxx[space]<local name, i.e. letters, digits, spaces or dots>'

Exactly! (split minor highways can also have cardinal directions (just like major highways) but the pattern for local name should match that too.

Thank you!

in current solution, the turn from segment entering roundabout to the outbound segment is disabled, what causes, that for this particular entrance the exit is not counted but for all other inboud segments the exit is counted. in my opinion this is correct setup, but the wiki states otherwise.

what would you think? is this an error? should it be treated different way?

Does this roundabout give the correct turn instructions? I've seen roundabouts with two segments connected to the same node that give 0-exit instructions for routes in all directions - and the roundabout reverted to giving proper instructions when each segment was given its own node on the roundabout.

Ich would like to oppose this one. In Germany, we frequently KISS Ramps, if the two driveways are merely separated by road markings. Getting all those marked would lead to - well - challenges. ;)

I'd like to oppose this too; the motorway network in Ireland is fairly young, and two-way ramps are quite common on some interchanges.
