I think it should not report any unless one of the junction angles is 0. I see the error when the junction angles are 90 degrees or more.

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.

Re: parallel paths to the same endpoints

Let's consider first a one-way terminal loop.

What is the known navigation error in this situation?
How do you correct it?

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.

Please specify that you checked the option "Exclude non-editable segments".

Re: junctions with drivable and non-drivable

Postby dbraughlr » Mon Feb 17, 2014 10:10 pm

A Railroad segment must not be at a junction with another type.

A Runway/taxiway segment must not be at a junction with another type.

There must not be a junction with any drivable type and any non-drivable type.

A ramp must be connected at both ends and the junction at one end must have a freeway/highway/ramp segment.

I think that junctions between walking path, boardwalk, and stairway are fine.

Yes, those should fail validation. Then someone would have a good reason to change them if the wiki is not reason enough.

levin wrote:we also have many old streets with spaces instead of names

If this is the only reason, then this is a good reason to have a separate validation that the name must contain something more than whitespace and punctuation. Thus two letters are valid, two spaces are not.

Re: WME Toolbox

It sounds like a fix to Toolbox would be the best. Toolbox should allow the entry of some selection criteria and along with suitably limiting criteria, a scan over a wider area.
