When to divide and un-divide roads
Before considering whether or not roads should be divided or un-divided, the editor must fully understand the conditions and considerations that go into the decision. These can be found here. The fundamental difference between dividing roads in the Southeast and the USA is that all conditions/requirements must be satisfied in the Southeast before dividing or un-dividing the road. The table below summarizes:
|Condition/Requirement||Southeast Best Map Editing Practices1,2||Best Map Editing Practices|
|A. It is an Interstate Highway (USA) or other Limited Access Highway using the "Freeway" road type.|
|B. GPS tracks show a clearly definable and continuous gap (blank area) between the colour-by-azimuth arrows at the 100m/500ft zoom level.|
|C. Multiple houses or businesses with no off-street parking are located directly on the street but are not accessible from the opposite direction of travel due to lengthy median, obstruction, or traffic control signage,|
|D. U-turns are required to properly make turns from public drivable road types that are blocked by a median|
1. Southeast Best Map Editing Practices require all of the conditions/requirements B through D to exist.
2. Before dividing a road in the Southeast, consult with a State Manager or the Regional Coordinator.
