In-progress Highway Systems & Work / Re: France Routes Départementales (frad)
« Last post by yakra on July 15, 2019, 05:52:23 pm »
I see fraidfd.csv lines like
fraidfd;FRA-IDF;D115;Yvelines;Hou;Houdan;fraidf.d011578hou;
This would result in .list lines like FRA-IDF D115YvelinesHou D61 IDF/CVL
Additionally, The DB field for Banner only allows 6 characters.
Was this needed for some kind of disambiguaton?

Are route numbers ever duplicated in different departments in the same region? If not...
• Department names could be moved to the city field, getting more detailed (E.G. "Houdan, Yvelines") as needed.
• Department numbers as a "banner" within the filename could be nixed. IMO these are less user friendly, being smushed right up against the route number, and counterintuitive for those of us who like to access a route in the HB by typing its URL (and r= argument) directly into the browser address bar.

Somehow I forgot the answer was Yes long enough to type all that out. :P
fraidfd;FRA-IDF;D142;Yvelines;;;fraidf.d014278;
fraidfd;FRA-IDF;D142;Val-d’Oise;;;fraidf.d014295;

These two can be concatenated into a single route.

I should rephrase:
Are route numbers ever duplicated in different departments in the same region, other than as a single route crossing department boundaries?

The first system, Île-de-France Routes Départementales (fraidf) will be "in devel" with the next site update. 109 routes of Département Yvelines (ISO-3166-2 code: FR-78) and 1 route of Département Val-d’Oise (FR-95). The department numbers are used as banner.

There can be duplicates, just as long as they don't both share a bordering department. I think there might be one in NAQ that could have a slight issue, but other than that, we're fine.

yep, that's the way we should go - and hope that there are no duplicates.
If there are, we can borrow the "either add a 4th letter to a 3-letter part of one of the labels, or choose 3 different letters for that label" rule.

In the US there are some routes ending at county lines; those are just truncated to 3 letters.

There are 18 regions but almost 100 departments.
Currently exactly 100.

Please take it if you've got time. You're obviously paying a lot more attention to what's going on up there than I am.

It's not going active until someone does a peer review, and no one has indicated any interest in that in 2 years.

I thought canqc was still in your hands, at least until it goes active.

I have to make some changes to A-10, A-15, and A-20 for the new Champlain Bridge, which will also affect QC 134 which is concurrent with Autoroutes on the interchange with the south end of the bridge. I can take care of QC 134, and QC 243, while I'm at it.

AIUI, the conversion of A-720 to QC 136 (Montreal) is still in progress.

Updates to Highway Data / VT: VT38 west end point
« Last post by cl94 on July 14, 2019, 05:58:38 pm »
I drove VT 38 today and, while internal VTrans documents say it extends to VT 36, the "END" sign WB is at the curve west of County Road (shield assembly has been replaced since GSV went through and it is now clearly legible). The town-maintained road is completely unsigned west of there and no signs exist from VT 36. Since precedent on TM is to follow signed begin/end points for state routes, I propose that we truncate VT 38 to the END sign and end of state maintenance.

Ah ok, departments not regions. A smaller entity. In the US there are some routes ending at county lines; those are just truncated to 3 letters.
