Update on blank left panel when clicking a segment

Post by maiapas
Hi Everyone,

We hope you're doing well,

For some time, some of you have experienced a blank left side panel when clicking a segment. To solve this issue, we'll be performing a clean up of almost 400k "corrupted" street names in ROW, 14 in NA and 21 in IL. Almost none of the street names are associated with segments and thus, the cleanup will not have any negative effects.  We'll be starting the cleanup in IL and NA, and moving forward with ROW if the results are as expected. 


More information: 
  • As part of our infrastructure improvements, we've been looking into our database. We found almost 400k street names in ROW, 14 in NA and 21 in IL that are not connected to any segment.
    • In ROW, the 400k street names are associated with 608 non-existent cities.
    • In ROW, out of the 400k corrupted street names, 2468 are associated with venues. In some cases the venue is displayed with no address in the editor (because of the corrupted street/city), and in some cases the cleanup will solve the issue with the blank left panel.
 
  • Street names that are not connected to any segment  is what we call "corrupted data".  While it is unclear how these street names became "corrupted", it could have happened due to manual processes done in the past, related to our database. 
 
  • We believe this kind of data is not created anymore. We'll be able to corroborate our  hypothesis once the corrupted data is cleaned. 
 
  • There are 9 street names associated with 19 segments, one in Greece and the remaining 18 in Venezuela. For these specific 19 street names, we won't be performing any deletion. Your CM will reach out to the coordinators with a list of permalinks. Our suggestions are:
    • To update the address: either the street, city or country or set it to none.
    • To update the alternative address: city or street, or set it to none.



 Last but not least, we'd like to thank you for reporting this important issue and for insisting on it and not giving up on us images/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif 

The cleanup should solve it but please keep an eye on this and let us know if you encounter a blank left side panel when clicking a segment.  We'll let you know once the cleanup is finished in this thread. 


Thank you, 


Maia on behalf of the Map Squad

Many recent advertising campaigns have introduced invalid Street names and Cities into the database. Mainly applying full addresses into the Street field or creating country/country in the City field.
While editors are correcting these errors where found there are still 1000’s undiscovered.

What about street names used in places' addresses? In some cases there is no segment with such name; the street name refers a university campus or an industrial area instead.

Thanks Leonid!


All valid streets/venues have existing cities and therefore we didn't delete them (even if those streets are not associated with any segments).
