Seems ok to me. The PLot landmark was added Jan 12th and is live. There's currently automatic "heavy traffic" being reported (the road is red) on "Av. Santos Dumont".

This does differ from testing preformed previously on NA, so perhaps this is yet another example of the separate infrastructures working unintentionally different.

We can break other myths? :lol:

The information is for the whole infrastructure, NA and ROTW.

So, the guideline not to snap them to a road is a valid one.
Well this is somewhat annoying as it means PLot segments are needed to prevent pollution from gas stations, convenience stores, coffee shops, and drive thrus.

That would include train stations, bus stations, airports, public parking lots (not business parking lots), hotels, car repair locations, amusement parks & sports/concert venues, gas stations, schools/universities, car rental locations, ALL 24hr hospitals and EMS/Fire/Police stations. As for mapping businesses, I would map businesses that are in large buildings. IE: Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart, Target... Pretty much any grocery store & big shopping malls like Mall of America for example.
Public Parking is already covered directly in the app without need of a landmark. Hotels, repair, rental, Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart, Target, grocery stores, etc are all revenue streams and just add clutter.

Editor issue. Somewhere there is a road or landmark with an improper city name. If you have the highlight script, it makes it easy to find.

I have only played with reporting issue on a PC once and that was in my edit area. Left click in the area on live map you want to report, should get a ballon with origin and destination and report error at bottom.

Maybe because I work at one, but I agree. In Illinois, they are a safe haven to drop off new borns, no questions asked.

Here's hoping they do it. Personally, I'd like to see PL roads not display at all in the client and be their own layer in the editor that can be turned off. Visual clutter goes away, problem reports for parking lots can go away. Only drawbacks would be it's still data to be transferred to the client and the extra nodes could effect routing times. Not sure if there are ways to avoid that.

My opinion is the landmarks list is slightly modified list of the TIGER objects that were available during the basemap import. I don't think there has been much significant thought about how appropriate this list is for the purposes of waze.

Just to be clear, the POIs searched aren't the landmarks in the waze database, correct?

I think it might be a problem as waze treats these differently. I believe the characteristics of parking lot segments include: a significant routing penalty when transitioning to a non-parking lot segment, suppression of jam display and suppression of MPs. You lose these features if you use dirt road. Further, dirt roads are avoided in routing if the user has that setting selected in the client.
