Re: [Script] WME Color Highlights - 1.81 Mar 2014

Highlights merely overlays a colour, with a degree of transparency. I don't believe we can recolour the roads -- though we might be able to put some colour overtop to get it close to the FC map colours. Alternatively, we don't set transparency, and it blocks out street names...

I'm also assuming you mean that it basically colours the Waze map to match the colour scheme on the FC map, let's start with one state -- if you get me the colours (in HTML #xxxxxx format), I can look at making something simple (it would be a separate script) that adds that overlay. Once we have it working for one state, we could look at expanding it out.

Oh, some other hurdles: it's not a 1:1 match from type to class; a Waze Freeway can be in FC either Interstate or Other Freeway, for example. Also, some states color rural classes differently than urban (others use the same colors, but dashed lines, which is no big deal).

Without further ado, here are the colors for two sample states – Louisiana and Michigan

Louisiana
Freeway: #007aff (Interstate) and #ffba00 (Fwy/Exp)
Major Highway: #ff3511 (Principal Arterial)
Minor Highway: #39ad00 (Minor Arterial)
Primary Street: #be3eec (Major Collector) and #ffff3e (Minor Collector)

Michigan
Freeway: #1474fb (Interstate) and #a821e3 (Other Freeway)
Major Highway: #f73723 (Other Principal Arterial)
Minor Highway: #885a46 (Minor Arterial)
Primary Street: #fda929 (Major Collector) and #3da61c (Minor Collector)

Not sure what to do about FW and PS; maybe two alternating colors?

There are 2 hurdles here:
  1. Each state uses its own color scheme.
  2. It would not account for US and state highways, although this could be programmed in for each state too.
Believe, though, that if I knew how to write one of these things, I would be all over this. :D

I installed v0.7.1 without a hitch in Chrome. It's management tab shows up in the left edit panel of WME with the color selection boxes, associated "dash" check boxes and the Change road type labels check box. However, even when I check the Change road type labels option those label boxes never show up. I have clicked the Refresh button on the management tab and have done a browser window refresh. I have closed Chrome and reopened.
Also, no option is showing up in the Layers dialog to select for showing the FC Highlights. Any suggestions?

I will have to post when I find one again. Should have saved the PL at the time, and didn't think of it.

Would you mind posting a PL of an example of a difference?

Thank you for this script by the way.


Not sure why it would be different, it is my understanding that this script pulls the data directly from TxDOT. Unless TxDOT does not have all their information synced.

If the state is included in the script, it shows what the FC a road should be based off the FC map from the state. It doesn't do the comparison, just shows the roads in FC highlight so you can compare.
