House Numbers on non-drive-able Street.

Postby GizmoGuy411 » Sat Feb 22, 2014 5:14 pm

Opinions please:

Would anyone edit this any differently?
Note that street DOES have house numbers, and yet is NOT drive-able.
(I may also post this in the WME Validator forum.)

EDIT:
I have changed the segment to a Walking Trail, as CBENSON suggested in the WME Validator thread. I had been under the assumption that ONLY Streets could have House Numbers.

In some countries, there are named walkways which the house address is actually named after which have the house numbers, but you have to park and then walk.

Thanks Alan.

I did finally find the following thread where CBenson mentioned some links from Petervdveen that showed examples of this I believe.
https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.ph ... 30#p677393

You know.. sometimes I hate the forums for how much time it takes to find things. Even the Google "Site Search" failed me this time.

Can I ask you why you didn't connect the road to the road network?

We do have a lot of this 'non-drive able' roads over here indeed ;-)
If you look for example at this map: http://goo.gl/maps/Nt7H4
you can clearly see all the small lines, those are non-drive able roads, but they do have a lot of houses and addresses on it :-)

I was still following our Wiki guidelines, that state:

Road Types (USA) wrote:Non-drivable routes should not have any type of junction with a drivable road. Because of the way the routing engine works, Waze will route users to drive on these "Non-Driveable" road types. When crossing a drivable road, the non-drivable road should be bridged across without a junction between them and set at a different level.


After my initial post, I changed it to a Walking Trail on CBenson's suggestion, as I was not aware that house numbers could exist on anything other than a Street type.

Okey, I think this should be reconsidered.
Now the route will never reach the destination.

But you can't drive to the destination. Shouldn't you be closing waze when you park the car anyway?

If destinations truly are on named walking-only streets, then I think they s/could be attached and have the addresses set there. This would be an exception to the "never connect" rule we currently use.

Why can't they remain unattached and have the addresses set there? Why the exception to the "never connect" rule?

There's still a significant penalty to Walking Trail which would prevent (in most cases) Waze routing through such segments, but if it is a destination point (think private installation), why can't it be connected? Depending on how much walking there is, using the Waze map while finishing the Walk to the destination could be useful.
