Is this Landmark snapping to roads?

Post by tonestertm
Looks like this might cause problems. Since I'm new to this I wanted to verify before I change it.

I happen to know that southbound Glendale gets mighty crowded at times.

Edit: finally found the answer to some of my questions, which are now deleted.

So I should fix, right?

Well, the worst part of it is that it's set to Gas Station type. Looks like that one came from the basemap, so that's an error caused by Waze changing some of the landmark types.

It should probably be changed to Parking Lot, which will stop traffic problems in the surrounding streets, however, you're right...it needs to be moved off of the surrounding streets or traffic reporting for the real traffic on those streets will be suppressed.

I usually try to line up Parking Lot and Gas Station landmarks with either the curb or the sidewalk (assuming the aerial images are aligned properly), especially for a very wide street Just because you've broken the landmark away from the road segment, you still don't want the landmark covering the right-hand lanes.

Thanks,

I had already submitted a change for the Gas Station designation. I found a couple of posts indicating that the admin creations from 2009 are most likely autobot work from the basemap, and since Gas Station was the at the top of the list, it was automagically erroneously assigned to a lot of areas, including shopping centers, golf courses, even a movie studio lot. So I deleted those questions from my original post; maybe I shouldn't have....

I'll go ahead and change it, and a couple of others I've found in my local area. Thanks for the confirmation.
