The client should be fixed to the segment, otherwise all the speed data goes to the parallel segment.


Indeed, they need to be snappable and visible, and if possible, driving points gained on railroads should be discarded. And they should be ignored by the routing server, so they should be drivable, but not routable.

We plan to add railroads to the client display.

You are already planning that for four years. What has been changed lately?
Moreover, some of you use railroads road type as a way to add comments in the editor. As we plan to add road types to the map soon - please try to remove these comments and avoid adding more of them so they won't go live :)
Better communication tools are also planned for the editor.

Those communication segments aren't for nothing. First give us some communication tools before pushing this trough!!
Why should it be pushed anyway? We didn't have it for four years. We can wait till we have a communication tool. Besides, we have created a work-a-round that works brilliant without any drawback.
Comment: there were some issues that made the routing use railroads and the navigation snap to railroad segments. These issue should be fixed.

Sticking to railroad segments is not a problem it's a requirement for using the railroad road-type.
The client should be fixed to the segment, otherwise all the speed data goes to the parallel segment.

Please make it work exactly like the walking trail and ped. boardwalk!!!!

Another mess again, nothing will be done with this to prevent segment speeds of paralel roads. Useless.

I really hope Waze is able to track down/ prevent those Wazers who paved along the railroads. In Malaysia, there are some Wazers who abuse the paving feature and we have to frequently remove them.

Will there be any code to prevent users gaining miles on railroads and/or paving roads over them?

Thanks for releasing that, Shirli...

It's hard to argue common practice when the reason for the change is still classified. Now that this little background info is public, it's much easier to invoke changes :mrgreen:

This discussion doesn't look too good here in the public forums, especially only a few days after the champs-meeting at waze-HQ...!
