MapRaid! India latest updates

On this page you will find the latest guidelines for the Raid to follow. If there is confusing information in other parts of the local wiki, the guidelines stated here are leading.


Road types

As for road types, please use the table in the quickstart page with the map as follows:

  • Freeway: National Highways that are referenced in the map
  • Major Highway (MH): National Highways that aren’t seen in the map
  • Minor Highway (mH): All State Highways and Arterial Roads within Indian Metro Cities

Road naming convention

  • National Highways: to be named as NH-XX, where XX is Highway Number
  • State Highways: to be named as SH-XX, where XX is Highway Number.

Gas stations

the latest updated info can be found on the Places page at Gas Stations.

Smudged cities / saving errors

If the editor displays the error message "The highlighted road is too far from the city it was added to", you probably encountered a "smudged city". The problem is that one or more of the segments that are connected to your edited segments have an incorrect city name. Important to notice, the incorrect name can also be in one of the alternate names.

We have seen many strange things dealing with this problem. Among others is that segments don't have a primary name, but do have alternate names. Sometimes, the alternate name are hidden, and only show after some specific ways of editing. It often seem to happen with unconfirmed roads (roads without a name set, red outlined), but it is not restricted to those.
