Suggestions: If you can have only one active "report" then I would suggest a single icon to run the report and then clear the report. The two buttons which look like "Play" and "Trash" are ok, but a single button which switches makes more sense. Also, I was a bit wary about clicking the Trash icon because the possibility of it meaning "delete something from the Waze map" was present in my mind. The icon currently matches the Waze delete icon, so at least that should change.

Example where reverse connection does not appear to be detected: https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=6&lat ... s=33330449. All three 2-way segments have an allowed connection reverse into the 1-way segment, but WMEV doesn't catch it.

Text bubble reads "Click 'Report' to review map issues" but there is no button named "Report" that I can see. There is a "Show report" button though.

Nice tool!

I assume this takes account of countries where people drive on the left (and roundabouts are clockwise). Can you add Ireland to the list of countries like this? All our roundabouts are being reported as being backwards :)

Re: [Script] WME Validator \ CONST ZN

Postby dbraughlr » Thu Jan 30, 2014 8:24 am

I request additional options:
  • Exclude any segment with name containing "CONST ZN".
  • Flag any segments with name containing "CONST ZN".

Not working need to reinstall validator?

Postby cactusmonkey1966 » Sun Feb 23, 2014 1:32 am

Hi!
I'm a new area manager, and installed this WME Validator and it shows installed on my Chrome. However, since we've been having problems with saving map edits I made a mistake. I erased some js script extensions on my computer control panel, and now Validator isn't working at all. My editing screen keeps saying zoom out to start WME Validator. And then it doesn't work well or at all. A few times today it let me start the play button and create a report, but now nothing... :oops:

I'm thinking I need to delete WME Validator and reinstall it. But my Chrome doesn't seem to give me that option. Any insight into getting this installed properly now that I messed up and played around without knowing what I'm doing?

New thoughts

Postby krikketdoug » Fri Jun 06, 2014 1:19 am

I know I'm just a jr editor, and have found this to be a porwerful tool. Im very glad for my informal mentor for pointing me this way. :)

And please forgive me in advance if I go into too much detail. I tend to overexplain, but am trying to keep things to a minimum. I've already edited out a few bits.

I was only planning on reading part of the thread and commenting, but was learning too much to stop reading every message, even though due to work constraints it took me a couple of days. (Okay, I took some time off to read a book and watch some TV, but you get the idea...)

A few of checks that I'd like to propose be added:

1> Walking trails and other non-drivable road types that have a elevation of something other than -5 be flagged. By running the script near my home, I found a few examples of this, so I have a feeling it's not that uncommon of an error.

2> Now that the US is moving to a Functional Classification system, I've found an odd segment here and there that don't match the new FC system. Each side of the segment has a different road type but the same street name. Usually it's a short segment between a parking lot and a cross street, but I'm wondering how many more are out there. From what I understand, the changing of the road type can cause routing problems. So I propose we check against that as well.

3> Another check that would probably have to be handled on the country level now that Landmarks has transisitioned to Places is a check on the new Places markers versus what the rules say they should be. For example, for a while a religious site was permitted while a simple church was not. On the other hand many editors concluded that any site that had hundreds of worshippers visiting it every day or was over a hundred years old (Hey! I'm in America! Here that is a long time!) or... You get the idea. In each country there should be (eventually) a list of approved typed of markers in the Wiki that could be used to compare what is used. [edited to remove additional unnecessary examples]

Much simpler under the new rules, if I understand everything correctly. Just mark them all places(points) instead of places(areas). [edited to remove a reference to the unnecessary examples]

Low angle turn

Postby robindlc » Sun Feb 23, 2014 8:27 pm

Do you think will be worthily to add a check for "impossible" turns with low angles... (lets say less than 30 grades)? A kind of warning, "Turn with too low angle, pls check"

In this image, the turn marked should be not allowed

first letter lowercase

Postby dbraughlr » Sun Feb 23, 2014 8:16 pm

When a USA street name starts with a compass indicator [ENSW], the next word should start with a capital letter. "W laRue St" should be flagged with error #94.
