Road types

4 bytes removed, 5 years ago
*When Waze users travel on a non-vehicle route such as a bicyclist or mass-transit rider, marking these routes can be useful to explain the GPS traces that result.
*If a base map scan has non-drivable routes on it, it is important to mark these to prevent traffic routing onto them.
*Non-drivable routes should '''not have any type of junction with a drivable road'''. Because of the way the routing engine works, Waze '''will''' route users to drive on these "Non-drivable" road types. When crossing a drivable road, the non-drivable road should be bridged across without a junction between them and set at a different levelElevation.

"Emergency and Authorized Vehicles Only" and DOT Service Roads are to be treated as Non-drivable roads as well. You primarily see these between interstate roads and on the turnpike. If mapped, they should not be connected to any drivable road, the road type should be set as Private Road and locked at the highest level rank of the editor.

Train and Light Rail tracks currently do not appear in Waze client, but may in a future release. For that reason some editors may map at least the portion of the railroad that cross drivable roads. However, DO NOT create a junction between the drivable road and the railroad. The Waze routing engine will properly calculate the average time through a segment regardless if the railroad creates a junction on that segment or not. By not creating a junction, there is less chance for turn restrictions to be set incorrectly and potentially cause automated errors in the system.
Currently all Railroad segments should be set to level Elevation -5. This also helps ensure the routing engine does not try to connect or route drivers from roads onto railroads non-roads by mistake. It acts to prevent false system reporting that think the roads should be connected.
