Finding objects tied to a city

Postby AggieJM » Wed Oct 26, 2011 3:04 pm

There is a section of the map in my managed area that shows the following city name (remove the leading asterisk):

*http://emarket.ua/objavlenie/sapogi-botforty-IDppiF.html

I've updated all of the streets in the area with a correct city name, but this city name is still showing up as an overlay on the map. Is there a way to identify if there are any other objects tied to this city that would cause it to still display on the map?

I've tried searching for it, but it drops the pin right on a top of one of the streets where I have already updated the city.

Thanks!

Thanks!

I'll have to check out that tool (and brush up on my French in the process).

The extension loads all the roads downloaded from the server. This is a larger data set than the window shows. I'm not sure we could figure out how to shorten the dataset based on the map view...

Likely this is to improve performance.

My thoughts precisely.

The city will display until the livemap tiles are updated, a process that is currently on hold but can normally take a week.

It used to be that these city names would only update once a month but it appears to be more inline with the normal tile rebuild process now!

But yes there is a community created tool for doing what you're trying to do. Search the forum for "Plugin pour papyrus" and learn French (or use Google Translate) ;)

Likely this is to improve performance. Likely Waze is downloading more than just the current view to improve performance as you scroll around the map. This is likely why if you scroll around in the editor the road layer updated immediately vs. having to wait a moment if you scroll further away from where you are editing.

I'm using the plugin. Can anyone explain how the plugin determines the bounds of the list? It seems to be related to, but not bounded by the current zoom level.

So Papyrus may download a bunch more roads than are displayed, and the plugin just lists whatever Papyrus decided to download?
