Re: [Script] WME Validator 0.6.2 (BETA) / 07.02.2014

Dear Berestovskyy,

I have some small issue on the report of the area on the permalink.

At the end of the report says:
Summary
WME Validator has checked 635 segments and reported 2 errors (3‰) and 8 warnings (13‰).

3% of 635 errors is not 2 errors, and
13% of 635 errors is not 8 errors.

Percentage is being calculated with a big error (Reported percentage is 10 times bigger than real)

As you can see Validator has aloud me to reduce significantly the errors of the area (over 200 when started fixing it, I didn´t check percentage before starting).

I hope you can fix this small issue, it is not a bug, is just a small issue and has nothing to do with the proper functionality of the error detection.

Best regards form Concepción, Chile,

Here is another idea to be discussed (or not :) ): checking average speed on a segment (don't know if you can get it like the Color Highlights script do) and highlight those with excessive speed regarding the road.

I have URs that appears with weird detours being proposed and the explanation seems to be one or several segments with illogical speeds registered. The cause of this is segments that have been re-used and modified, sometimes generating a false average speed.

Like 150 km/h on a ramp (with the Freeway attached to it being limited to 90), and Waze tells the driver to exit the Freeway just to re-enter on it the next ramp (without any trafic jam or whatever on the Freeway).

Since you won't be able to know what the correct speed should be for each segment, you could do a general check and mark all the segments with, for example, a speed over 150 km/h. Or 130 km/h but excluding Freeways. Or whatever seems logical in your country regarding a type of road.

The type of warning is to be determined (orange or red since it affects the routing).

Guys, let me know if you are interested in the following features:

1. User interface internationalization - i.e. translation of buttons, checkboxes, tips etc. on your language. Would it be useful or English is OK?

2. Separating translations from the main script. The main script will be slimmer and faster, while you will be able maintain translations on your own. I suggest to extract the following features:
a) UI translations (optional, see 1)
b) translation of check titles, problem descriptions, howtos and links localization
c) enabling/disabling checks for the country
d) managing exceptions and check parameters

Let me know what you guys think before I start to implement the functionality.
I would also like to hear if the script startup time in v0.6.2 is still an issue for you.

Yes, I think localizations would be helpful, as it would widen the user circle (not every editor is fluent in English). The translations can probably be handled by string lists, which could be fed to you by local persons or groups in each country. In particular, I like the idea of having localized links to wiki/howto references.

About 2c): I suggest to have a default enabled/disabled check list for each country, where each user can then individually edit his list. A reset-to-default functionality should allow fixing screwed-up configurations. ;)

I don't quite understand what 2d) means.

I was thinking about kind of "language pack", so local communities could maintain the pack on their own (i.e. add/correct translations, add/remove exceptions and enable/disable the checks).

Sorry, I would appreciate a permalink. I'm looking into the code and the situation you describe is impossible :?

You mean external script-data for validator that will regroup : rules, translation, etc; and one script for each country?
Agreed with that!

Done. Will be available in the next release.

This would be quite easy to do. But it is not something that we would want where roads are classified by function not speed.

Perhaps the branch to take here is to make an api for the Validator so that people can customize what validations they want. It should be easy to insert your function CustomValidations() into the array of functions that Validator calls for each segment. People could script and share all the "validations" they like.

what would be superb is if validator was able to suggest people to "downgrade" or "upgrade" a road type based in road classification rules and Highlight's script speed info :( .

I think you misunderstand the need for the error. It's not just to show hidden segments, it's because of known navigation errors when segments share end-nodes.
