Continuity in Road Types

It is very important to have continuity when interpreting Functional Classification (FC) Maps and picking Road Types. Part of the criteria for making FC maps is continuity, but this does not always translate into waze flawlessly. It is also important to have continuity when picking road types in general. Thats what this section is all about.

Here is an example of how the FC map does not have continuity. If we translate this directly into waze using Road Types USA's guidelines it looks like this. This means, if traveling on one of the two  Minor Highway  the routing server could possibly not consider this this when trying to get to the  Freeway . So we have to make these sections of  Minor Highway  consistent.


Here is an example of how the FC map does not have continuity.
If we translate this directly into waze using Road Types USA's guidelines it looks like this.
So we have to make these sections of Minor Highway consistent.
