Mapping rural diveways

  • If an address/location cannot be reasonably guided to without a private drive, it can be added.
  • Single house at the end of a 1mi (1609m) private drive, and that's the only house, it probably isn't needed.
  • If it's 5 houses at the end of a single shared 1/4mi (402m) long private drive, it probably is needed.
  • If it's a house at the end of a 500m (1640 ft) long private drive which is right up against another street from which you cannot access the address (stop point will be on the segment closest), then a private drive is probably needed. Per AlanOfTheBerg guidelines
