Updates to Highway Data / Re: MD: MD 639 signed
« Last post by mapmikey on Today at 09:28:30 am »
For my upcoming Minnesota trip I will try to verify whether 639 is posted at MD 51 and also if this means MD 61 is now posted too.

Updates to Highway Data / Re: VA: north end of VA 172 incorrect?

This is the truth although removals still appear in CTB.  Have to recognize that it is still posted in the field and go off of that.

So far, we look to be good on the ESRI tiles.  At least it shows we have 50/50 "credits" remaining for the current month, ending June 7.

If we were using enough Mapbox to hit their limit, I worry that we're probably hitting OSM's servers too much also.  I might need to look into having our own tile server again.  It was overkill a year ago but might be needed now.

If we went by CTB minutes we wouldn't have a lot of recent changes.

Two more trips between eastern PA, Hagerstown MD, and the FedroSplat so far this month. (I also updated my CA travels -- all of one trip -- after finally noticing that usaca was in preview.)

Clinched routes:
US11 in WV, PA345, PA465, PA724, PA772, PA999, MD26, MD140, MD144Bal, MD216

New segments of:
US11 in PA, US322 in PA, PA23, PA74, PA233, PA441, PA533 (entire concurrency with US11), PA641, PA696

The next update after this will cover two more such trips, plus anything new covered in PA on Memorial Day weekend.

Damn! I thought I was going to be able to pass you on the 'active systems' chart with my travels to Cleveland next week.  :P
Now I'll just be hoping to tread water on that mileage list.  ;D

A pity.  Mapbox was the only entity that combined OSM data with a satellite image.  Worked pretty well for list development.

ESRI World Imagery at least has the satellite imagery. I wonder if Mapbox's satellite imagery is what drove our usage over the limits -- and I hope there won't be a similar issue with ESRI.

I was able to "reset" the Mapbox token to stop current access.  Thinking about it some, we might be able to make Mapbox available in the WPT editor only and have a very good chance of staying under the free usage limits.  I am sure it's HB and Mapview that really rack up the tile loads.  In any case, it's offline until at least June 7 when the current billing period ends and the next month's free usage kicks in.

Updates to Highway Data / Re: MA: Storrow Drive and Soldiers Field Road
« Last post by froggie on Yesterday at 09:15:54 pm »
I get down to Boston a fair bit and on the eastern leg between the Zakim Bridge and the Beacon St exit (we usually stay at Copley when we're in Boston).  Although signs from the Longfellow and Charles River Dam bridges call it Storrow Drive, MassDOT shapefiles officially have Storrow Drive ending where MA 28 joins/departs.  There is also a north/eastbound intersection at Pinckney St (between Beacon St and the Longfellow Bridge) that signs it as David Mugar Way.

Given that this section is already covered by the MA 28 and MA 3 lists, plus the disparities listed above, my preference would be to end a Storrow Dr list at the MA 28/Beacon St exit.


Regarding US 3/MA 3, a couple things worth pointing out.  First, MassDOT has the switchover at the same location the Highway Browser currently has it at:  at Mass Ave.  Second, signage coming over the Harvard Bridge on Mass Ave shows MA 3 to the east and US 3 to the west.  I also don't recall any signs on the Longfellow Bridge or where it crosses Memorial (nor does GMSV show any), though in fairness I haven't been on Longfellow Bridge since the recent rehabilitation project was finished.  That said, given the vagaries of Boston (heck, Mass in general) signage plus the MassDOT data, I'd be inclined to keep the switchover point as-is.

Since we're discussing adding Storrow and Soldiers Field, perhaps a discussion on also adding the Leverett Circle Connector?  This is the set of "really long ramps" running from I-93 Exit 26 to "Storrow Drive", with a connection to/from the Tobin Bridge.  One could argue they're just "really long ramps" from 93 North, but they could also arguably be considered a separate roadway.  Physically it's a separate bridge entirely from the Zakim, and also allows drivers to get between Storrow and the Tobin without having to go on 93.

I think they need to be gone for good.  It looks like there's no option to say "serve as many free tiles as you can and then cut off the account if we exceed".  Instead, it just rolls over to billing.  We've incurred $5 in expenses just today and this is after I removed the option.  This has to be people who have previously loaded and selected these tiles.  It looks like I need to delete the account or ask for a volunteer to put their credit card on it.
