  1. Sunrise/sunset vs absolute times for restrictions

    Some roads have driving restrictions based on the local sunrise/sunset times, which are difficult to map even somewhat accurately as a series of consecutive restrictions with absolute start/end times.

    Being able to set a single year-round restriction using a "sunrise" or "sunset" option to set the start/end times, and leaving it up to the routing server to determine what the actual start/end times are for each restriction based on the current date and coordinates of the restricted segments, could therefore be useful.

    Hey,

    We have looked at this suggestion, and in order to make some decisions about it, would like to kindly ask you to provide us with more data about it.

    Please share some examples for when and where this restrictions apply? (use cases)

    And any country you know relevant for it.

    Thanks!

  2. Parking Lot Roads - Differentiate Aisles & Roads

    It would be nice to have a way of setting PLRs to be able to use speed data (versus a set speed) while having the same penalty settings (i.e., the road has no penalty between the two PLR settings). This would be useful in large parking lots area such as sporting venues and malls, where set speed is fine for aisles and minor roads but speed data would be useful for finding the fastest entrance/exit on it's higher volume roads. With the set PLR speed, you are almost always getting the shortest route of PLRs, even if that lot exit…

  3. Allow closure overlapping

    Hi,
    very often I am notified of an event that needs closure after it started, then I go to select the many segments that must be closed.
    When I want to add a proper closure on them, there are already dozen of closure made by drivers and I have to remove all of them one by one before adding mine. That's annoying because it is slow, and sometimes new closure are made by drivers while I am removing them :

    And overlapping closure are not a real problem because when it is done by waze app it happens often so…

  4. Allow editors to override default order in which area polygons are rendered.

    Often times we find that area places intersect on the map and do not render in a way that makes sense. As an example, under the current scheme, a large water body will be drawn behind a smaller park polygon where these two types of objects are drawn together. To combat this, editors are required to either draw complex coastlines twice, or break up water objects to create smaller polygons that will be drawn on top. We could improve the appearance of the map significantly if we had some control over which objects appear in front of others. This could…

  5. Setting "Repeat every year" on an existing restriction

    Now that we have the "Repeat every year" checkbox for restrictions, it'd be useful if we could tick this for existing restrictions to turn them into repeating ones, without the need to then also edit the start/end dates to avoid the "Start date can not be in the past" error.

    e.g. a segment has an existing restriction set for 5th September 2019 to 20th October 2019, and the restriction is one that ought to be set as recurring.

    The preferred workflow would be for the editor to simply tick the "Repeat every year" checkbox and save, without any other changes…

  6. Address localization

    lease allow localization of address field just as it is done in search results, so it would be possible to have "%{street} %{housenumber}" instead of "%{housenumber} %{street}" for some languages.
