If a gas station shows up red it is likely missing the brand or address info.

Dumb question, but why not just subscribe to the thread ?

You will actually get notified when someone posts, including Tim when he updates it.

Maybe Tim should add another checkbox for
[ ] Reading Glasses?

Open extensions and drop the file onto the window itself , not the tab.

As mentioned earlier, it's due to a WME bug, not related to the highlight script. Maybe Tim can change the script to immediately update/save each setting as it is toggled.

Re: Script to add Highlights for Segments & Landmarks - v1.0

Hello,

First of all, I would like to thank the author for this great script.

One of the feature that can be very useful is the possibility to highlight unterminated roads because it allows to highlight connection problems.
However, it is currently not fully operational as it not really the original purpose (which is to highlight unterminated roads olny).

A suggestion would be to have an additional option to highlight roads which are connected on one side only or on no side at all?
Would that be feasible ?

Thank you for feedback.

If you're talking about road segments that are connected to a junction that has no other road segments attached to it ... well, that's a different story. It probably could be done, but I'm not sure how valuable that would be as an editing guide (since it would flag all properly-represented dead-end streets as potential problems :o).


Thanks for the reply.

Here is a permalink pointing to a place where there are 4 roads with connection on only one side. Three are highlighted, one is not. https://world.waze.com/editor/?zoom=7&lon=4.39773&lat=50.80443&layers=BFTFTTTFTTTTTTTFTTTTFT

I understand why these dead-end roads don't show up the same way. My point, as you say, is to really highlight roads with connection on only one side because it is a good tool to find where there are real connection issues rather than dead-end roads.

As you say, not sure it is feasible. But it would be so great ...

Yes. You are right.

Back to the original suggestion : It would be great to be able to highlight all roads having only one connection, unterminated or not.

Regards.

Hi Timbones.
I would like to thank you for the work you've done.
The script that you developed is a fantastic tool!

Last month, some users have destroyed the Italian maps and your script helped us a lot

In addition, I would like to ask you a question inherent to a system that can provide greater protection for maps...

Do you think is possible to create a script that can do some sort of backup of a map?

What I mean is this: for example, in this permalink, the map has been completed
https://world.waze.com/editor/?zoom=4&l ... FFTFTTTTFT

If a vandal will make some changes to the map, with your script I can easily see where he made ​​changes.
The only way to repair the damage done, is to edit the map again: if the problem is related to a few dozen changes, you can easily fix it.
But if the changes are thousands, it is very difficult to solve the problem in a short time.

It would be great if there was a system that photographs the map and keeps a memory of the original...

You think it is technically possible?

Thanks
Lino
