WME Road Types
The current classification of roads on the WME follows the road types in the USA (Freeway, Major and Minor Highways and other road types).
In Europe, but I think also in other parts of the world, the classification of roads is very different. This creates problems with editing roads, as it is difficult to adapt the WME type to the real situation.
It is necessary to revise the road classification of the WME according to the real classification of each country so that each country can edit the map in a correct and more real way.
Thanks for your feedback. At this time, this doesn't fit on our roadmap, but we'll keep it in mind for future product planning.
Localisation allows just that, doesn't it?

Not all the road type classifications are for US / North America - there are ones that we are told not to use in the US.
Maybe a better approach would be to have each country have the ability to choose which classifications are used / available to editors in in WME.
Can you describe the problems you encounter?
Why is it difficult to adapt the WME type to the real situation?
I understand each national/regional community of editors must decide how to classify the roads, and how to map the local road types to WME road types.
The classification of roads is usually not "real": it is an arbitrary classification made by some organisation/authority, and it is subject to change.
In my opinion the best solution would be to keep only the Freeways, narrow, parking lots and private roads. For the rest, it would be necessary to have a single typology differentiated by the number of lanes, their width and the speed limit.
