I guess I'd be inclined to map it as a walking trail. It seems (though it remains essentially unstated) that this is why waze will route to the end of a walking trail when the address is associated with the trail.


I changed it to a Walking Trail. I have been under the assumption that ONLY Street could House Numbers.

Thanks.

Well I wish we could get some further guidance on what the developers intend for us to use walking trails for.

Is it possible to get a report when roads are connected to driveable roads with a specific streetname?

In this case the following:
busbaan
spoorlijn
tram
metro

Those should never be connected to driveable segments.

Could that either be country-specific or provide the option to enable only certain street names? We have a "Metro Parkway" that is the official name and is a major highway.

According to wiki:
When a road is under long-term construction, but is not closed, add "(Construction Zone)"

So I'm not sure if Validator should suppress issues at the "not closed" road :?

A report for obsolete CONST ZN markers will be added.

Oh, of course, I wouldn't wanna suppress other issues there. I think having "Construction Zone" as a note, though, could alert editors to construction projects which may have been completed.

At the moment all the filters run afterwards the scan. Validator scans and collects all of the issues. Then you click "Show report" and Validator applies the filters and shows the report.

This street match option you suggested would be applied during the scan and once it changed you would need to rescan the area. So this option does not fit well with the existing filter options :(

Understood, thanks anyway! :D

But still we have plenty of options for 'Non-drivable connected to drivable' check:
1. We can exclude dead-ends up to 300 m long.
2. Or we can enable check #115 just for some countries by request.
3. Or we can report just railroads connected to drivable roads.


I would go for #1; but the summum would be a recursive dead-end-check ;-)

Railroads are ALWAYS to be reported if connected to something drivable. As there are a number of countries that have substituted railroads by walking trail (with a distinctive name like "spoorlijn" or "railroad") those should be treated equivalent to RR.

Re: ramp as non-highway connector

Simply put, there is not Road Type for connectors below the class of highways (freeways, MH, mH).

Maybe this discussion should be split from this thread again, but I disagree with this statement. The guidance in the US, as noted above, is that ramps are to be used for grade separated connections. We could discuss changes, but "highway function" is term that we can endlessly debate. Again we should likely have that debate elsewhere.

If I understand dbraughlr's comment, he is not saying there is a problem with the current use of Ramps that the validator should prevent, but is proposing a change be made in the future. Therefore the Validator should allow ramps to connect between two Streets or Primary Streets as well as the Highway class types since they do exist in real life and do not cause routing problems.

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?

First, congratulations (or condolences, as appropriate :D) on the new AM status.

Exactly what steps are you taking to try to remove the Validator extension from Chrome?

I agree. I see two independent options to filter the report:
  1. Omit any roadway with name containing "closed".
  2. Omit any roadway with name not containing (at least) one of {"closed", "construction", "CONST"}.
(Neither, either, or both options may be selected.)

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.
