I did: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.ph ... 01#p815801

I borrowed and modified Dave's code to my liking – of course anyone is free to do whatever they like.

On the default scheme, the railroads are largely the same as Dave's, except I like to have the labels on them; my runways are much thicker and I kept the yellow color just for fun (there aren't that many runways out there and they don't usually conflict with roads). I used the default scheme's code in Randy Mac (my custom theme) as well.

On the night scheme, the railroads are still largely the same, albeit with labels, and much darker to match with the scheme in general. I made them grey where most roads are blue, to allow easy differentiation between roads and railroads. Runways are thick like in the default mod but grey for nighttime.

I also added light toothpaste-green city polygons to the default scheme.

Thanks! Would you mind making a mockup with default? I don't have a lot of computer time this week.

There is no reason to assume the Notes layer won't also be hideable.

I agree URs are much better than railroads for this task.

We forwarded to HQ who are taking it into consideration.

This is exactly what I was thinking. Now could you do it on the default theme? :D

Like I said, use as notes is not the reason for "delay". A big change to the client map display is upcoming, but when it happens, it's going to happen all at once.

Railroads are already displayed in the Live Map, as are Runway/Taxiways.

Except that users have been adding actual railroads for months now...

Depends on your definition of "soon". No, it's not gonna be this month, but I wouldn't stretch it as far as "Waze soon" either. I would expect it within a few months, which is certainly soon enough to delete railroad-notes you might find, especially in areas that might not be as routinely edited.

Not exactly. Railroad segments used as editor notes should be deleted. Railroad segments should be added for actual railroads.

Regarding 3): it shouldn't be a problem for the merger process. The client should snap you to roads, but merger uses the actual GPS data rather than where the client thought you were, and should therefore be able to tell where you are based on your actual path.

I think that's pretty decent. In general a bit detailed for the majority of editors, but I think a fine start to discuss. Should be posted in the wiki discussion forum because it will become part of the wiki.

He also posted it in the US champs forum railroad thread. I assume the idea is to get pre-approval by champs before submitting it to the big wiki forum.

There is some discussion over there.
