Re: [Script] Colour Highlights for Segments - v1.6.7 Jul 201

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like the script calls it a U turn when it's actually possible (i.e., self-con on a two-way segment) and "Self-connectivity" if it's impossible (i.e., self-con on a one-way segment).

A selfcon is an allowed turn at the end of a segment back onto the same segment - and it doesn't matter whether or not the segment is one way.

A revconn is an allowed turn from one segment to a second one-way segment, where that turn violates the direction of the second segment.

Hi!

Congratulation for making this useful extension. I'm using it often.

What is the difference in these versions for Chrome?
- http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/141050 / Ver. 1.6.7
- http://waze.cryosphere.co.uk/scripts/wm ... ights.html / Ver. 1.67

Why are two different? The "Average speed for segment" works only the second one.

Thanks!

All I know is U-turns are editor enabled turns, which are currently shown as light blue. And the other ones are violet color, which are somehow bad. And it would be even better, if Q fix was not removing u-turns, but still fixing the other problems.

Unfortunately, whilst editors can now control u-turns, the vast majority of them that I have seen are not the work of any editor. They are, presumably created by the Waze engine having seen drivers apparently perform a u-turn at junctions in the past. Mostly (in the UK) this will be people reversing into a side-road at a junction and then going back the way they came. Whilst all these u-turns are theoretically possible, Waze should not, in most cases, be using them for routing.

I am of the strong opinion that Waze should have removed all existing u-turns from the map before changing the editor to allow us to control them manually. That way, the only u-turns left would have been ones enabled specifically by editors.

A revconn is an allowed turn from one segment to a second one-way segment, where that turn violates the direction of the second segment.

Right, but that's not the distinction I was making. "Self-con" is only intrinsically a problem when it is on a one-way segment, since that's impossible. U-turns, which are a type of self-con (i.e., self-con on a two-way segment), are not intrinsically a problem, since they are possible, even if they are often not allowed.

A "true" self-con, or one-way self-con, is essentially the same problem as a rev-con, namely, that Waze has an allowed connection in a place where it is physically impossible due to one-way segments. A U turn, or two-way self-con, is essentially the same problem as an improperly-allowed turn restriction -- both are often set by people driving in ways they shouldn't, for example. It's still worth indicating U turns, since their arrows are not always visible, but it's still not as big a problem as true self-con, since there will be instances when it is properly allowed.

IIRC -- I can't check right now -- the color highlights script shows only true self-con as "self connectivity" (purple), and shows two-way self-con as "U turns" separately (teal).

I'm running 1.6.7 and for some reason I'm not getting any of the AM level functions, despite being a CM.

What is the best way to suggest updates/changes to the code?

I looked at the script and saw a couple of items that could easily be changed to speed things up a bit. I profiled them and the speed-up isn't very large, but the changes are minimal.

Send me a PM with the details, and I'd be happy to consider them for a future version. :)
