Now, "map updates" includes
* updates that happen when the tile is updated (such as new places, creation or edits to segments, house number) - some trigger tile update while others do not
* updates that happen immediately (such changes to place names and other place details (?), creation or edits to closures)
* updates to search index -- once a HN or residential place address is saved, it might be uploaded with the tile it is on, but might not replace previous results in the address search index until some future date

I would like to generalize this page to cover all the ways in which the map gets updated, call it "map updates" or something similar, and keep this current page title as a redirect.

Place creation can go live immediately, I've created public and residential places, and been able to route to them within minutes. (The search index may not update as quick so it may be hard to find a new place by name, but a a new residential place which updates routing destination worked perfectly within minutes for me this week. A way to test public places is to do a category search from nearby and you'll see it listed and Routable right away.

Great feedback on the process. Can you point me to that procedure in writing so that I can learn more?

Hi Gadgetmts

Thank you for your contribution.
However, usually, we propose the contribution in a page hosted in our User: namespace. Then, after reviewing and approval of the community, we push the change on the Main namespace.

This is not a significant change and above that, this is somehow already validated as it comes from the Glossary, but keep this best practice in mind for your future contributions.

Great discussion. Knowledge is delicious.

I added the Map Tile definition from the Glossary page to the Map Tiles page: Theory of Operation section. It seems to fit that section, but... your thoughts?

Mostly, I wanted to capture the Tile Size on the Map Tiles page as that question comes up often.

We have a page called tile updates, with a discussion link to this topic.


I think the page needs to be moved to "Map updates" with redirect.

I just heard that HN changes are updated maybe once or twice a week, regardless of tile update schedule.

Changes to existing places go live immediately(once approved, if they are PURs)
RTCs go live immediately
City polygons are regenerated on some schedule we know very little about.

So it is not all about the tile update schedule anymore.

I changed Landmark to Place (Europe) and Turn Restrictions to Junction Arrows.

I was pretty sure all restrictions were the same, but I will confirm and specifically Segment Restrictions.

Confirmed on April 6 and forgot to update this thread.
