I think he means that some of the segments can be combined into a single segment, eliminating the nodes that are currently there.

Several of the selected segments could probably be combined.

There are 4 in the above area that you might get rid of.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean.

Is Google stealing Wazer's work? I noticed on Google Maps, the intersection is almost exactly as I created it, and this showed up within a week of my updates going live on the Waze client...

Has anyone seen anything like this in the past?

Thanks for everyone's help on this. In the PM i received back from the level 1 user they said they were trying to fix problem reports that were generated from the road being too far from the GPS tracks. This is due to the fact that there are almost no GPS tracks for the new road layout and thousands for the old layout. That is why I have been tinkering with the intersection for a couple weeks since it opened. Now I'll have to start that tinkering all over again.

As for the junctions all over the place, that is from me having to screw around with the roundabout to make it oval. After driving through it a couple of times, it is probably even less round than I have it now but I can edit that later when I can confirm it. The tough part is because it is under an overpass and the client doesn't quite seem to know what to do when I drive through there, the GPS fix may never be spot on.

The "A" that is over the intersection must have been done by the level 1, I noticed it and checked all the segments and none have "A" as the city. I also noticed an area on Route 9 that just says "m" so he might have been doing this in multiple places. (https://www.waze.com/editor/?lon=-73.77 ... TTTTTTTTFT) I'm trying to fix that now.

I think I may have figured out what happened (or at least what brought the new editor to the area)... There is a "A" on the map in that area & the outline of the "old" oval roundabout in the city layer... Could you have possibly given the old roundabout a city of "A" instead of "Albany"?

I also see a bunch of extra junction nodes that are scattered around from the rebuild that should be deleted...

P.S. The new roundabout is shifted to the north from where the "old" one was - check your drive data.

Well this is one of those you do it once and learn your lesson type things then. I sent a PM...tried to keep it professional!

Either way, I have to create the intersection again from scratch and I will definitely be locking all the segments this time.

Anyone can edit anyone else UNLESS there are locks in place... New permissions changes coming in the future, but they depend on road's rank and user level locks...

I certainly think a PM to the level 1 editor is in order...
