Not sure if this is the right spot, but I believe I have found a bug with the map editor. I cannot add a legal turn to a street:

Screen capture with turn unable to be added.

In the Image above, you can see on the South end of the Street that there is no way to add a right turn to the circle. This leaves directions always leading to the left regardless of which way is closer. I'm not sure it this is a systemic issue whenever there is a street configuration like this or if it's just a misconfiguration in this specific street. Any adice?

Just from the image it looks like Reserve Circle is a loop. A segment can't start and end on the same node, it needs an extra junction on it somewhere...

This is a huge problem because an unterminated dead-end can be miles long. The highlighted route may not be in sight. Remember, this is a navigation app. It tells you where to go. "Proceed to Highlighted Route" is never acceptable and immediately signals that something is wrong with the map.

The unterminated dead end problem is documented in the Wiki and discussed throughout the forums.

xtago wrote:Also you do know that if you move the end of a segment that has a junction the editor automatically removes the junction, you can only keep the junction if you move the junction itself.2


This only happens if you select the segment before you move the end. If you select the end node without selecting the segment, you can move it around without losing the end node.

No way to correct segments on editable areas

Postby Fabione72 » Thu Nov 08, 2012 1:58 pm

Hi,

I've got a boring editing problem.

I noticed a map error while driving on a road, and I'd like to fix it.

When I enter into the editing screen, I verified that, even if the whole road area is available for editing (that's very close to my last drives), the system says I'm not enable to edit it...

I checked the tutorial, I should be able to do it...

any suggestion? is that my problem or some kind of bug?

I'm using Chrome 22.0.1229.94 m

Ciao

Is the segment you're trying to edit locked by a higher level user? If you're trying to edit a major highway or complicated junction, it's common practice to lock these at a high level to prevent inexperienced editors from making changes.

Either way, you may want to post a permalink in the update requests forum along with the general location and a brief description and someone can try to help you out.

Which can fixed by deleting the segment and redrawing as two. That will have to be done regardless.

But I think either this isn't a loop road and that one side of the loop isn't really connected to the junction, or there is a geometry node very close to the junction which makes the right turn actually go left for just a few feet and then has a 180 link in it to the right. That would make both turn arrows overlap.

1) Is the road locked?
2) Have you seen viewtopic.php?f=10&t=31184 ?
