Here's WME Colour Highlights Beta v1.4.4 (uploaded 10:35 GMT, Nov 5th)

This will include "No City" or "No City, State" in the list of cities, overriding the gray No City option.
For example "No City, Idaho" segments can be clearly seen around Virginia City, MT.
Other interesting test cases are Detroit, MI and Buffalo, NY, with a mess of states and countries.

Edit: As for States appearing in the list of cities, I have no idea why this is happening. The city of "Washington" really is in the list of cities from Waze, so must be a bug at their end. The only thing that is different about the "state" cities is a much higher ID number, around 100,000,000+. I've attempted to filter out these cities, which will hopefully not hide any real cities.

It should work, I think. :)

A few changes to my latest beta version (v1.4.6)

  • Show both states and countries when near border (thanks skbun)
  • Highlight nodes on main roads that have revcon or selfcon (experimental)
I'm considering re-including the 'measles' to the trunk of this script. In this version, red and purple splodges will appear on main roads (i.e. not streets nor non-driveable). Soft-turns are not shown. You can still see the full diagnostics by clicking on a node.

Bonus: If you have 'Brian's script', then you'll see a link to activate it's functionality. There will also be warn a warning if it's not working.

Let me know how you get on with it...

This sounds like exactly how it should work. You'll only see the country name if there are streets in the view from more than one country.

He answered that he uses Facebook when logging in to the mobile client and have now decided to edit the map with this Waze generated username.

Hmmm.... I see. Before now, world_* and usa_* users were not edit the map, so this Facebook thing is new. I'll see if I can include them in the list...

Guess what?

I've for another beta for you to play with: v1.4.7

Just a few tweaks to some existing highlights, most notably matching city in alternate streets will be dashed yellow (thanks to skbun). Segments that aren't connected at all (no nodes) will be bright, unpaved red, and segments that loop back on themselves will be lime. The 'measles' are a slightly stronger colour now.

Can now theoretically highlight usa_* and world_* editors, though I haven't tested this.

Enjoy! :mrgreen:

Only on major roads, plus any single node or segment you select.

Check that the option mentioned above is enabled.

Nope. It's really not necessary to fix every single warning on every side street. If a junction has a real a problem, then a user will report it, and specific nodes can be diagnosed by selecting them.

Concentrate on making changes that add real value to the map...
We'll ask Waze to fix their connectivity issues.

I read earlier posts (page 25?) where people had the same problem as me but apparently the option was more obvious to them because they found it right away and apologized for being so blind. I may have to do the same. It's not with the other highlighter options or on the node/street info box when you select one.

What level are you? Only Area Managers (level 3) and above get to access to the Advanced Options.

Re: [Script] Highlights for Segments & Landmarks - v1.5 Nov

Postby Timbones » Fri Nov 16, 2012 3:42 pm

After getting a mention on the Waze blog today, I figured it was time to publish this latest release...

> Latest published version is v1.5: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/141050 Image

  • Show city names with state and country if near a border
  • Show matching city in alternate streets with dashed yellow (thanks skbun)
  • Highlight nodes on main roads that have revcon or selfcon
  • Highlight segments with no nodes (red) and unbroken loops (lime)
  • Highlight segments by anonymous editors (usa_* and world_*)
  • Notification of updated version at userscripts.org
  • Minor tweaks and improvements

(Note: this is functionaly identical to Beta v1.4.7, so don't feel you have to upgrade if you have that already)
