This is a clickable interactive guide to determine what instruction, if any, will be given at the junction between any 2 segments.
+
#REDIRECT [[Waze etiquette]]
 
 
There will eventually be encyclopedia style illustrations for the various configurations to visually describe the setup. This will formatted as a sequence flow through, to cover (hopefully) all variations.
 
 
 
== Introduction ==
 
Understanding how and which instructions are provided requires first understanding a few concepts.
 
* This page is discussing the instruction which will be provided by the Waze server (or not provided) when travelling from one segment, through a [[Glossary#Junction_or_Junction_Point|junction]], and onto a second segment.
 
* How [[User:PesachZ/algorithm#Best Continuation|''Best Continuations'']] work. Any time the destination segment is the ''Best Continuation'' there will not be an instruction provided.
 
 
 
While the illustrations displayed by each question may not represent every possible variation, they do represent the difference between the two options in that question. Please choose the most appropriate answer.
 
 
 
== Definitions ==
 
* The segment you are on before going through the junction, in other words the segment you are coming from will be referred to as '''''the origin''''', and corresponds to [[User:PesachZ/algorithm#Definitions|''s-in'']] in the [[User:PesachZ/algorithm#The_algorithm_.2F_list_of_conditions|the algorithm text provided by Waze staff]].
 
* The segment you will be on after the junction, in other words the segment you are going to will be referred to as '''''the destination''''', and corresponds to [[User:PesachZ/algorithm#Definitions|''s-out'']] in the [[User:PesachZ/algorithm#The_algorithm_.2F_list_of_conditions|the algorithm text provided by Waze staff]].
 
* Any segments other ''the destination'' which leave the junction at an angle less than 44° will be referred to as '''''other branches''''', and corresponds to [[User:PesachZ/algorithm#Definitions|''s-N'', or ''s-1,2,3,4...'']] in the [[User:PesachZ/algorithm#The_algorithm_.2F_list_o,f_conditions|the algorithm text provided by Waze staff]].
 
* When the beginning portion two segments are directly on top of each other, meaning they both leave the junction at the exact same angle as each other, they will be referred to as an '''''overlapping segment'''''.
 
* Any road typed in Waze as a Freeway, Major Highway, or Minor Highway, will be referred to in this page as a '''[[Road_types/USA#Highways|highway]]'''.
 
 
 
 
 
== Directions ==
 
To use this interactive flowchart;
 
:* Start with the [[#01|first question]] in [[#The_interactive_algorithm|The Interactive Algorithm]].
 
:* Click on the appropriate answer which best matches your situation. A new question will jump to the top of the screen
 
:* Continue answering the questions until an [[#The_instructions|instruction]] is displayed at the top of the screen.
 
:* This is the instruction that the Waze server should give when transversing this junction between the two segments you described as ''the origin'' and ''the destination''.
 
 
 
 
 
== The interactive algorithm ==
 
{{anchor|01}}Other than ''the origin'' and ''the destination'', are there any other segments connected to this junction?

Turns with angles greater than 135° will follow the same instruction path as [[#03|44.5°-135°]], but the Waze routing server will penalize this turn, and avoid routing through it.

== The instructions ==
 
=== No Instruction ===
 
There will be '''No instruction''' given passing through this junction.
 
This can be caused by several factors including
 
* ''Best Continuation''
 
* The instruction would be Continue Straight (this doesn't yet exist in Waze)
 
[[File:Big_direction_forward.png]]
 
* Certain cases with an ''overlapping segment''
