In all likelihood you are probably correct. However in my real life I work a lot with our legal team and I have seen some pretty amazing things slip by pretty far without someone confirming the long debated agreement that both parties intended to sign, actually got signed. :oops:

The Bing aerials are already licensed to Waze, so they are not a problem. We are presuming with good faith that the Streetview images are also being licensed to Waze, but as you said, until it is in the released editor, we might be wrong that the license agreements are all signed and complete. I agree to hold off putting the street view images in the wiki until the editor is released with the street view link from Waze.

Any photograph not explicitly given to public domain is the copyright of the photographer. Therefore only if Waze has permission to use images from street view can we use clips from it. So we need to ask Waze the question.

Images just pulled from the web are not public domain. I have many of my personal photos appearing in Google image searches from people copying my images from Flickr even though they are my copyright. I don't have enough money to sue them all. :evil:

I think we are pretty close. However I think we only have two kinds of restrictions:

1. An entire road (segment) can be restricted for through travel for one or both directions.
2. Specific turns (or continuations) from a road (segment) to another road (segment).

Then within these restrictions you can further specify it applies to all vehicles types or just a particular selection of vehicles. It is not as if the vehicle type is its own set of restrictions. They are a function of the first two above.

I think this makes more sense because that is how the user will set these restrictions.

I am fine with the list of examples. That helps people translate from the real world into WME.

I believe by your followup description I would be OK with that overall.

Sketch, that seems overly complicated. I was assuming we would focus on the editing controls themselves showing how each one works. I don't see a need to show how each one works under each combination. Maybe I am not following your proposal.

Alan, in the other thread I commented we would just have a disambiguation page, but looking at your trial page I actually like the deeper detail that you can cover in that page. I still propose that the details for all the different restriction types go to their respective pages (as I posted in viewtopic.php?f=276&t=56386&start=10)

I think we now have two threads on what I believe is ultimately the same topic so we may want to consider either merging or closing one of them.

I think "Turn Restrictions" would be better labelled, "Traffic Flow Restrictions"

I have a couple that the straight on is restricted and require a turn to avoid.

Lastly, I am working on replacing the jpeg files with GIFs because of the pretty look you can get with the rounded corners due to transparency of the corner pixels.


But the already uploaded files that you would like added to the scheduled restrictions page are the jpg files, right?

Draft looks good. It seems much more focused on turn restrictions than segment restrictions. That is there is no discussion about the A-B issues. But that can be covered in the reversible road discussions.
