@panda: I've already drafted GTS (Grand Tour of Switzerland) and tried to find out more info about routes from https://www.ferienstrassen.info/. In general, all routes should be signed and I think that most are really signed well, minimum the routes I travel on occasion. There are some routes quite close to my home and they are all with brown signs. There seem to be some exceptions with non-brown signs. I travel the "Route of indulgence" almost daily and this route is NOT signed AFAIK.


I cannot check GSV because it's not available in Germany. That the closest route to my home is not signed makes me struggling. Should I really trust the source and add all routes?

In addition, some routes have short branches (1..2km) to villages next to the main route. Should I also add them?

Don't know what to say...I would maybe add the most known routes, which have already some tradition, first? For Germany it would be Alpenstrasse, Alleenstraße, Romantische Straße, Glasstraße. I would also add branches, and name them after the main location where the branch goes.

Ouch, yeah. That point really has no business being there at all.

BTW, for you Oscar, I happened to notice that you submitted a list update and labeled it as including AL routes.  Saw that you had included some comments including a few point requests:

- I included the AL 13 point but had to label it "CR24_Wal" as I also have a County Rd 24 point in the Florence area.
- I also included the CR728 point on the AL 73 list.
- Boll Weevil Circle around Enterprise is indeed AL 192, but AL 192 is unsigned so for that reason is not included.

Thanks! I had meant to make the point requests separately on this forum, but this speeds up the process.

One point label suggestion: the south end of AL 255 is labeled RidRd, for the continuation road. But that doesn't pin down where on Rideout Road the state highway ends, especially since at that point there is no indication of a name change. What is at that point is an entrance sign for the Redstone Arsenal Army base, followed by other signs confirming that you're entering U.S. Government property. Would RedArs be a more informative point label?

I think the I-80 point for PA RivRd (River Road, Delaware Gap NRA) should be removed.  It was lined up with the I-80 "310" label(it will not be since I just moved it), but I would not consider River Rd itself as the main focal point of the interchange.

I prefer writing it out.

A couple suggestions for AL 281:
- Possibly change "BunLoop" to "CheSP" or "CheStaPk" (Cheaha State Park)? Precedent elsewhere is to use state/national parks as waypoints even if the entrance road has a name (and the name here certainly isn't signed in the field).

Agreed.  I'll change it to "CheStaPark" this evening (standard is to spell out the word if it has 4 letters...i.e. Park).

"SP" is a widely-used abbreviation for "State Park".

- The CR 131 intersection is signed "TO US 431" and, from my drive on it in March, CR 131 is signed as "TO US 431" and "TO AL 281". Possibly change this point to US431 or ToUS431 (with a similar change on US 431)?

Here, the precedent is to use the route number or road name of the connector if one exists.  So in this case, since the connecting road is CR 131 (and was signed as such at one point), I'm leaving it as CR131.

Deutsche Alpenstrasse would be a good candidate to have here. It's signed all the way with brown signs and it's pretty well known. It also goes over some roads that are not clinchable now so it will be nice to have.
