Flag/Highlight/compile a list of all parking lot landmarks (Places). Since many new editors go on a parking lot landmark adding spree not knowing about our guidelines for adding parking lots to the map, it would be nice to see an entire list of all of them in the area to validate valid or unnecessary parking lots.


Check out WME Data Store for an exportable Place list in the short term: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.ph ... 69#p911491

I'll likely be working with doctorkb and the Toolbox team to bring something similar to "Select Segments" to Toolbox "soon", but for Places.

Re: City Smudges

I am currently running a test in https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=251&t=81200 to track when the city layer gets corrected without posting the entries in the city smudge form. It may turn out they will not get updated ever without using the form.


The "no state" smudge would be an easy check because Validator would only need to look for a stateID of 1. Not all smudges are due to the no state issue though. I corrected "F, Michigan" a few weeks ago; and the combination of "Canton, MI", "Canton Township, MI", "Canton Township (no state)", and "Canton Twp, MI" was a fun exercise too.

In short, true editor-created smudges can always be removed without using the form (if you're impatient or it only affects a small number of segments). Changes to Waze-provided city polygons require you to use the form though. While mass editing is obviously discouraged as noted in the wiki, you can make a smudge or any legitimate editor-created city disappear by changing the city name in WME or making it No City, and a regular tile update takes care of it. You could mark all segments and objects associated with a Waze-provided city as "No City" or something else, and it would never update the city unless you use the smudged city form.

I've been doing some detailed research with some examples in Michigan after GizmoGuy411 had me look at an issue remaining after a name change using the city smudge form. The "name" changed, but the "English name" did not, which created an issue where--from a WME display standpoint--there are two neighboring "Addison, Michigan" options that are completely identical. The only way to tell the difference is using Colour Highlights or looking at the JSON response from the web request. Right now, my thoughts are still fairly haphazard and stream of consciousness, but I was eventually hoping to post soon with that and a few other smudge-related items.

Kent, you're actually the person that I eventually wanted to touch base with because it looks like there was a wiki update from mid-February that listed out the options under "Need assistance from the Waze team" with no guidance on what each option would do based on people's experience with using the form. I know that there is a dead thread in the Wiki Updates forum discussing smudges to some extent, but perhaps we can create a page update thread specifically for the smudge city and continue discussion there, or you could forgive me for resurrecting the old one? The wiki really needs to provide more insight into name versus english name, explain how Waze-provided cities have english names while editor-created ones do not, and a few other things.

As mentioned earlier in this thread and discussed in a split one, I thought that we were going to let the elevation issue sleep ;)

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.

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!

I currently get an indicator that a median u-turn segment is too short when it is actually a one way cross street that intersects with a split road. No direct left turn is enabled from the split road onto the cross street, so it's not technically a u-turn segment. Would it be possible to disable this when the street name of the "u-turn" segment is different from the intersecting road (and not "no street" or "u-turn" as well), when there are more than three segments intersecting at a junction, or some better solution? On tapatalk, so no permalink right now unfortunately.

I don't get this. Why would you ever traverse the lower segment just to turn around? Why not have a single segment with the restriction? It doesn't go anywhere else, so regardless of whether it is one or two segments, the routing effect is identical. Or else I'm not getting it...

If Waze thinks the destination is closer to the segment with restrictions than any other segment, it will override the segment restrictions. This is just like any turn restriction.

The only thing this segment restriction does is affect travel along the whole segment, so having two parts is unnecessary.

There are two buildings on the inside of the gate that are accessible at all times from inside the park (it's a very large park with roads throughout that doesn't close completely at night - just the smaller gates close at night). Access to these buildings shouldn't be restricted, only passage *through* the gate should be restricted.

I agree that restricting one single segment would have the same effect on routing because the restriction just imposes a routing penalty and there's no other way to the part of this road that remains accessible, however it feels wrong to mark a bit of road as time-restricted when it isn't.

I've found what I consider to a bug: unneeded node reported between two segments where one of the segments has time-based restrictions and the other doesn't.

If you look here, there's a pair of segments, and Validator considers the node between them to be unneeded, however the top segment has time-based restrictions (there's a gate there that's closed at night) but the lower segment has no such restriction.

If you think this is a real bug, can you disable reporting of unneeded nodes in cases where one segment has time-based restrictions and the other doesn't? I expect this is a change that should be common to all countries, not just Ireland.

thanks!

Thanks for all the work so far! Something I've noticed in one of the country-specific checks you made for Ireland: this segment here reports "Incorrect Major Highway name" because of the fada (accent) in its name. The correct name is "N62 Cúchulainn", but if that's changed to "N62 Cuchulainn" (removing the accent on the first 'u') then Validator doesn't think it's incorrect any more.

Irish placenames use similar (but not all the same) characters as English placenames; as well as the usual [a-zA-Z] characters, fadas (accents) on vowels are also valid: [áéíóúÁÉÍÓÚ].

Ich would like to oppose this one. In Germany, we frequently KISS Ramps, if the two driveways are merely separated by road markings. Getting all those marked would lead to - well - challenges. ;)

I'd like to oppose this too; the motorway network in Ireland is fairly young, and two-way ramps are quite common on some interchanges.
