If you believe a segment lock level is incorrect,
PLEASE talk to your group leader before making any changes.
Cameras
New red light cameras are rare. (There are none currently in the MapRaid area.)
If you find one, please notify your group leader.

Requesting Help

SER editors use these formats or shorthand to ask for help:

Change in lock level - Unlock/Lock (Down-lock/Up-lock). Only one request is needed to go through an unlock, edit, and re-lock of an item. (This is explained more below.)
   Current Level -> Desired Level, City, State  Planned Edits (Purpose)   Permalink (PL)
   REAL LIFE EXAMPLE NEEDED
PUR approval or rejection:
           Desired Lock Level + ,  City, State   PUR   Action Requested   Permalink (PL)
    REAL LIFE EXAMPLE NEEDED
Editor Responses to requests. An editor can be signal what he's done by attaching the appropriate emoticon to the Discord post:
    NEED TABLE of EMOTICONS with MEANINGS

Open Elements/Issues for Wiki ?

  • Import of team members into wiki table? Who and When?

CLARIFY and/or FURTHER DEFINE GUIDANCE:

  • Area places mapping geometry?
  • Which are building footprint (approximate) : Shopping mall, ..................?
  • Which are to fence and/or parcel boundaries : Gas stations, Campuses (School, Universities, Hospitals..............)?
  • Include Primary / Alternate City Guidance?
  • Multiple Entry Points for SER? - national guidance has been published; no mention in SER wiki

    Other Issues?

NEW GUIDANCE (not in SER wiki)

  • ADD? For 3rd party imports : Descriptions. Leave as is or trim? If trimming, how? (This was asked in KS/MO MR raid.)

NEW CAPABILITY for MR

  • ADD? Form Filler script option, "ex-MR issue?", where editors record issues they've identified which are outside the mapraid scope? (The resulting gsheet can be shared with SER editors after MR ends for fixing.)


  Go beyond (WMEPH) GREEN !
      • Ensure that all readily available information for a place is entered on the map!

Remove the "DRAFT" notice when the page is ready to be released to the MapRaiders.




Summary of Changes: Adjusted instructions to reflect natural order of data fields as well as waze vocabulary utilized in WME; modified grammar and style.


EXISTING:

The primary goal of the Virginia 2025 is to vastly improve a user's drive by having the destination's ADDRESS properly located and searchable within the app.

. . .

The desire is to get the road segments (base map and urban/suburban) to have proper road names, proper city name(s), direction(s) of travel, turn restrictions, house numbers, and speed limits. This effort improves the connectivity of the Waze map while making the destination addresses work properly. Note when a house number doesn't provide proper routing then use a residential place point (RPP), but only if absolutely necessary.

. . .

Mapping will never achieve perfection, since there is always some change going on throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. Construction of new homes and their roads, improving major highways with diverging diamond interchanges, and even adding Express Lanes or HOV Lanes are fairly common occurances.

PROPOSED:

The primary goal of Virginia 2025 (VA2025) is to vastly improve a user's drive experience by ensuring that each valid ADDRESS is properly located and searchable within the app. (This effort also improves the connectivity of the Waze map.)

. . .

The objective is to ensure that each road segment is appropriately identified with a street name and city name(s), road type (functional class), direction(s) of travel, turn restrictions, speed limits, and house numbers. Note: when a house number doesn't provide proper routing, add a residential place point (RPP), but only if absolutely necessary.

. . .

Mapping will never achieve perfection; on-going growth is the norm throughout much of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Construction of new homes and their roads as well as major highway improvements (including diverging diamond interchanges) and even adding Express and HOV Lanes are fairly common occurrences.
