Wisconsin County Highways?
« on: June 06, 2016, 09:36:37 pm »
Dear viewer,

I have grown interest with TM over the last couple months and would like to help by getting involved. I currently live in Wisconsin and would like to help improve the TM site in Wisconsin.

If you are currently contributing to Wisconsin, if there is any way I can help out, I will take it gladly. Thank you for reading and I hope that I can help out!

Thanks,

Dear viewer,

If no one is currently planning on developing Wisconsin County Highways, I would be glad to make them. I am not sure if this site is ready for County Highways yet, which is why I'm asking. I would be happy to make the Wisconsin County Highways anytime.

Thanks,

We aren't doing county routes anywhere in the U.S., anytime soon. I don't see us doing them just in one state, and not any of the neighboring states let alone all the others that have county routes. Especially since there are states, and Canadian provinces, so far without their own state/province route sets, which is a priority at the moment. New team members willing to take on states other than their own, to help fill those gaps, are the most welcome additions to our team.

One other consideration: adding county routes to our maps would often make any map displays very cluttered. Do people really want to get into that level of detail?

Also, if Mississippi State Highways also are needed, I would be glad to help those two states, Mississippi and Alabama.

Thanks,

Before you'd contribute anything new, you'd want to help out with some review of the systems currently in "preview" status, looking for any problems so they could be fixed and the systems promoted to "active" status.

I agree with the others here on county routes - not in the scope of our project.  That said, if someone wanted to run their own instance of our software with their own data that included, say, county routes, nothing is stopping them.  They just won't be part of our mainline project.

If I chose to work on those, how do I create the highways? I'm not sure how to make waypoints and stuff like that.

Might want to read up on other threads and look through data files to get a feel for this before volunteering yourself to work on a state/province/country.
