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

Would it be possible to extend the "Exclude non-editable segments" feature to "Exclude non-editable segments AND NODES"? At present the Validator reports problems with nodes that are outside the user's editable area - for example:

Suggestion: do not warn for "segment too short" on roundabouts' segments:

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


Now that I think it through, I believe that it was most likely a connectivity issue with the cross street segments that was causing the "u-turn" warning. The issues are reported in separate sections of the Validator report, but I clicked on the u-turn warning and likely fixed the glaring red connectivity issue at the same time. The u-turn problem was what stayed on the brain because it is more unique, whereas I've been fixing tons of connectivity problems recently.

Awesome tool!

Some checks have exceptions, for instance 'Lowercase street name (except country-specific words)'

Sure, the average speed info is available. The problem is what do we do with those segments :?

Many thanks for the update.

Regarding localization, I would like to make a suggestion based on some comments we got from other users. Do you think it could be possible to link the language of Validator to the one selected in the WME instead of the geographical area we are editing? By doing so, we could give control to the users about the language they prefer to use.

Then, I could be, as example, editing in Spain but with Language of WME selected as English. In that case, Spanish rules apply, as I'm editing Spain, but validator language would be English as it is the one selected in WME....

Pls consider :)

This could be a problem because as I understand localization, the rules applicable to roads in Spain cite the Spanish wiki and the corresponding validation messages are in Spanish.

You are right.... but...

Validation rules are per country and each country may decide whether apply to them or not...

Language translations refer to a wiki in the same language, but in most of cases in a generic way.

Ej... rule says that your segment are too big, or too short, or has abbreviations or doesn't have... (each country decides which one applies to them) but the wiki just explains how to edit the segment...

[*]What is the problem? Two drivable segments share the same two endpoints: forum reference
How to fix? Split the segment. You might also remove one of the segments if they are identical: instructions
Severity: warning
For countries: any country
[/*]


Also the very specific rules which applyes only to a country, are self explanatoires or refers to their own wiki

[*]#89 "Vers" in Ramp name
What is the problem? The Ramp name contains word "vers".
How to fix? Rename the Ramp.
Severity: warning
For countries: FR, GF, NC, RE
[/*]

[*]#54 "Węzel" in Ramp name
What is the problem? The Ramp name contains word "węzel".
How to fix? Rename the Ramp in accordance with the Polish guidelines: instructions
Severity: warning
For countries: PL
[/*]

[*]#61 Incorrect Freeway name
What is the problem? The Freeway has incorrect street name: wiki reference
How to fix? Rename the Freeway segment to a "Anum" or "Anum - Enum" or "Anum ri Dir1 / Dir2".
Severity: warning
For countries: BE, NL, LU
[/*]

[*]#80 Incorrect Freeway name
What is the problem? The Freeway has incorrect street name: wiki reference
How to fix? Rename the street to "Mxx" or "Mxx N/S/W/E" or change the road type.
Severity: warning
For countries: IE
[/*]


In a few words, one thing are the rules which applies and another the language to read the rules, which are self explanatory. References to wiki are generic just for extra support.

Suggestion: could it warn of

1) landmark too small to show on app? At least petrol (gas) station landmarks if not other types?

2) roundabouts too small to show on app?

Roundabouts may be too small, but they will give correct navigation instructions.

I do recommend that 8m is the minimum size a roundabout should be. Smaller roundabouts should still be mapped, but drawn as large as possible. They do not have to match the aerials.

I suggest disabling the "Less than 3 letters long street name" note for Israel. There are quite a few 2-letters words in Hebrew, and some of them are used for street names. So far I met 3 such names.
